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.

"Waiting (Calico Study)," 8" x 16", calico cat portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, nicely framed in a custom molding, $649 to the first taker. Proceeds from the sale of this painting will go to her host shelter - The Oakland Pet Adoption Center ( Inquiries to .

I gravitate to calicos when I visit the shelter - just can't help myself. This little girl was so friendly and vocal - her body was quivering from the strength of her purr.

It was very rewarding to hear that a favorite cat, a very solid black and white guy with an ear lost to frostbite, one who had been at the shelter for many months, finally got adopted.

Please, if you are thinking about adding an animal to your family, consider visiting your shelter. They are overflowing with animals who just want love. Furthermore shelters can offer low-cost spay/neuter and veterinarian care to help make adopting a 4-legged family member more affordable. Your choice could very well save a little life, and make yours all the richer in the long run.

Ok, enough lecturing. What else is going on? Well, I'm editing the final draft of the studio fall newsletter - I hope to get it out early next week. is still down - the doman registry change is in process, after which I can begin rebuilding my pages in earnest. I may be able to start on those as soon as this weekend. But my email is back up (hooray!! chocolate all around!!)

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for forwarding these paintings on to your friends and family.
See you tomorrow,
