Bardy

10 x 12 oil on gallery wrapped canvas
artist:  Nancy Levinson
Meet Bardy.  Named after the the Packer's coach Vince Lambardi
This portrait was a gift for a good friend in New York who is
a die hard Packer's fan.  She had commissioned me to paint
her other dogs in the past.  I needed a special gift for her
when she was ordained into the Episcopalian priesthood
in Sept.  A very special occasion calls for a special gift.

The Skunk Train

artist: Nancy Levinson
We were in Mendocino when we discovered The Skunk Train.
This Cocker Spaniel was watching the scenery go by while 
leaning out the window.  I took the picture with my phone
while leaning out a window a few seats down.
How great is it that you can take your four legged friend
on a scenic train ride through the redwoods in Northern Ca.

Watercolor Rottweiler Painting, "Chance and Tiller", by International Watercolor Artist, Donna L. Martin

 
 
This is a painting I completed to donate to the Rottweiler Rescue. Their names are Chance and Tiller and they belonged to a very good friend of mine. When she saw the painting, she had to have it for herself. I have to be honest, when I first took on this challenge, I did not know if I could do Chance and Tiller justice. When I delivered the painting and saw the tears of joy in my friend's eyes, I knew it turned out alright!

The original piece is sold, but prints are available in various sizes. View more of my work at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/1-donna-martin.html

Dirty Dog

Dirty Dog, Sloppy Joe                                  

24 x 18 oil on gallery wrapped canvas    .............. $500.

Who hasn't experienced the "dirty dog".  It's a rainy day and a good day for digging holes.  
And the floor was just mopped.  Of course.  Now to get him to the bathtub before he
decides it's nap time on the sofa..........
