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.

Today’s painting is of a saluki pup. He’s dramatically lit, with a full range of blues and violets. I love the textural contrast between the silky sheen of his profile and the fringe on that one ear, and would like to paint a similar sort of pose cropped a bit more loosely in a lifesize or larger canvas.

“Taku” is a 4x8 canvasboard, and he’s sold to returning collector Maria Cotter (thank you, again, Maria!).

Last week Maria sent me digital photos of Taku and Chumba (who you’ll get to meet tomorrow). Getting your own dog-a-day painting is just that easy!

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