acrylic, 12" x 12"

Brownie Boy! This is my little guy! This portrait was done for Brownie's 2nd Adoption Anniversary (January 21st).  Brownie is a mini apricot poodle-angel mix. Brownie endured heart-ache and loss. Lucky for us, Brownie never gave up and he was open to giving life and love another chance.  We enjoy snuggling, car rides, kooky beach sprints, delicious brunches and lots of squeaky toy time. Thank you Brownie for all of your smiles and hugs.

Lucy suffered a severe pelvic injury before being brought to the East Bay SPCA. This was especially hard because Lucy HATES being vulnerable. After all, Lucy is cool with her affections and a ruthless rodent assassin. However, she endured thanks to many kind, determined and helping hands. One special person took Lucy out in the sun every day where some special healing seemed to occur. Lucy learned and taught something about love and made a full recovery.

Stella TX
acrylic, 12" x 12"
Stella lived in Houston, TX. She started out as a foster dog, misunderstood for being a bull mastiff/pit-bull/boxer mix. However, her people soon realized, "Stella is the kind of dog you get once in a lifetime, if you're lucky." Stella went on to have multiple fan clubs, to help other foster dogs, and she never let any flying food hit the ground.
