Paintings and Things

Paintings and Things

My career path changed. Life got busy. From part time healthy chef/coach to managing a rapidly growing cafe & restaurant, art will always be in my life. Whether I’m supporting other artists or modeling my own pieces, the various art forms will continue to swirl my creative juices.

This food presentation is representative of our local gardens. It was shared with neighbors and friends. From roasted mini zucchinis to dried apricots, fresh fruit, asparagus spears, herbs, beans and nuts, it was enjoyed visually and tastfully!

Moving on…I have been a supporting artist for Fetch-A-Cure for several years.

My leather cat “Tom” won pick of the litter and raised a lot of money for the non profit organization. This is one of many projects where I raised money for Fetch.

“Tom” sits on a fish base made of turquoise beads and such. A metal sculpture gone leather!

An old friend that introduced me to Fetch-A-Cure wanted a painting of his dog. Meet Trevor.  This painting hangs in a handsome den.

A friend saw “Trevor” and decided on a surprise birthday painting of a deceased German Shepherd. In memory of “Wolfe”.

For the love of Greece and the yearning for a painting in her room, I adorned my dear Zoe with a dream come true.  For life my friend. I will always love you and your sissy, Alexis.

My brother and his lover have this sweetheart of a dog, Ivy.

At random I started painting Ivy and decided it would make a special holiday gift.  She does clown around quite a bit…

My best-in-the-world hair stylist has a tiny, ole dog “Colby”.  Colby is over 18 years old. A memorable gift that will last a life time.

And the most recent painting commission was from a wonderful man to his lovely bride.

As the beagle boys slept, they shaped a heart. Marv and E are friends forever!

Come visit me at Stir Crazy Cafe! We feature local artists on a monthly basis. In most cases the art is for sale. We also have Thursday music nights featuring RVA bands (mostly). Remember to support the locals sharing their talent and bringing happiness in the moment or eternally in your home. Thank you for taking the time to view my stuff.
