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.

This little dog is named Dusty, short for “Dust Bunny,” so named because that’s what she looked like as a puppy. The pressure was on, to paint as creative a painting as her name dictated.

I tried something new this time. I added a few new colors to my palette, and then reached for another couple new ones at the very end. There’s a nice variety of blues and violets in the merling, and some surprising dashes of pink among the orange bits.

“Australian Shepherd (Dusty),” 4”x6”, dog portrait on canvasboard, private collection.

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