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.

Ok, because I went to the Tigers game yesterday with the kids, and then spent today running around like a headless chicken, I thought I would spend this evening with a glass of wine, and post views of my tent at last weekend's Dog Days event.

The Lake Orion's Dog Days party happens every August. The village shops hold sidewalk sales the week prior, and it's all capped off with a Saturday of dog-oriented events, including a blessing of the dogs, a dog parade through town, numerous contests (this year Finnigan won Best Singing Dog for his rendition of "Happy Birthday") and a collection of vendor displays around the Orion Art Center, all capped off with the crowning of the 2008 Doggie Mayor.

Since the dawn of Lake Orion's Dog Day's, I've donated a portrait to the Doggie Mayor. This year I am thrilled for the opportunity to paint Ruby - stay tuned for her painting, which will surface as a dog-a-day portrait in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, I'm off for a camping trip and some wonderful time with the family.
Enjoy your weekends!
