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.

Atira & Special Exhibition Announcement



Detail from "Atira", 9" x 12", painting in process, acrylic on Ampersand Gessobord, from the "Happily Ever Afters" series, available for purchase. Inquiries may always come to me.

Atira comes from a group new to me, Hearts United for Animals, a no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization dedicated to the relief of suffering. You can learn more about them at their website.

Atira was left tied up outside a home after her family moved out. No food or water or shelter, just the companionship of another dog. She's currently waiting for a new family - I don't doubt it will take long for this sweet girl to get her "Happily Ever After."

I have been waiting a long time to share this next bit of news with you.

I have been invited to hang an exhibition of my work at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. This is the perfect celebration of the long-standing partnership between Painting a Dog a Day and animal welfare.

You are cordially invited to join me in Kanab, Utah at the unveiling of a new series of paintings, "Happily Ever Afters," of which Atira above is a part. These paintings will focus on the variety of faces encountered across the country at shelters and rescues. The artwork will be accompanied with text sharing tidbits of a rescued animals' journey. A guest book (in the form of a sketch-scrapbook) will invite viewers to share their own experiences with rescue.

But wait - it doesn't end there.

In conjunction with the exhitbition, I'll also be painting milestone Dog a Day piece #1000 on site at the sanctuary during the week the show opens (the opening reception is August 26th).

BFAS support created much momentum for the daily paintings when I was starting out. It is especially meaningful to be able to literally bring my artwork to them and spend time with an audience who loves animals even more than I do.

It would be fabulous if you could join us too!

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