I love the Dallas Bath House!

This weekend I will be showing at the Dallas Bath House and this morning I had a knock on my door from one of the neighborhood kids with a hand written invitation to the opening. It turns out that a lovely young lady that lives on my street will have a piece in the back …

Perry The Doxie

Lots of pet portraits this week. Just proofed Perry the Doxie today. I am in one of those frantic spaces of trying to get ahead of my commissions and be totally caught up with work. It never really happens, but I can try.

Cat The Robot

This robot gal is named after my sweet niece Catherine. The human Cat is funny, fashionable, and beautiful just like her Mom. I gave my robot a Prada handbag and the world in one hand, because even though sweet Cat does not know it right now she can indeed hold the world in her hand …

Wedgewood Robot

In looking for a good name for today’s bot I googled “famous accountants”, laughing at the same time because who really thinks about accountants being famous. I wanted to name him after an accountant because of his large chest panel of adding buttons. I discovered the following: Josiah Wedgewood. Yes, that Wedgewood, the famous potter—he …
