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.

"Sienna Maisy," 4" x 6", Shiba Inu pet portrait in acrylic on canvasboard. I believe this one is sold, but haven't yet heard back from Sienna's person. I will hold it for her, but in case she opts to pass, inquiries may come to

The glazes in this painting are very subtle and soothing, layered together, in pale apricots and light blues. I especially like Sienna's stray eyebrow lashes that hang enticingly across her eyes - they really add personality to her infectious grin. I can't help it - this painting makes me smile right back, as though Sienna was right here in front of me.

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