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.

I’ve spent all of today surrounded by dog-a-day paintings and other project ephemera, getting ready for Orion Oaks Elementary School Fine Arts Night. I’ll be taking about 3 dozen of my favorite dog-a-day paintings over to the school, where I will get to take over a classroom, and lead about 300 children (during the course of the evening – not all at once, thank goodness!) in quick lessons on making their own little dog portraits. We’ll be working in oil pastels on card stock, but the general idea will be the same. This is always one of my favorite nights of the year.

But I did take a quick break from all the organization to do a study of another PAWs dog, this one a puppy in training. Now almost 2, Sirius was released by PAWS and is now a “keeper,” meaning a very well mannered and terribly loved family pet.

“In Training (Sirius),” 6x8, dog portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (Thank you!). As is my policy, 20% of the sale of this painting will be donated to PAWs with a Cause.

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