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.

Here is another portrait of a beautiful retriever mix. His coat is so luminous – it’s the softest golden yellow bleached as blonde as can be.

The paint is applied in thick glazes on this painting, and the direction of the brushwork adds an element of depth to the piece – it alludes to the dog’s silky fur and creates tactile interest across the surface of the painting.

Don’t forget that commissioning your own dog-a-day is pretty basic!
Review and choose a handful of photos that best represent your dog (kitties, horses, guinea pigs, bunnies – all furry things are welcome – except for hairy spiders!).
Email the photos to . Photos can be snail mailed to the studio at 346 N. Anderson, Lake Orion, MI 48362.

More information about photo selection and the entire process is available on the dog-a-day website: .

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