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.

Dougall's Stick

"Dougall's Stick," a commissioned painted sketch, paper  12" x 9", image approximately 9" x 5". Done in Golden Open Acrylics on artists' multimedia panel, private collection (THANK YOU!).

Dougall got a rough start to life, but that didn't break his spirit. His Mom says "....he is a giant dog in a little body with an absolute heart of gold."

Yeah, I can see that. Quite clearly.

I bet you can, too!

Have a Dougall of your own? tell me all about him/her! I live for these sorts of stories....

(psst, sketches start at $49 and make great gifts - when was the last time you treated yourself?)

Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my paintings with your friends and family,

PAINTING WORKSHOP "Mixing Color Not Mud": Saturday, October 8th, at the Orion Art Center in Lake Orion MICHIGAN, for reservations call 248-693-4986

Sharing the Dog a Day Love

You would love my dear friend Dinah. We call her "The Cupcake Fairy," because she leaves a box of scrumptious goodies on our stoop and ding dong ditches us. She is always up to something wonderful that always results in someone feeling extra special.

Dinah works at a cafe, and she sold her employer on the idea of raising money for a local rescue group.

Last week they began collecting donations for Waggs and Wishes and invited me to hang my artwork on site (proceeds from resulting sales/commissions will be donated too!).

They are so pleased with the addition of real artwork that I've been asked to rotate work on a regular basis.

I think, though, the root of the change lies in the compassion that is now openly displayed via a wall of "pawprints" with donors' pets' names and stories.

Stop by and visit - I'll vouch for Dinah's soup. It's dee-lish.
