Here is a painting I created several years ago, called Birthday Boy.  He awaits his cake and presents with eager anticipation:

Wishing you all the best!!

Doreen,

That is a great shot of the dog.

Hi, I have been off the site for a while.  I am very busy working on 2 murals for my church.  I belong to the  Triple Cross Cowboy Church here in Granbury.  Each of these murals is 12'X78' so I am going to be busy for some time.  Plus I am reproducing photographs on canvas and stretching them like oils.  They will all be in the range of 4'X6' to decorate some other areas of the church.  At this point I will guess that there will be about 20 of them.
