Julian Onderdonkey


Jules the donkey is named after Julian Onderdonk, a famous Texas landscape painter. I am working on a series of paintings of donkeys and burros. They can be seen on my Etsy site. Click here to purchase Jules and other paintings.



We had a terrific opportunity to enjoy the company of a Texas roadrunner recently. Our friend, Bruce Deuley, from Comfort, in the Texas hill country, brought Buzzy an orphaned roadrunner out to spend the week end with us. We watched him as he learned to catch grasshoppers for the first time. I had plenty of time to bond with him and paint this picture! He has now been released back into the wild. I have an 11X14 ” limited edition print of this watercolor painting available through my Etsy web-site. I am donating 50% of my profits of this sale to Last Chance Forever.org. This bird sanctuary rescues and rehabilitates birds of prey, not roadrunners, but their work impacts the environment for all creatures, including  us. Click here to purchase my painting of Buzzy!!!!

I just started doing pet portrait commissions. My subjects include all animals. My oil paintings are realistic, but I love to do fun sketches, too.
