Can I Come IN, Please!!

This is a colored pencil drawing of my neighbor's dog Beau. He comes to visit me on a regular basis and always wants to come in. By the time he gets to my house he is usually covered in mud , so needless to say he does not come in! He is a very sweet, very LARGE, black Lab and I look forward to his visits!

Cowboy toilet seat

This is the cowboy toilet seat I carved for my sister Sandy to go in her western themed bathroom. She had asked for one resembling a small pin she had depicting a cowboy and rope. The bottom side of the lid also has the words" Happy Trails to You" carved into it. I hope it brings her many years of non porcelain sitting pleasure! :)

Parrot Talk

Here is a new custom ordered gourd I just finished. It has a military McCaw, a Scarlet Mccaw and a hyacinth Mccaw along with a blue fronted Amazon. I really enjoyed working on all the bright colors in the birds! The top is removable so any number of treasures could be kept inside!

Hunter portrait

This was an old colored pencil drawing I started back in 02 and I just came across it and decided to finish it. I didn't like it before but with a new look after all this time I was able to fix it , and I think the result turned out quite nice. It always amazes me how things look different after a break!

Yellow Beauty

Here is a colored pencil drawing I did to donate to my reining horse club last night for the Chinese auction, at the banquet. Congrats to the winner! Hope you enjoy it! We all had a wonderful night with good food , good fellowship, and lots of winners! Thank you to all that work so hard to bring to it all together!
