Repartee Gallery

Bryun Lemon (the owner of Repartee Gallery) and me, posing with the new DawgArt display.  You can see the awesome Before And After book on the table.  This magical book shows the paintings alongside the reference photos I used to create them!  Bryun makes me laugh.  One of my visits to the gallery, he wore a fancy sequined sombrero the entire time and then once we were outside making arrangements (with cars driving by) for a permanent display he goes, "Oh, I forgot I had this on."  I should have taken a picture.

DawgArt, in the flesh!  (Not as exciting for me to see them in person, considering that I have stacks of paintings in my house, but fun for others who have only seen the paintings in digital images.)  It is a thrill to have them in a bona fide gallery though!

Thanks Bryun, Michael and Repartee!

Here is a painting I finished for Mother's Day.  This is my mom's cat, Lady.  She was killed by a dog in their neighborhood.  It was very sad to all of us and especially my mom that these irresponsible owners didn't take better care of their out-of-control pet.  The dog also mauled a postal worker in the neighborhood and was ultimately euthanized.  This painting is a memorial to Lady and a reminder to pet owners to take responsibility for the animals in their care.  A dog with this kind of problem isn't a happy dog.  We miss Lady.  To get a print of this painting, click here.
