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.

“Fraidy’s Circle,” 5x7, still life of dog tags, acrylic on canvasboard, $135 to the first buyer. Inquiries to .

When I opened the envelope containing these tags, one shiny and blue, the others all bright and silver, I saw the composition immediately. I simply had to arrange them like a flower, with the blue tag at the center, and the others posing as petals.

Of course, after I learned that Fraidy is a cat, and the other tags came from her harem of dogs, then the arrangement seemed even more fitting.

I want to try this again, with different lighting, on some other backdrops/cloths, and from different angles. With each piece I do, I see so many new possibilities.

I need more time!!

Thanks for looking!
