Western Lanscapes End of Year Holiday Cheer Ellie the Cat

A dog is a man's best friend. A cat is a man's secret confidant and collaborator. At least in my case.  My dear friend Ellie the cat has been a faithful and uber-chill, child friendly, not-too-much-in-your-face cuddly, mouse catching, rat eating, dove pouncing, early morning and every evening on the couch companion for 17 years.  She was Marissa's cat but liked me second in the family, as was fitting for a feline of her intellect and large-heartedness. She will be missed immensely.

Vertical vs Horizontal Holiday Dimensions

12x24's...24x12's.  There should be a standard in referring to the dimensions of a painting.  I'm pretty sure it's the vertical measurement first but I still see old artists and good galleries that should know better do it backwards.  Or...I'm the one who's had it backwards all along.  Anyway, I like this canvas size.  Here's a couple of new ones for your Holiday season enjoyment!?!?  Feel free to write me here in the studio with questions about painting, workshops or commissions.
