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.

Harry, terrier mix

"Harry," 5" x 7", commissioned mixed breed pet portrait, acrylic on board, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may always come to

I wish you could all hold Harry's painting in your hands, and see the layers of paint. Lots of wet-on-wet and really fun brushwork - this painting was a party!

I am especially enjoying the very nice gray I can get with ultramarine and cad red light. One of those mixtures that shifts warm-cold easily, and seems especially reactive to it's surroundings.

I've been told my domain name ( will be mine again within 24 hours. It sure will be nice to ditch webmail and get a couple pages of data up on the web. Thanks again for your patience during this transition.

And thanks, as always, for your time in looking at and sharing these paintings with your friends and family.
And a huge happy birthday to my Evan, who turns 11 today!! WAHOO!!
See you tomorrow,
