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.

The Gossips, Part Two

Above Step 3 and, below, the finished version of my newest painting "The Gossips" (Steps 1 and 2 were shared yesterday). This painting is 9" x12", done in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, $529. Please email if you are interested in purchasing.

I spent today wallowing in color, color, color. I slipped a detail of the cows down below, so that you can get a better peek at the layers of brushwork.

Can you see how, when taken out of context, the lower portion of the painting reads as pure abstraction? This pleases me to no end - it's one of my favorite bits about painting.

So what's next?

I've got a couple dog commissions lined up and another barnyard pair and I'd really like to also get to the Daily Paintworks Challenge. We'll see what I feel like painting tomorrow when I stand in front of the easel. Any guesses at what it'll be?

Thanks again to photographer Doug Nelson for generously sharing his reference photo! There's more cows to come, some inspired by additional shots Doug's taken, and some inspired by the cows at my local dairy farm.

Thanks for sharing my artwork with your friends and family,

Future Rock Star ????????

The Princess has been a dancing fool the last couple weeks, gearing up for 2 different recitals/performances.

Finnigan got into the act over the weekend, donning a Florence wig and belting out his own version of "Dog Days Are Over."

We tried to get Mona Lisa (the kitten) to wear the Katy Perry wig, but she was having no part of it

Which meant my Better Half ante-ed up. Although he looked a little more like Ozzy with bangs than Katy Perry.....
