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.

"Ginger," a commissioned pet portrait of a boxer, 9" x 18". Done in Golden Open Acrylics on an Ampersand Gessobord, Ginger will be headed to a new home shortly (THANK YOU!).

I posted some in process photos on the studio Facebook page if you are interested in seeing Ginger's progression.

Before you peek, though, see if you can guess what color the underpainting is......

I'll give you a hint - it actually factored in as the third color in my triad of orange, green and [fill in the blank]. Using a triad for the basis of the majority of the paint mixtures allows for a rich and harmonious variety of neutrals (this is something we talk about in my painting workshops! I've got another one scheduled for October......).

Meanwhile, down below is a sneak peek at some of the faces (or backsides, as the case may be) that are lining up for their turn on my easel. I've had great fun meeting new critters and taking their photos all summer long.

By the way, thanks for respecting my copyright on these photos - at this time they are only for my use. If you are interested in copying or working from some of my images, please drop me a line first so that I can share my guidelines for doing so.

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