JRT pet portrait rock donation

This piece I just completed as a donation for a jack russell terrier rescue fundraiser, Carolinas Jack Russell Terrier Club, in South Carolina. I have a JRT mix, my dog Gumbo, and I love those little terriers.

I’m happy to help out animal rescues when I can. 🙂

Minnie’s Seinfeld cats

Originally uploaded by tagscats

This is the finished piece for my second place winner in my Valentine’s Day raffle that benefited a local feline rescue. This second place winner won a rock portrait and I painted 3 of her cats on this large rock! She calls them her Seinfeld cats, and this is Kramer, Jerry and George! Such cute cats and such fun subjects! Enjoy them Minnie!!

I have a beautiful black cat to paint in oils on canvas for the first place winner, that will be arriving here soon, so stay tuned!

was commissioned to paint a lovely german shepherd, and while I was working on this rock portrait, Rusty suddenly and tragically passed away. So bittersweet. I am so hoping his owner finds comfort in this portrait. Rusty was such a beautiful dog.

Each artist comes up with a piece to fit the theme, this month’s theme is chickens! All pieces start at $.99, no reserve. Search for NFAC on Ebay to find lots of great art by fabulous artists!

I decided to do a portrait of a rock hen, on a river rock of course! So, check it out and bid! You know you want to!
