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.

Meet Churchill, an especially endearing malamute who excels at sneaking food off countertops and letting himself out. Now, if he could just learn to close the door behind himself….

In this painting, I blocked in the basic shapes and then blended the wet paint with a drybrush. I built several layers of translucent glaze up this way, finally going in overtop with the sharper edges of his eyes, which also carry the densest spots of color.

“Churchill,” 6x8, acrylic on canvasboard. SOLD.

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