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.

"Pink (from Theresa's Rainbow)," 8" square, pit bull portrait, in acrylic on canvasboard. Purchase information to follow (see below), but inquiries may come to .


I've got 8 new Theresa's Rainbow paintings completed, of which the above image is just one. I will share the paintings with you bit by bit, as I work out the logistics of how to best manage the collection. But I can honestly say I don't think I've enjoyed painting a dog this much before. But I also was able to completely immerse myself in Theresa's joy de vivre for days on end, so in the process I learned to love her as though she were my own.

Right now I can tell you that there will be 2 limited editions of 25 giclees available, identical in design, differing in size only. The giclee will include 8 square images, "Pink," Red," "Orange," "Yellow," Green," "Blue," "Indigo," and "Violet". There will be a larger giclee (image size approximately 32" x 16") and a smaller version (image size approximately 16" x 8"). I'll have pre-order information available some time next week, and will post it (along with an image of the giclee) to the Painting a Dog a Day blog.

I have also offered copyright usage of the Theresa's Rainbow paintings to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary for use on retail items which will be sold to benefit their rescue efforts. I have no information at this time as to what their plans are, but again, will share those details as they develop.

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with your friends and family.
Enjoy the weekend!

PS Don't forget that tomorrow I will have a booth at Lake Orion (Michigan's) Dog Days event. I will have my camera on hand (to shoot reference photos of your dog!), be scheduling commissioned dog-a-day portraits, and have over 100 of my original paintings available for purchase. I will be set up at the southern most end of S Anderson Street, in downtown Lake Orion, between the Orion Art Center and the Firestation. Please come by and say hello.
