'Viggo' oil on canvas by RK Schlueter

It's such an honor to be commissioned to paint someone's pet. After having done a lot of this kind of work, I feel it's the most serious and rewarding painting I do. There is an intimacy about it that charms me. I know this relationship and it's a very beautiful thing in our lives.

'Gladiola Florets' by Theresa Oats

The petals on a gladiola I'd been painting eventually faded expect for these two florets.  I set their stem in a small vase of water then set it on my large easel.  I liked the relationship of the soft supple glowing petals against the 90 degree angles of the wood and steel easel and painted them on a 5x7 inch prepared panel.
