I stopped by a bookstore while in downtown Davis. The volunteer there had her corgie, Sutter, so friendly. Instantly she rolled on her back for a rub on her tummy. With the owner’s permission I took several photos since Sutter wanted more pats. Finally got a couple of good shots.

My dogs portraits of various dogs that I met while walking my dog Kava is now exhibiting at the Avid Reader during the month of April. These are all sized at 10 x 10 x 1 3/8 inches oil on gallery wrapped canvas. Each one of these except for Kava (my dog) are available for purchase at my DailyPaintworks store or for commission go to my Etsy shop. The price is $175 for either the painting or commission.


My next door neighbor’s dog, Tanzi. Tanzi and my dog, Kava, are “friends”. They run up and down the side of the houses barking and chasing each other.

My sister, my biggest fan, handed me a photo of her friend’s dog, Bailey. Love the big smile and the blue hat on this happy fellow!

A corgie that I ran into while walking my dog. Delicious looking little thing. Her owner explained that her dog is named after an Italian dessert.

Buttons is a dog I met at a park with his master. I only took one phone photo of him and he posed just perfectly.

This painting began a series of portraits of dogs I met while I’m walking my dog.
