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.

Sprinkler


"Sprinkler," 6" x 8", pet portrait of a mixed breed dog (spaniel-lab-daschund), acrylic on Raymar panel, not for sale. Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.

Isn't Manny (aka Baron Manfred von Richtoffen) The Cutest Thing Ever? Our paths crossed last month when I asked for rescued muses to feature in this summer's coming solo show.*** Manny's Dad sent a mess of great photos sharing the rich life he now leads - after two other family's rejected him, leaving the little guy at the shelter.

About the same time I was getting to know Manny, I got an invitation to participate in a landscape show. Regular Dog a Day readers know that I don't paint a mess of landscapes, so while I wanted to send something, it would involve creating a painting specifically for that exhibition.

So here it is, my entry for the landscape exhibition. What's next? I get the piece framed and take it to the gallery for jurying. If the juror thinks it's good enough, it gets to stay. The painting will not be for sale until the jurying is over, and then Manny's family gets first dibs (thanks, by the way, for letting me paint him!).

Let me know if you are interested in purchasing "Sprinkler," because I can always start a wait list. Nothing makes me happier than finding great homes for my paintings.

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

***I'm still looking for rescued muses. Participation involves your sharing non-flash photos and your pets' story with me for consideration. There is no obligation to purchase the resulting artwork. Paintings will be exhibited at a special show in August focused on "Happily Ever Afters." Inquiries may come to me.
