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.

Untitled, from the Saratoga Series


Untitled, from the Saratoga Series, 6" x 8", acrylic on Raymar panel, depicting Thoroughbreds and their jockeys on the track at Saratoga in New York, $349 to the first one who asks nicely. I know there's a great title here, but I'll be darned if I can think of it - suggestions welcomed! Your ideas (including inquiries about commissioned projects) may come straight to me.

There's something about the pagentry and color of horse racing, which aside from the beasts themselves, is mesmerizing. I wanted to capture a sliver of that with this composition - the jockeys and their mounts became a simple excuse for daubs of color. Color is such fun.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, there sits the power of black and white. I want to share with you a portrait of that my friend and uber talented Sheona Hamilton-Grant (aka The Graphite Queen) did of Finnigan. The drawing is due to arrive any day now. I'm getting a small taste of the anticipation and excitement you all go through while waiting for your paintings to arrive home.

Stay warm and safe this weekend - this latest winter storm is missing us in Michigan, but I know it's blanketing many others in the Dog a Day famiy.
