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.

“Lucky,” 8” square, dog portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (thank you!!). (Lucky is a retired PAWS service dog, and I will be donating proceeds from the sale of his portrait back to PAWS with a Cause.)

I inadvertently took yesterday off. I spent the day running about a zillion errands (ok, maybe it was only 12), and by the time I sat down last night to paint, I was whipped. After a little bit of procrastination involving a glass of wine and a few mouthfuls of Ben & Jerry’s, I realized I could paint the daily dog today (Saturday), sine I had committed to demonstrating all day long at a local street festival.

We set up early, at 7am, and the rain was gently falling, but the light was beautiful, the way it bounced around underneath my canopy. I started painting Lucky around 9am, and moved onto a larger horse canvas later in the day. The rain came and went, but it did not seem to keep anyone away. In addition to a full day of painting, I met all sorts of great people, got reacquainted with old friends, and shot about 100 frames of a few new muses, some of whom you will get to meet in the weeks to come.

I always come home from such events exhausted yet energized. It’s been 14 hours, and I’m bone tired, but my brain is spinning like mad. Think I’ll return to the Ben & Jerry’s and see if a little bit of an ice cream overdose will help me to settle down.

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with friends and family,
Welcome to all my new dog-a-day readers!
