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.

Bathtime (Harrison's Reflection)

In Process views are on the studio Facebook page

"Bathtime (Harrison's Reflection), from the Saratoga Series, " 5" x 7", done in Golden Open Acrylics on ampersand gessobord. This original painting can be added to your collection for $289 - just ask me how!


It seems like photographer Juliet Harrison's imagery has always turned me on. I have several of her silver gelatin prints in the studio and scattered throughout my house, and that has nothing to do with the fact that she is also a cherished friend.

The way she sees the world through her viewfinder is brilliant - and usually causes me to do a double take and look again. I mean really look. 

And when I shot the reference for this painting, she happened to be standing alongside me, taking a similar one.

I'd like to say that great minds think alike, but I'm not taking any credit for this. It's all Juliet's inspiration.

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

How is it possible that 6 pounds of fur adds so much warmth and laughter to our home?

A year ago this week, we adopted a teeny tiny tabby kitten from our local shelter. It's like she's always been here.....

I just love her "sweet spot." And everything else about her.
Thanks for picking us, Mo!
