Commission for a birthday gift! This adorable pitbull is Sniper, and he has the cutest, biggest grin. Watercolor, gouache and pen on paper.



Speck is a little dog with a lot of emotions. This is a surprise/birthday gift for my coworker, whose deep love of scruffy little dogs with problems is manifested in this tiny magnificent creature. I worked from reference photos secretly snapped by Speck’s dogwalker.

Lightnin’ Hopkins


A portrait of the late, great Lightnin’ Hopkins, beloved bloodhound of Rocket Dog Rescue’s founder, Pali Boucher. Pen and watercolor on paper. It was too big for my scanner so I took a not-very-good photo with my phone.
