The Elusive Emu (Sold)

6x6", oil on panel.

The emu is a strange bird. First off, they're HUGE (the second largest bird alive). They make weird sounds with their neck that sound like a loud, booming drum (it probably means "Leave me alone!").

This is one of my dad's emus (a few years ago, he and my stepmom started acquiring a flock of animals). The 2 emus hang out with a miniature deer. Not something you see every day!

Orchids (Sold)

12x12", oil on canvas. Painted on commission.

The person who commissioned this painting bought it as a birthday gift for his girlfriend. Now that's a cool idea! He scored a lot of points with his significant other; she was thrilled and said she would have never expected it.

So, gentlemen, something to think about the next time you can't think of a gift idea!

This is the "secret painting" I finished last week as a gift. Had a great holiday season, but can't WAIT to get back into the studio!
