Radar The Weather Dog

Radar the Weather Dog was a wonderful addition to the KPRC TV Houston Weather team. After his passing in September of 2016, the station commissioned me to paint his likeness for their studio. It was an honor to do it!

Radar came from the Houston Humane Society. Adopting Radar started out as a way to promote pet adoptions on KPRC but he quickly became the star of the show. Everyone loved that fluff-ball. As a thank you to the Houston Humane society for all they do for homeless animals, I will donate 25% from the purchase of this print to HHS for the rest of 2016.

When I was in college, I was captivated by a painting at a nearby art museum: “The River Seine at Chatou” by Andre Derain. I would go and sit in front of it every week. Something about the colors…It JUST made me feel good. No matter what my mood, when I looked at it, I smiled. When I left, I felt happy. My goal as an artist is to do for others what Derain did for me...to lighten a mood and bring a smile….a pretty top-knotch way to make a living in my book!
