I have been given the gift of "artist".

My purpose is to use that gift to help others, and it is my hope that in some small way the paintings I create will make someone somewhere smile when they most need to experience a little joy.

My vision is to build a better world.

My mission is to donate a portion of art sales to charities that help children or animals in need. My focus is on helping (1) children with cancer, and (2) homeless pets. You will see mostly paintings for animal charities here on the blog. You can see some, but not all, of the larger paintings to benefit children at TXsauce Studio Gallery [ ].


I have added the sixth art card to the Stalking Cat series. This one is called "Cat in Oil" simply because it is the only one of this series to be painted with oil paints.
