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’m often asked where I find my models. Honestly, I see them every day, getting walked around town, playing at the Bark Park, patiently waiting in a car. I also try to go to various dog-friendly events, especially in the warmer months. Having a digital camera on hand makes it a lot easier when I do spy a potential muse….. although I have been caught without my camera and in desperation slipped a business card underneath someone’s windshield wipers.

Today’s dog is Kermit, a terrier mix I met at an adoption fair last summer. I snapped probably 2 dozen pictures of his precocious face. His wirey little body and moustache seemed very humorous. He had a lot of spunk – you’ll see another version of Kermit next week, introducing himself to a great dane. I’m certain the real Kermit has wormed his way into someone special’s heart.

Meanwhile, the painted version is a 4x6 canvasboard, and can be yours for $50 (that’s a lot less expensive than the real thing, and easier to clean up after, too!). Inquiries to .

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