Shows, Art Auctions and more!

.Hello all!  Right now I have three pieces in a wonderful show downtown at the Crossland Gallery, 500 W. Paisano, El Paso.  The show is Colors of the WILD! ROAR! and features paintings and sculptures of all kind of wild and domestic animals.  These pieces are shown above.  The show is open Tues -Fri 11-4 and Saturdays 11-3 until May 5th.  

The dog is our rescue dog Tulie, and I've painted other dog portrait commissions recently, which you can see displayed at the Crossroads Animal Hospital
