Lulu  8x8 oil on museum board

I did this painting for my friend, and fellow dog enthusiast, artist Steve Cook.
Earlier this year Steve captured a wonderful memory
in paint for me of Robi and I riding on the ferry
from Sicily to the Italian mainland.  I wanted to say thank you 
by painting his puppy Lulu for him.
I just loved this photo of her, in her 'bling' on the beach,
enjoying herself.

Green Cabin

Green Cabin  8x8 oil on board

There is a campground near my house with small cabins for rent painted
in different colors.  Most of the people that visit are Dutch, who 
find summer and fall in Burgundy quite warm.

The green one really caught my eye against the colorful leaves.

Kronenbourg Beer

Kronenbourg Beer  5 x 7 oil on museum board

There's a little cafe down the street from my house where
the locals like to hang out. I love the Kronenbourg beer sign
and see it often.
Produced in Alsace it has over 40 per cent of the market share in France!

Sports Center

Sports Center 8x8 oil on museum board

No matter where I go in the world, some things never change!

The season is here!  I hope all my stateside friends
enjoyed Thanksgiving (and football). I've just returned from
a wonderful break stateside for a family wedding.
I really enjoyed seeing everyone.
What would I do without the internet and Skype?
