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.

Allie, Terrier Portrait

"Allie," 6" x 12", commissioned Terrier dog portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!). I would love to chat about commissioning a pet portrait - all interested parties may send me an email.
I wish you could hold this painting and see it for yourself. Even though the boldest color is in Allie's mask and ears, the part that I am most in love with is the wirey fur underneath her chin and neck on the shadowed side. Oodles of glaze and lazy brushwork balance out the contrast immediately above it nicely.
I want to paint like this every day!! We'll see what tomorrow brings.....
Thanks, as always, for looking at my paintings!
