Zeke, the beloved dog

Zeke

Zeke is an absolutely beautiful dog. I recently completed this for a client in Philadelphia. I hope she loves this as much as I enjoyed painting Zeke. Zeke passed away from cancer and he will always be very loved.

Edgar The Wild Cat

A very nice lady from Arizona found me through FaceBook and decided to hire me to do a pet portrait to give her parents as a Christmas present. She was very excited when she saw the finished piece. She said that she appreciated how I captured the hungry, menacing look in his eyes. Edgar was found as a stray and he resembles a bobcat. Edgar makes a beautiful model for a pet portrait.

Holiday Cards

I have updated my cafepress site with my original watercolor paintings, which make beautiful holiday gifts as the images on holiday cards, t-shirts, tote bags, coffee mugs, magnets and buttons. The “Reaching for Mistletoe” painting is one of the most popular images for this holiday season.

Santa Fe Cats Commission

“Adine is an extremely talented but quite humble fine artist. In her specialty area, pet portraits, she is excelled by none! Her attention to my description of my pets and her rendering of that description is amazing. I would recommend not only her pet portraits but also her other watercolor….she’s fabulous, and she’s personable and fun to deal with. Her modesty manifests in her reasonable prices.” August 14, 2007

Manx / Fluffy Cat Commissions

“Over ten years ago our beloved cats, Jody and Shena, died. My wife and I commissioned Adine to create two water color portraits of them. We gave Adine our two best photos although they were admittedly poor quality and bad lighting. Adine was able to cut through the questionable quality photos and capture the “essence” of both cats. The paintings are gorgeous. Now Jody and Shena’s presence continues to grace our lives and home thru Adine’s exquisite talent. Joe H.

As my husband just commented, we love our portraits of Jody and Shena. I would like to add that we have two leaf water color paintings and one flower water color painting by Adine that hang in our den. Everyone who sees them comments on the great use of color and shadings. Marion H.” September 2, 2007
