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.

Blazes

"Blazes," 6" x 12", Golden Open Acrylics on canvasboard, depicting a chestnut mare, $359 to the first one asking politely. Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.

I like the action the cropping implies in this painting - the viewer gets a strong sense of the mare moving towards them. There also is a strong abstract base to the composition - squint down at her and see how the green, pink, orange, purple and white masses work together in perfect balance.

(sorry - the Kentucky Derby is creeping up, and I simply can't get horses off my mind. This is the last horse painting for this week, but all of next will be devoted to equines in celebration of the first Saturday in May.)

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