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.

Rhode Island Red Chicken

Wow. My apologies. I went to post today's paintings to the blog, and realized I never posted yesterday's. Guess I have a touch of spring fever myself!!

"Barnyard Guard," 6" x 12" (image, 10" x 16" including frame), Rhode Island Red hen painting, acrylic on board, custom framed in a wonderful molding complimenting her coloring, $349. Inquiries may come to .


Last year I did a very large commission of hens, lifesize, lined up on a fencepost. In the course of painting them, I collected a ridiculous quantity of reference photos. Painting fowl was relatively new to me, and I hadn't realized what huge personalities and attitudes were packed into those tiny packages. I look forward to painting more chickens, ducks and turkeys in the future (yes, I have those references now too!).

This is another painting that was part of the exhibition at the Grand National Rodeo Championships in San Francisco this April.

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