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.

Sweet Somethings

I was chatting with a friend earlier today, trying to rationalize how I might pass these pieces off as dog-a-day paintings. She set me straight quickly - "They're a chocolate break!"

CLOCKWISE, FROM UPPER LEFT: All from the "Tags, Toys & Treasures" series. "Lindt Carrots I," 4" x 5", still life depicting Lindt chocolate carrots, acrylic on canvasboard. "Cadbury Egg I," 4" x 6", still life depicting Cadbury chocolate creme egg, acrylic on canvasboard, $124, SOLD. "Tootsie Roll I," 4" x 8", still life depicting Tootsie Roll, acrylic on canvasboard. Each piece available to the first buyer. Inquiries to .

I raided my kids' Easter baskets today. Honestly, I was initially looking for a handful of Rolos, but then I actually started "seeing" what was there, and I began choosing items based on their colors and shapes. I didn't eat all of these - just one carrot fell victim. The others are tucked back into place, and noone is any the wiser.

Watch for another "Tags, Toys & Treasures" painting later tonight - it'll be in keeping with the whole "break" theme.

Thanks, as always, for looking. And for sharing these paintings with your friends and family!
Go, spoil your supper - have some chocolate!
