Chihuahua Party Painting

Check out this item in my Etsy shop – I just added my first dog painting. Well, I’ve painted lots of dogs on murals but never sold my pup’s sweet faces.

This one features Sazi at my other dog’s birthday party last spring. People love her tongue. I also have $12 photo prints of the painting available.×8-wood-panel-original

Mama Cuna and the Banana Yucca

I finished another stunning daylily today. This is Mama Cuna posing with my banana yucca. I love the color combo of red-purple and the green-aqua yucca leaves.

Mama Cuna and the Banana Yucca painting

Like my other paintings, this one is based on photos from my own yard. This is an 8×8 wood panel with lively acrylic paint.

Here she is in process. I hadn’t don’t the rock bed for a while. Actually, a challenging background. The yucca were fun, especially the spines!

Just a beginning

The Artwork is Cooking

Art (and Nature) from the Hartt is ramping up for business. I have been painting to begin to build inventory. I will start with daylily and succulent paintings. I plan tiles of various sizes and shapes, wooden wall art, canvas as well as some painted plant pots. There will be small goodies, as well – like knobs and light switch covers. Over the next few months, I will add some framed scenic oil paintings of the Southwest. Here are some examples of what I am working on.

Plants also available (locally for now) Tiger Kitten begonia, several colors of coleus, a variety of succulents. If you live in the Montrose, CO area and are interested – please email

I will make every effort to update weekly and let you know when the Etsy store is open! In the mean time, I have dozens of daylilies blooming every day. For plant lovers, please follow our daylily blog at I add new photos daily (or close).
