This is a dog I photo'd here in Minnesota at a game trial.
This is on of my neighbor's puppies. Her female dog had 11 pups in her last litter!
This little guy is from a Montana trip years ago.

I have been painting all day, every day for weeks on end to prepare for the Easton Waterfowl Festival in November. Ask any artist...all that time in the studio can make you crazy and sometimes you just need to get out into the open air to refill your "creative stores". I had the opportunity to go to the Minnesota Wildlife Connection on Saturday and photograph some amazing animals. I got to feed a bear from my lips, carry a cougar cub and just have a great time. Best of all, I am completely rested and recharged to get back in the studio and work. Watch for some new work soon...

This little bear is Buford. He was raised by this hound dog and they are inseparable. She lost her litter on the same day he was born, they put him with her and the rest is, as they say, history.

I may be one of the most prolific fuschia killers on the planet. Every spring, I buy three from the local gardens and slowly, methodically murder them over the course of the summer. But...I always get plenty of pictures and color sketches before they go, so I guess you can say that they don't die in vain. I may have been born with a black thumb, but I was also born for a great admiration for them.
These are both in oil on board. I am growing more and more fond of oils the more I do them.
