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’s piece is a tribute of sorts to our faithful old companions. You know the ones. Their tails wag a bit more slowly than they used to, the hips no longer wiggling in synch. They groan a little when they scramble to their feet, but they are always willing to go for a walk. Their eyes are clouded and out of focus, yet they still follow your movements. Their chin rests a bit more heavily on your knee than before, but they find the same pleasure in a quiet ear rub.

“Old Friend (Border Collie Study),” 8” x 8”, acrylic dog portrait on canvasboard. This painting isn’t for sale - I’ve offered it to a friend in the hopes that it captures the spirit of her much loved Maggie.

And a big thank you to my father, who despite having a gazillion of my paintings already, now officially has a gazillion and one. He’s taken Cooper’s painting, the Brittany Spaniel study from last Friday, and added it to his collection.

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