Animal Personality Gallery
All paintings on this page are available. Each is as original. I paint black dogs in situations that all pet parents are likely to experience or have experienced. It is sad that black dogs, and even kitties, are the last ones to be adopted at shelters. The fur babies painted here show how loving and playful they can be. There are also pet portraits to honor that special pet and a Texas Longhorn for the Western enthusiast.
Mr. Roadruner is after his favorite meal - a lizard. This oil on board is called "Chasing Lizards" and is 6 x 18.
