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.

Lilli, as a pup & all growed up



FROM THE TOP: "Lilly as a Pup," and "Lilly (Havanese Study)," both 4" x 6", commissioned Havanese dog portraits (THANK YOU!). My client gets her pick of one, and the first to ask nicely can have the other ($199 plus s&h). Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.

BOTH SOLD.

I am starting to understand my Golden Open Acrylics a bit more, and with that comes an increased comfort zone in brushwork and color. I ended up swapping out the open Titanium White for my Heavy Body white which seems more opaque - perhaps that led to the density or darker colors I achieved in these two portraits (last week was very pastel, which isn't altogether a bad thing, but different than how I normally paint).

I have some cat portraits lined up for the remainder of this week, another installment in my Sunday Drivers series of paintings (dogs in cars), and am working on choosing a photograph for the next Virtual pARTy (which will either happen this Wed through Sat or next week's Wed through Sat). I've also got a couple paintings in process that I may try to pick away at. Busy times in the studio.

But always fun and games.

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