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 June 2007 Shelter & Rescue Week

It doesn’t seem possible that a month has already flown by – seems like the inaugural (May) Shelter & Rescue Week was just a few days ago.

Here’s how this week will work:

Each day this week, the Painting a Dog a Day project will profile an adoptable animal from a Michigan shelter or rescue. (This happens the first full week of each month). Proceeds from the painting sales during 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 June 2007 are the Friends of Michigan Animal Rescue in Bellevue, the 2nd Chances Pit Bull Rescue in Ingham County, and the Ingham County Animal Shelter. I also have an ongoing relationship with the South Eastern Michigan chapter of PAWS with a Cause (they will not be profiled this week, but I do donate proceeds from PAWS dog-a-day paintings back to the organization.)

If you have an animal adopted or fostered from any of the above agencies, and are interested in commissioning a dog a day painting, please contact me for more information before June 30th, so that your project will be eligible for the shelter/rescue donation program – .

And, 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. Shelter & Rescue Week is quickly becoming one of my favorites, and I am eager to share some great new faces with you. Let’s see together what sort of a difference we might be able to make in the lives of a few less fortunate animals.

Stay tuned for today’s painting,
Thanks, as always,
