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.

Angi, Step III

"Angi (Leonberger Portrait)," 16" x 20", commissioned larger than lifesize Leonberger dog portrait, acrylic on Ampersand Gessoboard, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may always come to me.

Not sure what's in the water, but after several years of doing smaller paintings, this week I've booked 4 larger than life portraits The truest test is applying all I've learned from 3+ years of daily work to the larger paintings - it's a test I'm eager to ace. It's wonderful to work in this scale again, and I look forward very much to tackling the bigger paintings in the coming months.

If you are just joining us, I've been sharing the progress of Ms Angelica's larger than lifesized portrait over the past couple of days - here's Step I and Step II.

And today I would say she's pretty close to being done. I'll sit with the painting for the next couple days and tweak as things become apparent. I've also sent a jpg to my clients for their suggestions.

I am most proud of the harmonic grays in this painting, and how they pay homage to Angi's gentle expression. And I still love that right ear - just that area alone is a beautiful thing (I know I sound oddly eccentric, and I suppose that is my perogative, being an artist and all!!).
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
