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.

Welcome to May 2007 Shelter Rescue Week

Before getting to work on today’s painting, I thought I would share a quick note explaining how this week will work.

Beginning this month, the Painting a Dog a Day project will include one week dedicated to adoptable animals from Michigan shelters and rescues. The first full week of each month will include my daily paintings as always, but the subjects will have originated from various shelters or rescue leagues. Proceeds from the painting sales this week will be returned to the host shelters and rescues.

Additionally, during the month a shelter or rescue is featured, families having adopted previously from that shelter or rescue and commissioning their own dog-a-day painting will accrue another donation to their respective shelter or rescue.

Organizations participating in May 2007 are the Friends of Michigan Animal Rescue in Bellevue, the 2nd Chances Pit Bull Rescue in Ingham County, the Rochester branch of the Michigan Humane Society, and the Michigan Pug Rescue Network.

I also have a relationship with the South Eastern Michigan chapter of PAWS with a Cause.

If you have an animal adopted or fostered from any of the above agencies, and are interested in commissioning a dog a day painting before May 31st, 20% of your purchase will be donated to your host shelter/rescue. Please contact me for more information - .

If you know of a Michigan based shelter or rescue that might be interested in participating in the Painting a Dog a Day project, feel free to share the Painting a Dog a Day website with them ( They are also welcome to contact me for more information - .

Thanks, as always, for your readership. I am eager to get this week underway, and see what sort of a difference we may be able to make in the lives of a few less fortunate animals.
Stay tuned,
