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.

Golden in the Snow (Sadie)

"Golden in the Snow (Sadie)," 8" square, commissioned golden retriever dog portrait, acrylic on board, private collection (THANK YOU!).

If you thought yesterday's Walker was a character, wait'll you meet his sister Sadie.

Sadie ruled the household for her first 3 years, entertaining the masses with her thievery. She will literally take shoes off feet, and steals napkins from laps at the dinner table.

Sadie and Walker instantly connected (of course!), and have been best friends from the second they met. They've also become partners in crime. You see, Walker opens the kitchen cabinets and pulls items out for Sadie to shred/chew/destroy. Sadie mothers and grooms Walker, and he sleeps protectively with his head resting on her.

They are quite the match.

Proceeds from the sale of Sadie's portrait will be donated to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah. I am very proud to support their efforts and help make a difference in a few animal's lives. If you mention Best Friends at the time you book your portrait, I'll donate proceeds from your painting as well. Inquiries may come to .

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