I painted this little 5x7" watercolour commission for a new client. What a honey their dog is!! I love that her little front paw is off the ground as she runs towards her owner. : )

$100 - 8x10"original watercolour painting.

One of my favourite models, I love her classic thoughtful look.
I made a quick slide show of the painting process for this portrait, which you can see on my Instagram page!

little field friend

$60 - 5x7"original watercolour painting with 8x10"mat. 
Despite the freezing rain here in Toronto, this little field friend is enjoying his warm backyard.  
This is the first time I've drawn and painted a mouse. I couldn't resist painting his super cute little pink nose. I welcome any excuse to use hot pink since, besides flowers, I don't get to dip into it much. : )

a new path

$60 - 8x10"original watercolour painting.

I was inspired to paint this after a wonderful demo by the talented artist Art Cunanan at Banbury Club. It's on cold-pressed paper which offers up the potential for lovely washes. It's great. I've been using hot-pressed paper for it's wonderful paint vibrancy however, it doesn't give a nice wash like cold-pressed. Hence, a new path!
