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.

"Tortie Kitten," 4x5, tortoiseshell kitten portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, $105. $21 from the purchase of this painting will go to the Oakland Pet Fund ( - you can read more about their mission to eliminate euthanasia from Oakland County shelters by 2010 at their website. I am proud to support their efforts through the Painting a Dog a Day project - inquiries about purchasing this piece may come to me at .

This is a Spice Girl kitty. Her mother was picked up as a stray along with a litter of kittens, and when we were at the shelter last week, there were 3 babies left and momma. Each kitten was named after a spice, and I cannot remember if this one was Ginger or Clove. But I loved her markings, and how one side of her face was markedly lighter and oranger than the other.

And I promised you a bonus painting, too, as this week was a short one (at least for me). Hence the brindled sharpei mix,a tender size at 4x6. This little guy, too, came from the Oakland Pet Adoption Center, so purchasing his painting sale will result in a donation to the Oakland Pet Fund. His control number is 225985. Again, inquiries may come to me at .

I will be happy to combine shipping costs on multiple paintings. There are many dog-a-day pieces available for purchase - search the blog ( using the keyword "available" (search option is the white rectangle box in the upper left corner inside the top header bar) to see what I have in stock. I also have a number of gallery stretched canvases available for purchase - these can be viewed on my main website, .

And just last night I published the Winter 2007 edition of the studio newsletter on my main website. You can view it at .
