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.

Rambo, Boxer Portrait

"Rambo," 8" square, commissioned Boxer dog portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!!). Inquiries on how you may commission a painting of your own pet may come to me via email.
Last week I mentioned wanting to expand my palette colors. Today I added Raw Ochre and Anthraquinone Blue to my other colors (Cad Yellow Light, Cad Yellow Dark, Ultramarine Blue, Pthalo Blue Red, Cad Red Light, Cad Red Dark, Quinacridone Red Light and Titanium White). I'll play with these newbies all week - maybe you'll see a difference in the resulting colors of my paintings.
Today's piece has a lot of Anthraquinone Blue, which is a warmer transparent color similar to Prussian Blue, but not as inky.
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my art with your friends and family,
See you tomorrow,
