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.

“Fluffy,” 5x7, Maltese dog portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, private collection.

Here is what Fluffy’s young owner, Jacalyn (a budding artist herself!), had to say when I asked her to write a few words:

“Fluffy is my little friend, I love her very much. She is a Maltese….. Wherever I go she follows me. She is always there for me when I am sad….. She is not like any other dog….. Oh, and she loves to lick.”

I don’t think I could have written anything even close to that sort of a tribute!

Thank you to Jacalyn and Fluffy’s family for commissioning, this little portrait.

And thank YOU for your time in following the Painting a Dog a Day project.
