Artwork for sale.

The dog had emergency surgery today and I'm holding a benefit sale to help cover the expenses. He ate  some of his blanket, after being totally content with sleeping on it for the last 2 years. It caused a blockage and other complications. He made it through surgery and we should know more over the next couple of days. I uploaded some more animal paintings to the website.  Apparently, animals feature more prominently in my work than I thought.

 I included the pipe because I like it next to "Postcard Dog."

I can also do commission work, relative to this fundraiser. If you're interested, contact me via my website. Once his bills are paid, I'll set aside a percentage from this body of work to help other animal organizations in need.

Phase 1: containers and kayaks.

Phase 1 in which I purchase (15) 12-gallon flip-top containers and later dream I am in an ocean in the middle of the night kayaking to nowhere in particular. I experince a feeling of hope and peace. I am in motion.

Wiki entry

I've started noticing that everyone has a Wikipedia entry. You really don't need to accomplish anything. Just hire an intern. The less adept at complex sentence structure, the better.

Early life

Her mother was the daughter of the renown Victorian Red Cross volunteer and philanthropist noted for her charity work. Her father scribbled columns of large numbers on envelopes. She credits a visit to a hog farm and piece of barbwire nearly blinding her as a child, along with a gift of a western saddle, but no horse, as events that impacted her decision to become an artist.
