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.

Today you get 2 for 1. Consider it my Labor Day gift!

First I'll give you "Spencer," a german shepherd portrait, sized 5x7. This is another commissioned pet portrait, and part of the same collection as yesterday's Peyton.

As is "Remi," the second piece, depicting a rottie-bermese mountain dog mix. At 8x16, Remi's portrait is packed with detail and actually is one painting I wouldn't mind keeping for myself. (Sorry, Spencer) But she'll get wrapped and shipped off with her brothers next week.

Those of you who perhaps have taken a life drawing class will laugh at this - but I feel like Remi is a nude stretched out with a drape and diffused lighting..... yeah, I'm a little twisted!!

Both of these portraits I started earlier this week at the Michigan State Fair demo. Once I got them home, and was able to add white to my palette, all it took was a couple of hours and they were done.

I wish all my readers a safe holiday weekend. Ours will be spent at a soccer tournament, punctuated with what promises to be a great live concert by one of our favorite local bands (yeah Radiocraft!! and, if I'm lucky, a little bit of antiqueing, too.

I'll return with the dog-a-days on Tuesday of next week, after I load the kids onto their respective buses, and then tire the dog out so much so (a long walk/bike ride, followed with some frisbe) that he can't pout and sulk too badly the remainder of the day.
See you in a few days,
and thanks, as always, for looking,
