One of my recent house portraits. This is a house in Providence, RI and was presented by my client to his wife for Christmas. I can't wait to hear what her reaction was! She won't be returning this gift.

Here is the watercolor I donated to the Attleboro Art Museum's annual auction. It is on Lake "Winni", NH.

This watercolor on hand-made paper is my neighbor's Burnese Mountain Dog, he is such a big teddy bear of a dog! The rich texture of the paper really helped capture his fluffy coat.

This is a painting a client had me do of the day he and his girlfriend got engaged. I hope she loved it!
