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.

From one extreme to the other.

Yesterday’s dog was an old faithful companion, and today’s is just a little sprite of a thing. I am preparing to paint a lifesize portrait of this bundle of fur, and in the process have done several sketches and dog-a-days (see February 27th’s dog). I’ve determined my palette, and now it’s just a matter of nailing down an expression (each puppy face is so darned tender, that’s not a simple task!).

“English Shepherd Study II (Cheerio),” 4x5, dog portrait on canvasboard, $50. As with the other painting of Cheerio, I will hold onto this piece for reference until the larger portrait is done, but I will start a list, should anyone be interested. Inquiries can always come to .

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