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.

The National Geographic channel is airing a new series tonite. The program is called "Dog Town," and it has been filmed at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. BFAS is one of the shelters that the Painting a Dog a Day project supports - in 2007, dog-a-day sales resulted in donations of over $1100 to this shelter alone!

I have a small dog-a-day painting hanging in Dog Town. It depicts a mixed breed dog wearing a bandanna. Mr. Bones' portrait (pictured above) was commissioned by a BFAS volunteer, a woman who lives on the East Coast, but spends her vacation in southern Utah volunteering at the shelter. She asked me to paint Mr. Bones, one of Dog Town's long time residents, and send the painting to the shelter. It will go with Mr. Bones, when he finds his forever home.

If you can, try to catch the program, or set your DVR/Tevo to record it, and see what your dog-a-day dollars are doing to help animals in dire circumstances.

It's always refreshing to hear about The Good that is happening in our world, every day, by regular people, consistantly.

Take care,
