Debby’s Three Cats: Harry, Louie and Izzy

Debby's Cats

I loved painting this one. Debby’s three kitties were jumbled up like a bowl of spaghetti. Painted in 2006. Oil on canvas, 16×20.

Sheba and the Man of the Wind


Memorial painting of my girl Sheba sitting on her favorite chair. I love the chair, too, but the nose on the Man of the Wind face on the back pokes you right in the spine, so it’s better off as a very fancy cat bed.

I didn’t have a good photo of her on the chair, so I improvised with a photo of the chair and a photo of her. Painted in 2006. Oil on canvas, 16×20.

Spencer the Aussie

Spencer is a strikingly handsome tri-colored Australian Shepherd. Love his David Bowie two-toned eyes. His owner’s favorite flower was a daisy, so I added some to his portrait. Painted in 2006. Oild on canvas, 16×20.

Lucy the Retriever


Lucy is another one where the photo of the dog was good, but the background was a yawn. Not sure of her actual breed, probably a mix, but she looks like a flat coated retriever. Painted in 2006. Oil on canvas, 16×20.
