“Zoe” Pit Bull Boxer Mix

Here is the Beautiful Zoe I created for my cousin Rebecca.

This is Pen & Ink with Acrylics on Animation Cell.

I start with a photo then I ink the drawing then I paint

on the back of the cell like you would if you were painting

on glass from front to back.

Layering the colors and textures down you

can see the different tones I used.

Here is the final piece “Zoe” 11″ x 14″ Pen & Ink with

Acrylics on Animation Cell.

Call me & we’ll create one of your little baby!

Teaching through Time Lapse Videos

I’ve created many time Lapse videos of my painting process to show you what goes into creating one of my portraits. In this vdeo I’m painting a Yorkshire Terrier named Sophie and I take you through the process of how I paint. If you have any questions about my technique or anything else please feel free to contact me.

I love to see how these portraits come to life in a matter of minutes. I think its magical don’t you?

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for watching!

Decking Our House


This is Christmas at our House. We have three trees that we put up every year.

The first one you will find in the entrance of our house and its the “Kid’s Project Tree”. My boys have done so many wonderful ornaments throughout the years at school that I wanted to showcase them by having their own little tree. I love this tree because there are pictures of the boys at every age and skill level. Plus the boys are very proud of it.

The second tree is in our kitchen and its our “Travel Tree”. Our summers are filled with road trips all over this great nation of ours and this tree has a collection of ornaments that we have bought in each of the memorable locations we’ve been. Its a great reminder of what fun we’ve had and wonder what the next summer trip will hold for us.

Our third and final tree is the biggy. I spend days on this one.

We have ornaments of when my husband and I were little, ornaments from Hallmark where I used to work, ornaments from when we got married and collected throughout Continue reading Decking Our House

Paintings for Sale

Hi Everyone. I decided to place these three large original paintings for sale exclusively on my Blog. If you are interested in purchasing them send me at email at callmaggie@yahoo.com and I will send you more photos and all the details.

“Golden Luna” is 24″x 30″ it is painted on wood board. I created the background which resembles rough leather. This Overo Paint horse has touches of Gold acrylic paint highlighting pieces of his mane and throughout the painting. I restored this old antique frame by filling in the cracks and dry brushing the details with Gold  acrylics. This photo does not do it justice. This painting is rich in color, texture and feel.

“Valentino”  is 24″ x 48″. It is a very tall  and skinny painting, perfect for a narrow wall. He is a sweet colt that will make you fall in love with him as you stare into his eyes. The negative space above this relaxed thoroughbred will capture your attention and you will draw you to him as you will want to sit with him for a while.


“Love that Pig” is 30″ square. A dynamic background sets off this sweet pink pig that you are sure to love.  There are many textures throughout this very large painting complimenting that sweet stare and big smile of this very fine Pig.

Hope you enjoy them be sure to leave a comment would love to hear what you think 🙂
