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.

Burgler Alarm, double dog portrait

"Burglar Alarm," 8" x 10", double dog portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!!). Inquiries may come to .

Today I was able to carve out several hours between swim lessons and grocering to do some plein air painting with oils in the back yard. I focused on a frog shaped planter bursting with hens-and-chicks in my daughter's fairy garden (You'll ruin her childhood if you spill the beans that I am responsible for the polished stones and bits of sea glass that get regularly deposited in the yard and under her pillow. Don't even think about telling her that cherished pinch of fairy dust is everyday glitter and white sand. And don't you dare tell her that I'm the one who paints the fairy footprints across various surfaces, either. Please. She'll never forgive me.....)

I so enjoyed the birdsongs and overwhelming peace that happened while I was communing with Annie's fairies and my little frog Prince Charming. And I dare to think that I might be figuring out the whole oil painting mystique, too. Not that I don't still have MUCH to learn.....

Meanwhile, I've posted the first oil painting from my June plein air class on my studio blog: .

We're off on a camping trip this weekend, so I will check in next Monday or Tuesday.
Enjoy yourselves!!
Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with your friends and family,
