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.

Rainbow Golden

"Rainbow Golden," 6" square, Golden Retriever portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, $249. Inquiries may always come to me.

I scanned this painting, so should have gotten a true capture of it's likeness, yet it looks a little yellow and saturated in the background to me. It didn't at first, but against the background here it's starting to look a little acid-ey yellow. In reality, the painting is rich with goldens and browns, and the face gently emerges from the background. I'll have to play with it in Photoshop and see what I can come up with.

Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you a friend, a wonderfully talented graphite artist, who consistently delights, inspires and entertains. Sheona Hamilton-Grant has a distinctive voice that is matched only by her mad skills with sharpened pieces of wood. I invite you to take a minute to hang with her on her blog and enjoy her wit and art. If you say that I sent you, she'll be extra nice (as if anything else is even an option!!).

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