Oil on gesso board (10 x 8 inches)

When I took the reference photo for this painting I thought Coco looked like she was getting an inspiration from “on high” with all the light bouncing off her fur and whiskers and her upward gaze.   In reality I’m guessing she was probably watching a fly on the wall …

Cleopatra Eyes

Oil on Panel (10 x 8 inches)

Sometimes Coco’s eyes remind me of Cleopatra when she’s in the right light. She really has that "direct look" down pat!

Mysterious Chocolates

Oil on Gallery Canvas (8 x 8 inches x 1.5 inches deep, sides painted dark brown)

It’s time for another box of chocolates …  I thought the light was hitting the chocolates in a mysterious looking way, thus the inspiration for the title of this painting.
