One of the things that an artist enjoys seeing or hearing about is the reactions that the clients have when the painting is received. Some of these furry family members have passed and there is always a show of emotion. A smile, a tear, and even a story. One client told me, "It's so nice to have her back with us." That, for an artist, is one of our great rewards.

Meet Indiana Magical Moonstone (aka "Indie")...
This is his story:
"Indie came into my life from Indiana on my way back home to California. He was a gift from my daughter and grandkids. Indie was my little buddy from the beginning. Sweet personality, picky eater, typical Sheltie bark, and most importantly, Indie lived up to his name...he was truly Magical."
Meet Lucy...Here's her story from her family:
"Oh...Lovely Lucy was wildly intelligent. She also had a gentle soul. If we weren't home, she would just go over to the neighbor's house for the day. She loved to run as fast as she could at the beach and she loved cheese. She slept with my daughter every night and "protected" her from the monsters."
"Penelope arrived on our doorstep in October 2017 as a 6-month-old kitten. She immediately won our hearts, but it was a rather tumultuous start. Nibby was not about to have an indoor cat, although just in the three prior weeks, he’d been talking about Pepe' Le Pew and (if we were ever to have a cat), she’d have to be named Penelope.
Penelope is a pure treasure and part of our household now. She’s over-the-top independent, fetches toys like a dog, and purr’s continually, but she is not a lap kitty unless SHE feels like it.
Never underestimate what might appear at your doorstep; it could just be your next best fur baby!"
Meet Cutter...Here's his story from his family:
"He joined our family as a puppy when our daughter purchased him at a cutting horse show hence the name Cutter. A smooth coat tricolor Australian Shepherd, he quickly became Gerald's farming buddy. Anyone swinging their arms or getting too close to Gerald could expect a quick nip to usher them back to their place. Cutter understood English perfectly. He would follow sentence directions as though he were a human in a dog body. Eleven years of companionship and love filled our hearts."
Meet Jinx... Here's her story:
"When we first saw Jinx, she sitting on the side of a rural gravel road. When we came back through after running our errands she was still sitting in the same spot. We patiently coaxed her into the vehicle and brought her home. She has been our loving, protective girl ever since."
Meet "Gracie"... here's her story:
"Gracie was an Abyssinian kitten when she joined our family early one Spring, and although she was ours from the first time the wife and two daughters saw her at a Cincinnati cat show, we had to wait three months to bring her home. She came into our life as though she had been a part of the family for years; no trepidation with this young lady! She was more dog-like than cat. When the doorbell rang, she would run to the door and then look back at you like, “Hurry up, we have a friend at the door!” She sat regally like a princess, but she was full of mischief. If you were not a cat lover, she worked on you over time to change your mind; and most people did. We miss Gracie Lou Freebush to this day….but have lots of wonderful memories."
Meet Percy... Here's his story:
"He was adopted 11 yrs ago at the local Humane Society by when our son was 10 yrs old. Out of ALL the kittens that were available he chose the one that had a bit of an attitude and drew blood. No amount of coaxing him to choose another worked. Aaron's reply was "He didn't mean to....this is the one I want." Let just say, on occasion he still draws blood if you don't respect his boundaries, but out of all the cats we have had Percy still remains Aaron's favorite"
Meet Tanner...Here's his story:
"Hitchhiking underneath a church van...that's how our Tanner came to us. My wife found him meowing beside the van with grease/oil on his fur and burned paws. What a ride that must have been. When she approached him, the pose in the the painting is how he greeted her. Tanner is our sweet mellow and much loved cat."

Meet "Her Lady Sassie Sweetie of Earle" (aka: Lady)...
"We live in a community that was formerly known as Earle, named after John Earle, an Englishman who had come to the area around 1828. Lady is 10 yrs old and you would think she was still a pup. She dances on her back feet as her greeting, she follows me room to room, and is very bouncy. As the book on Westies say 'If there's a Westie in the room - you will know it!'
