Libra Izze!

Izze's not really a Libra, but I thought she'd be a great model for my newest personal project--Astrology Doggies! Years ago I got really interested in creating astrology birth charts for friends (before computers!). I'm really intrigued by all of the symbolism and mythology surrounding the astrological signs and it provides great visual material for art.

Boundary Waters

I just finished this painting a week or so ago. Boundary Waters is an area between Minnesota and Ontario that is packed with beautiful wolves. Since I lived for about 5 years in Marquette, Michigan, which is also on Lake Superior, painting this background gave me a great feeling. I love Lake Superior and I really love wolves!
