The 2015 Labrador Retriever calendar is here! This year I have selected a collection of my favorite paintings from the past year to be featured each month. This years calendar has been created in memory of my late yellow Labrador, Lucy who we lost to Lymphoma last year. My very last watercolor of her “Seas Are Calm” is the 2015 calendar cover.
Every year, I donate a portion of the calendar profits to a Labrador Rescue group. I have chosen this year’s donation recipient Save A Lab Labrador Retriever Rescue that helps Labs in the Southeast and the Northeast regions of the United States.
The calendar is now available for pre order with calendars to begin shipping in late September. Quantities are limited. To Purchase

Sunkist 10″ square watercolor framed to 24″ square driftwood frame
Spin Cycle 12″x16″ watercolor framed to 24″x30″ driftwood frame
Continuing with my water and Labrador Retriever themed works this past week, I created these new watercolor and gouache artworks on paper.
These works are framed with handcrafted frames made from salvaged driftwood collected from the salt marshes of South Carolina by artisan/craftsman Jim Lavalley from Charleston, South Carolina. His reclaimed wood company makes frames from anything from antique pianos to salvaging washed up boats. You can find his work here on his “Old Like New” etsy shop.
The weathered frames are a perfect compliment to my water dog works. They will be on display soon locally. More information to follow.
*Thank you to Erin Furman and Katie Dinning for providing refererence photos for these new works.
I honestly had long forgotten submissions that I made a year ago answering a call out to dog artists to be considered for a book on modern dog portraiture.
Hadn’t given it another thought about it again until I got some good news yesterday!
Six of my Labrador Retriever paintings are included Rockport Publishers’ new book 1,000 Dog Portraits by Robynne Raye!
1,000 Dog Portraits showcases a compilation of quirky, fun, fanatical illustrations, paintings, and drawings from artists around the globe.
I am thrilled to be included and I can’t wait to get my hands on my copy.
The book is available for pre-order if you are a collector of dog related books like I am.
