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.

"Billie," and "Olive," both commissioned yorkshire terrier dog portraits, both 6" square, private collection (THANK YOU!).

In addition to stretching and priming a huge canvas (can you say larger than life mastiff?!!), I painted three pieces today - Billie and Olivia, and then another generic yorkie painting that I'll share tomorrow (it still needs some tweaking). Their little terrier faces were just perfect for this, the first day of spring. Bright, eager, laughing, full of color.

Not that it's really like that outside. But I can pretend, right?

The weatherman is predicting snow tomorrow, which really puts the kabosh on Sunday's egg hunt. How much fun is it looking for eggs in the snow?! Unless I went out there tonite and hid them all before the snow came..... All the grownups could gather around the windows with a glass of wine, while the kids romped around in their boots and snowpants looking for eggs buried in the drifts. I can see Finnigan getting into the game too, digging and chasing snowballs. Hmmm....

There isn't much that gets me out in the snow and ice. Especially after dark. But I am sorely tempted to go out tonite!!

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