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.

Today we are rolling through waves of showers and thunderstorms, but the air is warm and the front yard is ankle deep in cold mud. At the risk of cursing the thaw, I do believe spring has finally arrived in lower Michigan! Don’t fear though – I won’t entirely jinx things by packing snowpants and woolen scarves away.

Along with the promise of spring, in trots today’s dog-a-day painting, a face radiant with sunshine. This painting is layered with washes of orange and peach, coupled with exuberant brushwork.

“Murry (Wheaton Terrier Study),” 6x8, dog portrait in acrylic on canvasboard.

Murry’s painting is now part of Karin Fuller’s collection – thank you, Karin, for introducing me to Murry, and bringing his bright grin into the studio during such a gray week.

It’s easy to get your own dog-a-day painting – simply send photos to, and wait your turn. I’m always looking for tomorrow’s muse. Will it be your dog?

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