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.

"Yoda Pug," 4" square, pug dog portrait, acrylic on board, $159. Inquiries to .

The only thing cuter than this tiny little portrait is Yoda himself, looking all spiffy in his kerchief, the folds in his forehead sorta matching the stripes in his neckwear. This painting was all done wet-in-wet, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite ways to work (that should lend itse'f well to my continuing efforts in oil paint).

Thinking of giving a dog-a-day portrait as a holiday gift? I had a client cancel 2 November slots this afternoon - send your story as to why your friend/family member/significant other deserves a dog-a-day portrait, and the best two tales (tails?!) get the dates. Stories and attachments may come to .

Thanks, as always, for your time in looking at, forwarding, and sharing my artwork with your friends and family.
See you tomorrow!

PS Over the weekend I got private emails out to everyone who had a painting included in my new book Painting a Dog a Day, the First Year. I want to make certain that all my clients have an opportunity to order their copy well in advance of the holidays. Having never published a book before, I do not know what to expect volume wise, and can therefore only guarantee holiday delivery for those orders placed by November 1st. The books are beautiful, and will make great gifts for the animal lover on your list. Softcovers are $39.95 and hardcovers are $54.95, plus shipping and handling. Please send an email to if you are interested in ordering a copy (or two).
