Little Fox

Little Fox 8 x 10 acrylic on stretched canvas  SOLD
Fox kits are such winsome subjects to paint. This young fox is doing a bit of lone exploring. Even so, he keeps looking back, keeping an eye on mom and his siblings. I'm taking the plunge with this painting and making it my first DPW auction.

What's Up?

What's Up? 12 x 9 oil on stretched canvas   SOLD
I love Blue Jays. I know they're noisy, pushy, and some say even aggressive. They're also drop-dead gorgeous, inquisitive, intelligent, and fun to watch.  Winter and summer they fill our yard with life and color.
