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.

There is something about the grizzled old face of a dearly loved dog that speaks to us all. That’s what I was hoping to emphasize with Charlotte’s portrait. I played with all the color around her eyes, and placed the foremost one directly in the center of an elongated canvas. Imagine that her chin is resting in the palm of your hand, and you can almost feel her breath on your wrist.

My most successful paintings are not just about the individual, but speak more generically to an experience we’ve all shared.

“Charlotte (Beagle Study),” 4x8, $60.


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