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.

I took a long walk this morning, which, being abnormally thin-blooded, is something I don’t regularly do when the temps plummet. But the snow was falling steadily, and with several fresh inches beckoning through the studio window, I could resist no longer. I chased snowflakes with the dog, and worked up a sweat (and an appetitie) shoveling. I returned to the studio with the crunch of snow ringing in my ears, a renewed sense of purpose, and a big gooey brownie.

And then I painted a beagle.

Yes, I know, one doesn’t normally associate beagles with calmness and silence.

But just take a peek at her, and you’ll see why this particular reference spoke to me this morning. She’s poised and carries a beautiful glow about her.

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