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 couldn’t ignore the weather today – even though it was warm enough for school to be in session – it still was brutally cold.

Remember last week when I painted “Cattle (Snow) Dog,” and asked for photos of your dogs romping in the white stuff? Well, this is one of the pictures I got, gracefully submitted by a client who’s collie-mix is one of my favorites. This is the third time I’ve painted Cody, and I never tire of his asymmetrical mask and doe-like eyes.

So here’s what came off my brushes – “Snowdog I.” In this piece I concentrated my harder edges just on Cody’s face and ears, and used a dry brush to blend out all the other areas, so they appear to fade away into the snowdrift. He’s 4x8, available for $60. Please send inquiries to .

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