My painting for today is Cosmo. This is one of my son's little
dogs.Today is my son's birthday and this is his present.
This sweet little dog has developed a very special bond to
him so I thought it would be fun if he had a little painting.

Here is the last of Halloween pieces that have been
haunting me, Booooooo! I think it may be my favorite.

cannot....If you look closely you may see what the cat can see
on Hallows eve.

"Black Moon"
oil on canvas - 8"x8"
animal art

This is the first of several Halloween pieces that have been
haunting me, Ooooooo. I used a little larger canvas this time to be
able to get the overall effect I wanted.
For a night when spirits of the dead wander around and witches fly
through the sky,it just seemed appropriate to have a black moon.

"Murial and Murphy"
oil on canvas - 6"x6"
animal art

This is the second piece in a series I call, Dog Days.
I think one of the favorite things in a dogs day is their walk,
so I thought I would capture these little moments when
they are happy. Here are two that I met in Goodale Park,
Columbus, Ohio. Murphy is on the left, a small pit bull.
Their master said that they are really good friends.

I moved this past year, back to an old neighborhood I use to
live in, where everybody goes for walks and usually with at
least one dog. This is one of the neighbors, I often see,
with her little dog who patiently waits for her while she
stops to chat with friends.

oil on canvas - 6"x6"

On one of my market days, I happened to find this pair of
well used rubber boots. I wanted to create a strong and bold
design on this one. I found a certain kind of beauty in the
simplicity of their shape and contrast to the sidewalk.

One of the things I look forward to in the late summer, is the
great Ohio corn. Found this farmer's basket full of a fresh supply.
It looked so tantalizing and colorful, I had to take some home.
