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.

Bogey, Painted Sketch

"Bogey," 6" x 8", painted sketch, Golden Open acrylics on multimedia artboard, commissioned pet portrait of a rescued Beagle, private collection (THANK YOU!).

Want one of your own? it's easy - sketches (like Bogey above) start at $29. Inquiries may always come to me.

Bogey is a rescued dog, following in the footsteps of Puddles (who I painted back when the Dog a Days were just starting), another rescue.We recently discussed on my studio Facebook page whether rescue dogs were more appreciative of their homes - what do you think?

Rescues have been on my mind as of late. Probably because I am prepping for a number of events in the coming months, all involving adoptions, rescues, and animal shelters. It breaks my heart to think of all the deserving animals residing in shelters and foster homes around the world, not to mention those scraping out a living on the streets. It's a rough world out there, and they didn't ask for this.

That's why I'm going to ask you to perform a random kindness for a homeless pet. Not everyone can afford financial contributions or even donate their time to their local shelters, and that's ok. But take a look around your home - do you have old blankets or linens? dog toys that aren't being used? catnip growing in your garden? call your shelter or find a rescue group in your area (Petfinder is a great source) and ask - you'll be surprised at how basic their needs are.

Consider it your birthday gift to me. Any takers for birthday cake?

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