Mason-Dixon Rescue Dogs Search Rescue Dog (Retired)
click here to return to the Search Rescue Index of Portraits From her partner: I began training Cleo when she was about 1 1/2 years old, after she had gotten pretty used to the relaxed life of being a house pet (as opposed to a working dog). I spent a very long year working with her, building her drive, convincing her to enjoy the toy so much that finding it would be enough motivation for her to search for a total stranger. I was told she would neve...

Search Dog (Retired) West Jersey K-9 SAR

Allow me to introduce Mrs. Lola. This is a recent commission for a client that will be opening a restaurant in Oklahoma City. The restaurant will be named in honor of his grandmother, Mrs. Lola and the portrait will be displayed there. I'll let you know when it's open for business!
I've been busy and have a lot of other portraits and paintings to share, but especially wanted to show you this one.

Not sure why I've been gone so long. I think I just got tired of technology (although I still check my email 500 times a day)I've been busy in the studio, got some portraits and dog paintings to show you, but today it's still life time. I love glass birds. I've picked up a couple new birds to paint, and today I painted this adorable little sitting bird.

The weather in Texas is so marvelous - it's in the 80's today. This is a small plein air pastel painting I did the other afternoon. It's pastel on velour board. It was fun, I'm going to do more pastels, I think. They are instant gratification, with very little preparation or cleaning up. FUN!
It's about 4" x 7" or so. If you're interested in adding it to your collection, it's available for $50, just contact me :)Live Creatively!Liz

So here is a post to hold them over until I get some photos up. Thanks for your patience.And, as always . ..Live Creatively!!Liz
