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.

Service Dog Puppy Laser

"Big Shoes to Fill," 8" x 10", Paws with a Cause service dog puppy portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, $274. Proceeds from the sale of this painting will go to Paws with a Cause ( Inquiries may come to .

Today's painting had many false starts before I finally was able to match what was in my head. What do I do with the ones that don't work? I throw out the really bad paintings and others get wiped down if still wet. There is the misconception that every painting an artist does is good. On a good day, 25% of what I paint is worth keeping, or at the very least, able to be fixed during another session.

Thank you to returning collectors Sue Brooks and Ellen Gray, for their purchases of "Izod Puppy" and "Black Lab Profile (Izod)."

Thanks, as always, for sharing these paintings with your friends and family members. I really appreciate it, as does Paws with a Cause and the other shelters and rescues that the Painting a Dog a Day sales support.

Have a great weekend,
