This is Stanley!

This is Stanley!  The warm weather is here and so I've been out a lot riding in the woods and camping.  Finally, though, I've finished this dog portrait.  Stanley, the Boston Terrier.  Enjoy!

The process

I got a little behind on posting portrait updates, sorry.  This Boston Terrier is Stanley. 

Boston terrier portrait started

I'm catching up on my portrait process.  I've been out of the studio lately.  Biking, hiking, and camping has kind of taken over.  Bear with me...

Kitten portrait

This is one of many street kittens I've helped.  Unfortunately, this one has a sad story.  This kitten got ill and didn't recover.  Kittens have it rough out there on the street, even with the help of their mama.

This is Chance!

I finished a new dog portrait. This is Chance.  Considering what the Eagles did this year, I gave a little flare to this Eagle's fan.  

Back to work.

I took a quick trip to the west coast.  Now I'm back to work on Chance's dog portrait.

Dog portrait on the drawing table

I have a new dog portrait on the drawing table. This dog portrait is of Chance.  The owner is an Eagles fan. So, considering what they did this year, I added an Eagles dog tag.

Late night drawing session

Frankie, as always, is chillin' with me as I draw a new cat portrait.  This one is of a street kitten that I tried to help.  Unfortunately, the kitten passed away.  It's tuff out there on the streets for kittens in those 1st six months of life.  Stay tuned...

Mr. Orange Cat

This cat visits me almost everyday on my back deck.  Usually I find him in the trees waiting for the birds.  I call him Mr. Orange Cat.

The animals.

Everyday, the animals gather to hang out with me in the studio.  Sometimes they even get along such as in this picture. Usually, though, Max wants to play.  The cats on the other hand think he's way to big to play with.
