rabbit with dandelions by Mary Detwiler
pastel & colored pencil 12" x 9"
 
Rabbit among the dandelions... This has been a great year for rabbits-at least in my yard. I love seeing them. They love our yard because of the native grasses, weeds, and trees. They have plenty to eat, and lots of places to hide. I know when my Nico (mini dachshund/terrier mix) growls, it means the cat that lives across the street is stalking one of the rabbits, ready to pounce. I run out with my camera, which scares the cat away. Then if i am lucky, I get to take a few photos of the rabbits! It's a complicated world, but it works! This painting is an Original pastel painting created on Canson Mitientes pastel paper. The painting is matted in an ivory acid free mat, ready to go into a 12 x 16" frame. (frame not included) Taking commissions. Any questions, just ask.

basset hound in meadow by Mary Detwiler
9" x 12"
 
Iggin's Meadow... Basset hounds are special...and Mr. Iggins was no exception. He, like most Bassets, was very loveable, and yet very independent. He was a sportsman outdoors, a spoiled couch potato inside! Who can resist a hound? The painting is matted in an ivory acid free mat, ready to go into a 12 x 16" frame. (frame not included)

owl under forest canopy by Mary Detwiler
12" x 9"
 
We (my husband Terry & I) were in a majestic place (Felt's Preserve) at the perfect time (close to sunset) & spotted this owl watching over us from his vantage point. Soon after, we spotted the 2 owlets he was protecting on the next tree over. Soon, I will paint them...

Biography
I am a self-taught pastel artist who fell in love with drawing the moment I picked up that first crayon. I am passionate about both art and animals. Dogs, cats and nature have always been an integral part of my life and my artwork. I draw realistic animals in all types of natural backgrounds, some real, & some touching on the surreal.  My goal is to capture the dog or cats face, character and emotion, while giving the viewer a tiny glimpse of the animals' perspective through my paintings.
I enjoy painting all types of dogs & cats from the champion purebred to the mixed breed I meet at the dog park.  Every dog or cats' face has its own story to tell.My paintings have been featured on "The Today Show" with Kathy Lee & Hoda, presented by Lauren Sydney, shown at the Lancaster Museum of Art, as well as sold across the United States, Europe, and as far as Australia. 
 
I currently live in Bradenton, Florida with my family, which includes Jake, our kind, handsome, beagle,  Nico, our adorable mini dachshund/terrier mix, and Meisha, our beautiful, sometimes wild, black & white cat.
