Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I have been too busy to paint over the last few days, with the holiday and all.
However, I wanted to share a special promotion going on today only at Zazzle.
Zazzle has added lots of cool products to their line. Art Helping Animals has opened a store on the site, with royalties going to the aha charities.

Today only, Zazzle is having a special on their custom postage. $17.99 is marked down to $9.99, with free shipping, but only until midnight.
Follow the link here- Zazzle/Art Helping Animals - to find the AHA store and click on the postage link on the right.

We will be adding more products and images, so check back, but I wanted to let you know about the deal of the day.


Pretty Girl on Yupo- charity listing for Tabby's Place (click to bid)

Here's my latest daily painting. Its 5 x 7 inches on yupo board, sealed with acrylic varnish and can be framed similar to an oil or acrylic painting. Listed as a charity listing for Tabby's Place. I spent way too long working on this one.

Don't forget that many of these animal charities could use your help, if you happen to be looking for end of the year charity donations. Even if you can't adopt an animal, many animals can be sponsored while they are in foster care. One that I feel very strongly about is Old Dog Haven, as their animals often require medications that younger dogs wouldn't need.


Deja Vu- another yupo painting, same tulip

No not seeing double or anything- I decided to paint this one again.
varnished watercolor on yupo,5x7 inches


White Tulip on Yupo and my calendar is available

Mini watercolor/acrylic varnish on yupo board, 5x7 inches. Will be listed later today as a charity listing for Willing Hearts Dalmation Rescue. Click here to visit their site.
Click here to bid.
My 2007 Calendar is available at Click here
If you want an autographed one, I will put some in the art-agent gallery when they arrive.


Angelique Tulip-daily painting

I needed a break from painting whiskers and eyeballs last night! Angelique tulips are multi-petaled tulips colored with pinks, yellow, and green. This painting has abstract elements and is a mini- 5 x 7 inches on varnished yupo board. Can be framed similar to an oil or acrylic painting.


Dog Face- Yupo- Painting of the Day

I stayed up way too late working on this last night.
varnished watercolor on yupo board, 5x7 in.


Calico in the Sun- Yupo- painting of the day

Grey Tabby- painting of the day

watercolor/acrylic varnish on yupo board, 6x6 inches, SOLD
This took two evenings of daily paintings to complete- lol.
The ref pic was very dramatic with strong light on one side of the cats face, and deep shadow on the other.


Can we play now, Please?- painting of the day

I stayed up late working on this painting. One Jimmy Kimmel and a few infomercials later it was finished.
Listed as a charity listing for Tabby's Place Cat Rescue- SOLD


another pink Calla lily- painting of the day

Hi ya'll.

I call Janie Freeman the "Queen of Tomatoes" as her tomatoes painting are amazing.
I am quite happy with the way this one turned out.


Grapefruit on Blue Plate- Yupo (click here)

charity listing for Old Dog Haven.
Have a good weekend.


Lemon Slices- painting of the day

I was attracted to this image as it is shot from a different angle and the lighting is very dramatic with deep shadows.
However, I am painting it with transparent watercolor on yupo board. Yupo does interesting things as the colors bleed and seperate. You can see the detail image.


another calla lily- painting of the day

Another Calla Lily, this time a baby calla lily.
Listed as a charity item, but is immediately available to the first person. Shipping is free if purchased within 24 hours.

Calla Lily- Painting of the Day

Another charity listing for Brooke's Heartworm Treatment


Hotel Concordia Study- Casein on Paper

This is a little study I was working on last night. You'll see this image again, I'm sure.

It is painted with casein paint on paper. Casein can be thinned and painted similar to transparent watercolors, but it is a bit more opaque, like an oil paint, acrylic, or gouache.

This hotel is in Venice, Italy, and why I took this pic was because of that curely-q shadow cast from the light fixture. (My shadow is all wrong, by the way, . . . it was getting late. . .)


Via Delle Paste- Painting of the Day

This mini painting is based on my photos taken in Rome, Italy.
Listed as a charity listing for Brooke, the dog needing heartworm treatment, at True Blue Animal Rescue.


3 Pear Shadow and more of Elmo

"3 Pear Shadow" is my latest daily painting that is listed as a charity listing for TBAR, for a dog in foster care needing heartworm treatment. Click here to go to the listing.
People have also been asking about Elmo so I am including his latest "photo opportunity". His foot is healing, and hopefully he can soon go to wildlife rehabilitation. He is still on puppy formula and not interested in anything else at the moment. Maybe he'lll soon start nibbling on some apple, . . . . or pear.


Green Pear- Painting of the Day

This mini-painting is also a charity listing for True Blue Animal Rescue, and a dog that is in their foster care program.


Magnolia- painting of the day and Elmo

This is Elmo. He is a little victim of tree clearing. His rear foot is injured and I am not sure if it will heal enough to be rehabilitated or not. He is "hanging in there" for a few days to see.

Magnolia is listed as a charity listing for True Blue Animal Rescue in Texas, one of the charities sponsored by Art Helping Animals.


Manhattan Skyline- Painting of the Day

Manhattan Skyline (watercolor/acrylic, 7x5) is a little mini painted from NYC photos. It is listed within my Art-Agent Collection of Daily Paintings. Click here to view the collection. I am also in the process of moving items to the other categories, so bookmark the page if you wish.
