51st Annual Exhibition of the Society of Animal Artists

I'm honored to announce Caribbean Cruise”, has been selected for the 51st Annual Exhibition of the Society of Animal Artists, to be displayed from September 17 through December 31, 2011 at the Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City, MI.

If you are in or around the state of Michigan, I highly recommend attending or viewing this exhibition.  

For more information about the show or the National Tour that follows, check out the website :

I'll list the tour itinerary should this painting be selected for the annual tour.  The selection has not been made for same as yet.  

It's been a great start to the year!  :)

Pet Portrait commission ~ on the easel

The pet portrait commission is coming along nicely with still much to complete.

I'm concentrating on the grasses and ground at this time.  Once the back ground has been painted in, I'll return to the kitty for some last details pulling it all together.

This portrait has been a lot of fun in that the client wanted a nature setting.  This kitty spends most days out in and out of the woods surrounding the property and play hunting.  (well, maybe not always, it is a cat)

I'll post  the completed painting as time allows.  Look for the updates in several weeks.
