Painting with Toys & Book - "Dog Dog"


"Dog Dog"

This little oil painting was painted for a friend and fellow artist's little boy.   One of his favorite toys is his little stuffed pooch he calls "Dog Dog."  The book "Curious George" just happens to be his favorite book too. I had to include a little "bird" in the painting too, since "painting birds" is my specialty.  

I think he really liked it.  Here is a photo of him receiving his surprise painting at my recent art show:


His father is one of the most talented artists I know named "Santiago."  You just have to take a look at his incredible paintings.  Here is a link to his website of amazing trains, planes and automobiles.

Thanks for stopping by!

"Time To Go"

This brand new oil painting is only 5 x 7".  It has two little "hummingbirds" getting ready to leave the nest.  I just finished painting it at the "Celebration of Fine Art" show in Scottsdale.  This 10 week long event ends in two weeks.  

It is a wonderful art show that brings together 100 artists from across the globe.  For show information, click here:

Baseball Art - "The Rookie" - getting ready for Spring Training


"The Rookie"

I began this oil painting recently while getting ready for "Spring Training" in Arizona.  It has a curious little bird (a chickadee) looking into the "Rawlings" baseball glove.  The size of this painting is 9 x 12" and it is custom framed and for sale at the "Celebration of Fine Art" in Scottsdale, Arizona.  

This show brings together 100 artists from all over the country.  We have three weeks left of this 10 week long event.  Here are a few snapshots of this "one of a kind" oil painting in progress:


Here I am working on the oil painting during the "Celebration of Fine Art" show
