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.

“White Cat Study,” 4” x 5”, acrylic cat painting on canvasboard, $50. Inquiries to .

The sunlight was fabulous this morning, so after I opened up the studio, I decided to paint something swimming in lighter values. This particular piece has so many subtleties to it – the glazes shift from pale yellows to pinks, with a few touches of greens and violets for good measure. The brushwork is thick – at one point I started using globs of paint to indicate the direction of the fur, and I built upon that texture further by dry-brushing additional layers overtop.

So there you have it, a simple, bright little piece for this sunny Monday.

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