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.

Audrey, Mixed Breed

"Audrey," 6" x 8", commissioned dog portrait of a mixed breed, acrylic paint on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!).
This piece is all about texture and depth, both of which were achieved by paying attention to edges. Not just the edges of the dog herself, but the edges of the plains of lights and darks, controlling their crispness or lack thereof.
I've got a number of other commissions lined up behind Audrey. Last June, when I booked portraits for this week I didn't realize that Memorial Day fell early this year. Then I slid in the Visiting Artist stint on Friday and yesterday, again not processing that this was already a 4 day work week and that we would be out of town the days in between. Somebody smack me silly - I need to work on my time management skills!!
Are you interested in booking a portrait of your own? (hah! after the prior paragraph, you're probably looking for another artist to commission - one who has a realistic idea of what can be accomplished in a 24 hour period). If I haven't scared you off altogether, please send me an email - I have a handful of Holiday 2009 slots still available. Dog-a-Day paintings make extraordinary gifts - set yours up now and then kick back and avoid the malls and holiday crowds. (It's not too early to start thinking about ordering your copy of the second Dog-a-Day book, too. Details are forthcoming.......)
Thanks as always for looking at and sharing my paintings with your friends and family,
See you tomorrow,
