Wanted to share one of my pet portraits with you.  You can view lots more on my website at www.suzymoritzfineart.com.  Portraits start at $150 for an 8 x 8. I paint them from a favorite photo.  If I can, I like to meet the pet.  When I paint the pets, I actually talk to them like Dr. Doolittle.  This Boston Terrier's name is Pumba and from what his mother tells me, he can be quite a "pistol"!

Chama River in the Fall

This is such a glorious spot....the Chama River in New Mexico. The photo was taken from the famous overlook on my birthday in October a couple of years ago. Since I have many paintings from the summertime, I wanted to capture the colors of the fall. So, I recently painted this one to remind me of Georgia O'Keeffe country. I love New Mexico, Georgia O'Keeffe and this particular vista. Enjoy the view!

The Animals Came Two by Two

This mural was done for Baily and Decker Gallinet on the occasion of their birth. The twins were truly a miracle to our family and this mural is one that I took great pride in creating. It's almost time for me to change them over to sports, since they are almost 3 years old. Just wanted to share this fun part of my journey with you all.

Whose in There?

If your favorite animal is a turtle, this is "Bumpy"! He is a 6 pound turtle and the object of the CD Cover for "Whose In There" by jazz saxophone artist, David Carr, Jr. A link to David's Website is posted for your convenience. The original painting is hanging and can be purchased at Lam Lee Home, Inwood Shopping Center, Dallas, Texas. I have quite a number of paintings there, so enjoy your visit. While your perusing the store, don't forget to visit India's Corner for the most sought after gifts in town!
