Backyard nemesis? or cute creature?

Hello Bunny

If you were like us this summer, you saw a lot of these in your yard this year. Did you know it's the year of the rabbit according to the Chinese calendar. Well they took full advantage of that and proceeded to eat everything in our yards-perennials, annuals, grass, bushes, trees. 

Darn it, they sure are cute though.

This is a new commission of two good friends of ours. They took at tour at the Ocean Spray cranberry bog that is located in Lakeville MA and got some great shots. I just loved the colors of the bog, the trees, as well as their outfits.

Lighting the way to Christmas

This Little Light of Mine

As artists, we need to start thinking early about Christmas. I've had this image on the waiting list to paint for awhile now, and I decided now was the time to do it. 

I just loved this girl's outfit-the red tulle skirt and matching hat and scarf as well as the slightly oversized fleece jacket. The background trees and bushes also attracted me to paint this scene. The lantern light was a little bit of challenge to make it appear to "glow" but I think the yellow is a nice contrast to the red.

I'll be making these into Christmas cards very soon.

Cute baby penguins

Penguin Parents

I've been wanting to paint penguins for awhile now and when I spotted this cute image on I knew this was the one. We get quite a few requests at the gallery for penguin paintings. I think they are very popular. And I can see why. They are so darn fun and the babies are so cute!
