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.

Meanwhile, thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

It also was juried into the 2007 Southwestern Michigan Portrait Exhibition, where my body of work (including 2 other dog-a-day entries) earned third place. The painting, including framing, is priced at $199. Inquiries to .
I have always been fascinated by borzois. When I first saw them in Art Deco artwork, their sinuous lines were the perfect compliment to the slender ladies that accompanied them – silly me, I thought they were the product of the artists’ imagination (there’s a sliver of my childhood for you – roughly, if it wasn’t a hunting dog, than it was a mutt!).

There’s a borzoi that I see periodically around our town. I usually stop whatever I might be doing, and watch him float by. This breed captivates me entirely.

“Borzoi Study,” 8x8, dog painting on canvasboard, This painting is not for sale – yet. I want it for an exhibition next month.

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