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.

The sun was slipping in and out of cloud cover today, but after the glorious weekend, I couldn’t help but think this morning about sunbathing and doing a little bit of nothing outside. Not that I did anything about it, mind you, just some aimless thinking.

With that in mind, though, choosing the reference photo for today’s dog-a-day was simple.

The hardest part was stopping laying more paint on. This piece has had 6 hours to dry and it’s still damp!

Many layers of orange, pink and yellow make for a piece that’s dense with color and brushwork.

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