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.

“Orange Kitten,” 5x7, orange tabby kitten portrait in acrylic on canvasboard. Inquiries to

I am always asked if I paint cats, too. Guess it’s because of the project’s title – “Painting a Dog a Day.”

Being owned by two cats (one whom mistakenly thinks she is a dog), my answer is a resounding “Yes!”

Cats pose a special challenge because they can be terribly aloof, and almost boneless in their repose. But their eyes hold a special charm, and they will always be close to my heart.

Don’t know what I’ll do when my two (who are 18 years+) decide they’ve had enough of me. Think I’ll go pick some catnip for them right now, just so that they know how much they are loved.

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for forwarding these paintings to your friends and family.
Enjoy the weekend,

PS I also paint horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, lizards – you name it. If in doubt, just ask – .
