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.

FIfty-Two Vignettes - available via Ebay

"Fifty-Two Vignettes," 18" x 22", original painting, acrylic on gallery stretched canvas, depicting the top breeds as registered by the American Kennel Club in 2007.

This was one of my entries for the 2008 American Kennel Club-Eukanuba Poster Competition. (The design that won was delightfully clever (and sadly not mine) - a child gazing at a sky filled with dog-shaped clouds.) When I shared "Fifty-Two Vignettes" with Dog-a-Day readers last month there were a number of you who asked for the opportunity to purchase this piece when I decided to put it on the market. Well, I've decided. It needs a good home.

I'm trying something new - this painting will be auctioned off on ebay - you can see the listing at The auction will go live at 6pm PST today (November 11th, 2008) and run for 7 days. Starting price is a mere $99!!

This painting was created using over 50 portraits from the Painting a Dog a Day project. It is done on gallery stretched canvas, so the painted details wrap around the sides and there is no need to frame. AND it is remarkably larger than my typical Dog-a-Day pieces - it has bits from 52 portraits in it! Details from these portraits were collaged together and painted so as to create an entirely new original work of art.

Inquiries may come to me at My ebay seller id is turtledovedesigns. The painting is ebay item number 330285879451. Happy bidding!

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