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.

Last night I was invited to participate in Orion Oaks Elementary School Fine Arts Night here in Lake Orion, Michigan. This is an event that parent volunteers put together every year, as a means to supplement the arts education their school offers. About 16 classrooms were filled with a variety of visual artists (potters, painters, draftsman, mosaicists, etc), musicians, dancers, and storytellers, and the students also filled the hallways, gym and cafeteria with their own art show. Creativity truly abounds on this night.

In years prior I had done a live paint on a 4’ long canvas, I gave color mixing lessons, and last year I did “quick-draw” sketches. This year I thought I would showcase the dog-a-day project, and set up a display highlighting the little paintings. I also had more dog-a-day samples, card stock and oil pastels on the classroom tables, along with a stash of my reference photos, and led small groups of children in drawing lessons. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and I came home inspired and motivated.

Thanks as always, for looking.
And for sharing this blog with your friends and family.

Stay turned for Derby Week come Monday!

Have a great weekend!
