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.

“Where’d it go? (Dragonfly Hunting),” 8” square Vizsla portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, $180 to the first buyer. $36 from the sale of this portrait will be donated to the Vizsla Welfare Foundation. Inquiries to .


I have a client who is a Vizsla breeder (, and she regularly sends me the most delightful photos of her dogs. I’ve painted them many times, always with a smile on my face. Today’s painting is no different.

While I think the coloring might be a tad too pink (for the breed) in this painting, I do love the ripples in the water, and the looser brushwork. I can hear the sudden hush, as the dog stops her leaping and splashing, and realizes she’s lost her prey. Where’d it go?!

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