gratitude pie with sprinkles!

Flanegan | 6" x 6"  |  oil on primed, reclaimed wood panel  |  sold

   We're so grateful to see, smell and feel the rain addition to the promising forecast of more showers this weekend.
   There was an article in Monday's New York Times' Science section entitled, "A Serving Of Gratitude May Save The Day". More and more research supported the notion that giving thanks is good for you.
   May we all remember that when gathered around the table with family and friends...and one kind, well-meaning soul ingites the conversation with politics or the economy. (lol!)
   A joyful Thanksgiving holiday to all. Serve it up and cop an 'attitude of gratitude' - they say it's contagious!

grace during the storm

   6" x 6"  |  oil on panel  | nfs

We were blessed with a half inch of rain today - it was absolutely glorious.
The Grace didn't think so. She may be going deaf, but she heard|felt the thunder loud and clear this morning. She took cover under the sheets and wagged her tail as if to ask if everything was going to be alright.
Here's to feeling safe and comforting those we love during the storm.

long hot summer

     11" x 14" acrylic on canvas panel  | $400 to PAWS - thank you Sam!

One of the most popular spots to escape the searing heat last summer was under the ceiling fan...ahhh.

This is Kirby, our alpha basset, going vogue while cooling off. This painting of her will be auctioned off this Sunday at the Fall Harvest Feast, benefiting the PAWS Shelter and Humane Society. Read more about this organization and their fundraising events here.

Many, many thanks to the wonderful Cambron sisters for all they do for the Dripping Springs community.
