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.

"Butt....", 6" x 8", acrylic portrait of a young man and his dog, $324. Inquiries may come to me.

Another painting worked up from photos taken at a previous Dog Days of Lake Orion event. This year's Dog Day's was rained out and has been rescheduled for August 28th. Unfortunately I have a prior committment and will be unable to attend. It is always a good time, especially for me and my camera. But that doesn't mean that you can't attend and have a blast yourself - perhaps even walk away with the grand prize of Lake Orion's newest Doggy Mayor and a Painting a Dog a Day portrait!
Meanwhile, I'm on the hunt for other dog-related events that will provide me with the opportunity to shoot some references and feed me painting ideas through the coming year. Know of any in the Southeastern Michigan area? Please email me!

Of course, you also are always welcome to send your photos in for consideration, without any obligation on your part to purchase subsequent artwork. I am looking to develop paintings for upcoming exhibitions, and need muses such as:
  • dogs in or around cars/trucks (for the Sunday Driver series)
  • black cats or dark colored animals (including those with black&white markings)
  • images of animals playing together or interacting, not necessarily facing the camera
  • dogs and cats in and around barns/horses
Images can be emailed; I will acknowledge receipt of all materials. Thanks in advance!

Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
