Let a TOUGHdove send your message to the world.

We hope these TOUGHdoves give grace and good humor to you and your world.


About the Paintings and the Site: Jb paints the TOUGHdoves and the Wannabes.  They first appeared in a gallery; now they are free to fly.  Jt is the webmaster, the problem-solver/teacher.

Dove Care:  TOUGHdoves  are tough. And care goes into preparing them.  Yet, they are sensitive!  If the TOUGHdove is many-layered and includes pastel, for example,  some particles of color may fall off the dove onto the mat.  Even though fixative is applied and a spacer is placed between the image and the mat to reduce the chance of falling bits of pigment, still, bits of pigment might appear on the mat.  (If this might bother you, please consider a simpler-style dove).  Be mindful of temperature changes:  cold and hot and damp conditions, prolonged or extreme, can be harmful.  Of course, any knocking around and your dove will look knocked around.  You can always email Jb with any specific questions.  Live with your TOUGHdove !  Let your TOUGHdove move around, shed some, and maybe knock around!  It's a warrior!

Dove Resale:   We discourage resale though we know our doves are valued!
