JD Dog 4 letterhead
This painting is referred to simply as J.D.’s Dog because he never told me what the name of his dog was! While working away from my family doing construction work on a project down in Santa Rosa, my boss was busy studying plans every free moment, so I had nothing to do. As an experiment, I loaded up materials from my studio and hit the road. Discussing this with my friend J.D., he suggested I paint him a picture of his dog who had recently died. Turned out fine!


Pride of the Past: participating in the healing of the V.V. Moving Wall
Vietnam Veterans Moving Wall Event Weaverville, CA (composite of seven photographs) This is the ONLY picture like this due to the fact that it was created of a merging of numerous photos. This visit of the Traveling Vietnam Veterans Moving Wall took place for four days around July 4th in 2003. The composite was a challenge which took over three days to completely finish. 


Official USPS National Postmark printed in the USPS National Postmark catalog was available as a Postmaster Hand-Stamp on July 4, 2003

Rushmore Roundup Series (17)
This painting marathon to all the paintings before Friday’s 8 am Deadline began for me at 4 am Tuesday morning, lasting until the last painting was completed, ending at 5:30 pm Thursday evening. My youngest son was distracting me, perhaps the reason I looked so tired in this photo!

Series of 17 original paintings commissioned for Premiere Trophy Category “Placement Awards.” Permission granted for the “first time ever done” awards was provided by National Kennel Club of America, USA Dog Show overseers.
