"Penny" - Dog Portrait

Here's my latest painting!!!! 
 "PENNY" -The Pit Bull  Dog Portrait
 I know what you're thinking...this is NOT beach related, however, painting is what I do and this is for some very special friends of mine. Alot of us beach-lovers are dog-lovers, too!  I also, take orders to paint dog portraits, so please, e-mail me  or notify me on Facebook if you want more info!!!...but this one will be a Christmas gift.  Their Pit Bull's name is Penny.  She is very gentle and mild, but obssessed with her tennis ball.  It is rare to ever see her without it in her mouth...and when it is, it is because she has rolled it to your feet to throw for her to catch!! I hope they love it, as much as I do!

Beach Shoes to wear Shelling

I design Keds shoes for my Zazzle store, using my original oil paintings. These wonderfully comfortable canvas slip-ons are great for a walk on the beach, and because of their rubber sole are safe to wear on a boat, a deck...or wear them anytime show everyone your love of the ocean! 
The painting titled Hydra-Zen (Hydra "water" - Zen "calming" ) was placed onto this shoe.  It is my favorite because of the painted water & reflections, and also because of the browns, blues and aqua sea glass colors.

Making Waves..... Beach Designs!

I am an artist that paints on canvas....oil paintings, mostly. Selling my art in various art galleries has always been a dream come true for me, however, the past few years my creativity took an additional path. I hand-paint designs onto canvas handbags... Clutch bags, totes, resort-style beachbags, and I even expanded into painting pillows, silk scarves and woman's clothing!

I guess you could say that most of my paintings have something to do with the beach..
The ocean. The water and it's waves and reflections, inspire me to paint. Coastal birds, children playing at the beach, sunsets, seashells, and it's sealife all find their way into my paintings.

Seaside vacation spots and cruises to the islands stir the excitement within me! My creations and accessories are unique items you would find at the island destination's boutiques and fine art galleries.

Each of my designs is an original work of art! Enjoy looking at these one-of-a-kind creations, and hopefully, you will find that special piece you can't live without!
