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.

LeeLoo's New Collar


"LeeLoo's New Collar," 8" x 10", acrylic on canvasboard commissioned pet portrait of a relatively solid Pug, private collection (well, techinically I'm still waiting for my client's approval). Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.

LeeLoo was so proud of her beautiful new Coach collar, you could just see her preening and working it. I just want to give this girl a good chin scratch. Looks like she could use a nibble of something to eat, too.....

Did you notice how, between the shape of the collar and the upper edge of her skull, the composition forms a circle in the middle of the painting? All the boldest color and sharpest edges are contained in this circle, which anchors the focal point and allows the viewer's eyes to rest exactly where they are supposed to.

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