This is Sophie Lou and she has gone to doggy heaven.. She was a great loving girl.  We still miss her.

She is done from one of my photos and she is not for sale. I am just showing her to let you know that I can paint your special pet.

Sophie was done in oils on a 12″x 9″ canvas panel

I would need a very good clear photo of your baby  and about 3 weeks to paint  the portrait

Email me and we can talk.

Thank you for viewing my art

Hydrangeas LAL   is done in oils on a stretched canvas. I had the pleasure of doing this painting for the LAL in Livingston.

They were very welcoming and I joined the league.  Sam and I are meeting some very lovely people since we moved.

We miss our old friends but have visited and still love them too.

We love to meet people.

A pair of Sea gulls was done in oils and on canvas paper.  I think they came out nice.  They are signed and will be framed. Perfect for that place where you can see them each day.

Both African and Asian elephants have a pregnancy that approaches two years—22 months, to be exact. This is the longest gestation period for any land animal, and one —of the longest for any animal on earth. Elephants produce one baby at a time, and the youngster weighs around 105 kilograms (230 pounds) at birth.Dec 31, 2011
