“Custom Pet Portraits”is another area of my art work that I always return to and love it!
I have helped preserve many memories for my buyers of their “Best Friends” that are still living or have passed over the rainbow bridge.
These portraits have ranged from dogs, horses, hamsters and even fish in a bowl!
I personally developed this sharp focus pastel and prismacolor pencil technique to make my drawings come alive.
This piece is dedicated to all the four legged Family Members I am allowed to preserve through my art.

This Collie Portrait is a signed, original, pastel and prismacolor pencil drawing.
Drawn on card stock, acid free artist drawing paper.
All of my drawings are sprayed with a final professional artist protective fixative.
Size is 12"X12"
As with all of my artwork , my initials are on the front with full signature,title and date on back.
Original is for Sale.

Thank you for viewing my art.

I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.
Thanks for viewing my work
