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.

Purpose (Terrier)

"Purpose," 8" x 16", terrier portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, $529. Inquiries may come to me.

It's gray and miserable and damp and downright yechy outside, but here in the studio, all is aglow from the light emanating from this little terrier. She has set the tone for the week - despite the weather, I, too, will step forward with purpose and get much accomplished (I'd better, as there's a lot on my plate in the coming days, and I ain't talking turkey, either).
Did you remember the painting I am auctioning off for Best Friends Animal Sanctuary? It is an octo-portrait of the pit bull Theresa who you might have met via last week's television episode of Dog Town. The painting is on ebay, and the sale ends tonite. Please please please share this ebay link with any animal lovers you know!
One of my goals is to work on improving my writing and earn the opportunity to be published. I've already had one article picked up by a magazine and I've got drafts of others going. Meanwhile, when my friend and fellow artist Linda Shantz asked if I would be a guess blogger on her Equine and Animal Art blog, I jumped at the chance. My entry ran today, and you can read it here; I hope that it will start a good dialogue about commitment and discipline, and maybe even fear.
Ok, back to the easel. Have a Brittany Spaniel taking shape - I'll share him tomorrow!
Thanks for following my daily pet paintings,
See you later,
