Paintings With Soul

Since October 2006 I've been a daily painter, creating a new pet portrait at least 5 times per week. Over the years I've expanded my offerings to include a variety of animals, pets, race horses, children and other treasured heirlooms. In addition, I accept a limited number of commissions each year.

In 2015 I am honored to be the Kentucky Derby Artist.

You may use the links below right to receive my daily paintings via email or to follow my blog with a feed. I post additional info, including in-process jpgs and other related information, on the studio Facebook page as well.

Meanwhile, thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

Don’t you love the way black dogs just glisten in the sun? Their coats act like a mirror, reflecting all the color around them. They also are fun to paint – you approach it sort of backwards (at least for me) – blocking in the darkest shadows and color first, then going in overtop with the highlights. It’s always good to mix it up periodically!

“Black Lab Study (Will),” 5x7. This one isn’t for sale – I’m sending it to Will’s mom, who also happens to be my cousin. Enjoy him, Rachel – both the real, and the painted versions!

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with friends and family.
