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 Lab - Bandit


"Black Lab (Bandit)," 4" x 6", commissioned Labrador Retriever portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.

Bandit joined his family shortly after they had lost another dog. His mom says "Bandit's eyes reflect his soul and I truly believe he is a gift from God that we were meant to have in our lives." He joined a chocolate and yellow lab, making the multi-cultural family complete. Bandit had a health scare several years ago, followed by a long recovery, which brought the family closer.

Bandit's story makes my job that much harder - how do I paint a dog who anchors everyone together? Well, I started with honest eyes, and built it out from there.


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