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.

Black Cat

Yes, I know you were regalled with equines last week, and I promised some dogs, but today belonged to cats. The sun was warm and strong, the best kind for basking, and I got to thinking that it's been nearly a year since I helped my Miah cross the bridge, so a black cat seemed to be in order.

FROM TOP: "Black Cat, Green Eyes," 6" x 8", $324 and "Glancing Sunlight," 4" x 8"; both acrylic on canvasboard, depicting a black cat in the sunlight. Inquiries may always come to me.

Both SOLD.
This is Sing-Song, who belongs to a friend of mine, who, surprise!, is another artist. "Glancing Sunlight" is my gift to Donna as a thank you for the use of her black cat photos, which translated so very nicely to paint. (There's another one which I will take on at a future date).
What else is up? Hmm. let's see....
  • I am the guest blogger on Horse Artist Carrie Lewis's painting blog this week.
  • My painting "Black" was honored with 3rd place at Dancing Horse Farm's 3rd Annual Equine Art Show opening this past weekend.
  • The Equinest featured a recap of last week's Derby Paintings on Saturday.
  • Similar to the Kentucky Derby pARTY on last Friday, Carrie Lewis and I will be launching a virtual pARTy for the Preakness - this one being open to any artists' wishing to participate. Stay tuned to The Virtual pARTy for details.
  • I've eaten close to a 1/2 pound of old Easter egg Whoppers that an unfortunate child stashed in the studio. Silly rabbit thought their candy would be safe in here?! not!
  • My son came home from today's track meet with a low grade fever, general aches and pains, and lots of snot. We're thinking this is payback for the swine flu jokes we've been cracking (and I give him HUGE kudos for running despite feeling like yech - he's a truly neat kid.)
Is that enough? If not, I'm sure I'll come up with something tomorrow.....
Until then, THANK YOU for sharing my artwork with your friends and family.
I promise a dog tomorrow,
