Ellie and Natasha out for tea

Ellie (the yellow dog on the left) and Natasha (the malamute) are best friends. They go on a trip to the Bahamas, to baseball games and have other adventures. I have them in sets of note cards for sale - a cartoon and quote on the front, blank on the inside to write your own message.

The girls are based on my best friend, Vicki and myself when we were in college. We have been friends since then.... a very, long time!

They are also based on real dogs I've had myself named Ellie and Natasha. Let me know if you have comments or would like to buy some cards. Or if you like them, pass this page along to your friends or post on Facebook.

Happy Birthday, Evie!

My daughter Liz rescued two racing greyhounds, Evie and Theresa. Here is a portrait I did of Liz and Evie from a photo of the day they first met. What incredible happiness they bring to all of us.
The portrait is 22" x 30" done in Unison pastels.

Evie is 7 years old tomorrow!

Happy Birthday, Evie!!!

If you would like a portrait of a human or animal - or both! please contact me!
