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.

Meanwhile, thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

This painting is titled “Faithful.” It’s 8x10, one of my larger dog-a-day paintings, acrylic on canvasboard, $100. Because the muse for this painting is a PAWS service dog, I will donate $25 from it’s sale to the Southeastern Michigan Chapter of PAWS with a Cause. Inquiries to .
Service dogs willingly apply themselves in so many ways. They add independence to so many lives, and gather simple joy from the knowledge of a job well done. That’s a lesson I appreciated being hammered home in the studio today.

This painting is about patience and the intensity of a dog’s gaze as he waits earnestly for his next command. I used soft color and loose, layered glazes. The deepest colors and the strongest values appear in the eyes, reinforcing them as the focal point.

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