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.

Little Ray of Sunshine (Nettle)

"Little Ray of Sunshine (Nettle)," from The Gratitude Project, 5" square, portrait of a former puppy mill mama now turned a much loved and spoilt Cairn Terrier, done in Golden Open Acrylics on gessobord, possibly available (Nettle's Mom get's first dibs on the painting). Email me if you are interested.

Puppy mills are a horrible enough place to start life out, but can you imagine if that's all you knew?

Never tasting fresh water or feeling green grass under your feet. Never knowing the complete exhaustion of a long hike or the total relaxation of a hearthside nap. Not ever hearing your name spoken gently - or maybe never even having one.

Nettle didn't ask for any of that, yet that was all she knew, bearing multiple litters, living in a stacked wire crate.

And now it's changed for the better.

Thanks for sharing my artwork with your friends and family,

Happy Weekend!

Whether you are watching the Preakness or rooting for your team at a soccer tournament or cheering on a Speedy Gonzales at a trackmeet or helping out at a dance recital or planting flowers in your garden or teaching journalling classes to a mess of kids or eating the first ice cream fudge sundae on the porch.

Enjoy yourself!

I sure will!
