Doodle sketches

I did some drawings to go on the back of the activity/word search pages we put out each weekend at the church. The original idea was that there would be a coloring page for any kids who come, but also a difficult enough word…

Happy birthday, Shermie

Remembering Shermie on his birthday today. The Sherminator was my original Big Black “Dog” when I first started pet portraits. He would come when called like one of the dogs. Better than the dogs, actually. Philphil trained him well. Save

Finished Orange Grove mural

Finished up the Orange Grove storefront mural at SJ’s International Food Market at 1108 Overcash Drive in Dunedin, Florida over Thanksgiving weekend.This area of town used to be part of a large orange grove back in the day. Dunedin is known as a very…

Sparkly supernova of glittery awesomeness

I have a lot of sparkly friends that this is for. Please continue shining on.

Diva flashback

Oh my goodness. One of the annoying things about having gone through being the recipient of toxic chemicals being pumped directly into your heart (aka chemotherapy) is the memory loss, or rather memory vagueness of my past self. I mean, I can still sit…

Personalized artwork

I recently made these these pieces for some boater friends that I wanted to share. I love making artwork personalized like this because it’s not just the “same old” anyone can pick up in a retail store but specific to the tastes and interests…

Upscale Resale storefront windows

In between rain showers and the humidity, it took me more than normal time to paint Janice’s windows, but they are up and done. I think I will be going back and adding a top border with leopard print…. and possibly doing the same…

Catnip coma

Grey muzzles

My Nemo’s muzzle is gone nearly all silver. He was right up near the pillow when I took this picture and I am surprised it came out in focus. He usually makes the effort to sneak up next to me not so much to…

Happy New Year 2016

Good news

Just got good news about last week’s PET scan: at first one in August I lit up like a Christmas tree and now my neck and chest are clear and the abdominal zone has come way down. Also, my bone marrow is showing as…

Birthday painting

It’s Charlie’s birthday today! While we are in mid-reno of his house, he had casually mentioned that perhaps I would paint a mural of some sort on one of the walls, nothing in particular. I thought about it and decided on the perfect subject:…

Dogtoberfest 2014

Had a great time with the humans here in Dogedin. Not only did Charlie and I stop in to the kissing booth at Pawlicious Poochie Pet Rescue’s hot pink tent, but the Doxie sculptures were auctioned off to help raise money for Suncoast Animal…

Cherry Blossoms window

I painted the storefront windows at SomSom’s handmade boutique here in town. We did a pair of Sakura, or Japanese Cherry Blossom, trees and butterflies.

Storefront window: shore birds

My theme for the window was shore birds. Dunedin, Florida has State Park beaches kept in their naturalized state and are just gorgeous. Here on Second Time Treasures‘ storefront are some of the critters we did for this season.

My biggest fans

The fussing and whining that goes on as I walk twenty five paces to the storefront and go in and then the cheering that ensues as I again approach the car …. well, who wouldn’t be completely flattered? #LuvMyGoobieDogs

Doodling with Wordle

The Boys

Got this great shot of my favourite boys mugging for the camera.

My lovely assistant on break

He’s been right at my side as I get some of my dog sculptures ready for a March showing here in town.
