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.

"Ragamuffin," 6x12, terrier mixed breed pet portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, $135. This painting will go to the first interested buyer - please send all inquiries to .

For those of you who may be joining us sort of "in process," we are in the midst of September's Shelter & Rescue Week, featuring animals from the Oakland Pet Adoption Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan. 20% of the sale of this week's paintings will go to their Oakland Pet Fund, established to help reach their goal of becoming a no-kill shelter by 2010. Additional information on the adoption center can be found online at (and there is a link from there where you can view adoptable animals). Additional information on the Fund can be found at

This little dog couldn't have been more than 8-10 pounds and most of that was cowlicks and bedhead. When I visited they were cleaning the kennels, and he peered inquisitively out from the crack of his open gate. The morning sun streamed in down the corridor, tickling the edges of his fur, and I was hooked (as if those eyes weren't already enough!).

Best of all, a bright purple sheet attached to his crate proclaimed "ADOPTED."

Thank you to new collector Wendy Royston for her purchase of Monday's "Take Me Home With You", along with a handful of older dog a day portraits.

And thanks also are due to returning collector Mary Hobbs, who has added another feline painting to her burgeoning collection with the addition of yesterday's "Love Me."

The sale of "Ragamuffin" will put our year to date shelter earnings over $900!! I'm very proud of that!!

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