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.

A cat named “Mouse.” You gotta love that. On top of the clever moniker, she’s a calico, too. How much more could she possibly have going for her?

This painting has layers of dense color – again, I worked from the bottom up. By bottom I mean the “backside” of the painting. I started with a very generic shape of her head silhouetted against the green backdrop, and gradually added smaller layers of translucent color, finishing up with the whiskers and reflections on her eyes.

“A Cat Named Mouse,” 6” square, acrylic cat portrait on canvasboard, the latest acquisition of returning client Judy Kroon. Thank you, Judy. J

Thank you also to new client Connie Ciak who purchased Friday’s yellow lab portrait.

And welcome to all the new dog-a-day readers. I hope you enjoy each painting as much as I enjoy making them.
Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with your friends and family.
Back to dogs tomorrow, I promise!
