Another Dog Pounder

I couldn't resist painting this cute face. This is actually a puppy that was at Oxford-Lafayette Humane Society when I went over to photograph this years subject for their art auction Paws for Art. I did go by about a week later and this baby had been adopted.
Cyd Dunlap, President of OLHS saw this and said that this little one is named Basil and is now living in a happy home!

Junior a/k/a Houdini - Cat Watercolor Study

Junior a/k/a Houdini
Watercolor on Board
6 x 6

Being a dog person, I have always been a bit indifferent to cats. But, since someone decided to make yet another animal donation to my collection, I have learned that cats can be a tremendous amount of fun and are full of unpredictable antics. I have had several litters of roadside critters "walk up" lately. Junior (because he looks just like his Mom) is one of them.

Mississippi Delta - Oil Landscape Painting

Mississippi Delta
Oil/Palette Knife
5 x 7

This is where the hills meet the flatland of the Mississippi Delta. This change in elevation is actually divided by a highway known as "Valley Road" that sits on the last flat edge just before the abrupt incline of the hills. I live just off this road on the hill side.
