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.

Anyone who knows bull terriers, knows they are a bit like a steam engine, and this guy is no exception. I focused on his face, intentionally pulling it a bit off-center, and blurring out the edges of his body, to give the illusion of a frozen moment of high energy. The color and brushwork is concentrated entirely in that strip that makes up his profile – variations and hints of the same colors make up the background, but don’t compete for your attention.

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for continuing to share these paintings with friends and family – the Dog-a-Day family continues to grow, and I appreciate it!
Stay warm,
