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.

It’s Friday and the sun is shining, both which influenced my choice of dog today. He had to be laughing.

So here is Cooper, one of my father’s brittany’s, and a favorite model of mine. Cooper’s mask stretches right down to his muzzle, which always leads to nice violets and pinks in that area. And his wide blaze frames that backlit profile nicely.

I’m always looking for new models to star in dog-a-day paintings. Digital photos can come to me ( There’s a lot of events on my calendar in the coming months, and I was planning out entries this morning. I’ve had 3 dog-a-day paintings juried into various exhibitions already this year - I would love to showcase your dog in such a fashion! Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions at all.

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