Dogs and puppies. For over thirty years we bred boarded and trained them.  And they were the inspirations for my paintings.  They simply seeped out the end of my paint brush.

But now that we have retired from the kennel business, I have found new inspiration.  I have always loved barn quilts and living in a rural area, I see them all the time. They make me smile .

However, I have felt that they are lacking something……an animal ! Thus I started my series of “Photobombing Barn Quilts”.  These pieces are painted on lightweight aluminum panels with high quality exterior paint.  They are weatherproof and can be safely hung outside – on sheds, garages, fences or other outdoor structures.  And they are meant to bring joy….
