If you could read my mind......

My web site has new and older work available for sale ...over 45 paintings in a variety of sizes, subjects and price range, framed and unframed are listed there. Some are gallery paintings that were exhibited in juried shows and some have won awards for painting excellence.

Rescues caring for the ever increasing population of homeless pets are facing the same struggles with the economy as the rest of us. We will all be digging deeper this year with the cost of living rising every week. Buying art from ART HELPING ANIMALS artists is one way to be sure rescue gets a donation but... you can also directly help at your own local shelter!

As an artist, I am happy to help through art. My donations range from 20% to 100% with every sale and also include donations of art and prints of past work for charity auctions.

ART HELPING ANIMALS artists have donated over $ 50,000.00 to rescue in 2.5 yrs!

If you are planning to purchase animal art or other pieces of art and my work interests you...please feel confident that a homeless animal will also benefit from the sale.
Thanks for all the support in the past and I look forward to providing new pieces for rescue in the future as well.


Just off the easel and newly available on Ebay.

Hello Dolly - First Look on the easel!

Work In Progress
Cocker Spaniel Rescue of New England
This rescue recently contacted artists that help animals with art for their annual October Fund Raiser...The Joey Fund.
The idea is to help special needs cockers with their expensive medical care...thereby getting them healthy and rehabbed and ready for a new forever home.

DOLLY inspired the painting ...she is blind due to untreated diabetes and is awaiting surgery to remove cataracts.
She is only 5 or 6 yrs old.
This painting when done will be offered to help with 20% to the charity.
ON EBAY through Mission Fish.
coming soon ...stay tuned!
The painting for their October Fund Raiser of one of their adoptable dogs will be auctioned as a

New On the Easel - July

On the easel:

"Eggs Are On The Menu"
new oil full of light

July 4th was a fun holiday hope everyone had a safe time.

Recently finished the intital paintings for the TABBY's PLACE promo for rescues in our Art Helping Animals fellowship.
They are listing on Ebay. We have a great selection of art for that rescue. It runs for 2months and the You Tube video is great.

I have some new still life almost ready to list for sale with a portion to rescue.
They are still life oils.
Hope to finish them soon.
Updating my web site with available work. Still playing catch up with work but I can see the light much better ....there are snow flakes in the forcast! HA HA HA!
Stay tuned!

I love New York.... to paint especially!

UPDATE!: this painting has sold

just off the easel...
This little 8x10 oil on board was inspired by one of my snap shots taken on a past trip to the big apple.
I find that I love painting city scenes...they are more impressionistic in style, looser for me and more fun to add bits and pieces of color and information.
This painting is offered to assist the Northern Rockies Regional Office of the Humane Society and can be found on Ebay.
When you paint this type of subject or any scene really you don't realize how you become part of the location while you are painting...I lose myself in the artwork as I paint ANYTHING but when it is a landscape or cityscape you really are inside the scene until you put the brush down. At least that is how it is for this artist. It makes traveling in the studio something defying time and space.
A new city scene is in the works and on the easel.
Coming Soon...stay tuned!
