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.

Dear Ole Annie


"Dear Ole Annie," 4" x 6", done in Golden Open Acrylics on a Raymar panel, commissioned portrait of a black lab. Sold - thank you very much and a warm welcome to new collector KD! (Oh, and this is a Christmas gift, so if you know Annie or KD, please keep it a secret from the rest of the Ds !!)

My assignment?

  • Using multiple photos, create a timeless portrait of an old girl, preserving her sweet and expressive face.
  • There should be reference to the full and joyful life she's led, and her loyalty and devotion to her family.
  • The painting would be intimately sized, but carry a big wallop.

I think I got it down!

Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my paintings with your friends and family,
COMING UP ~~ PAINTING WORKSHOP "Mixing Color Not Mud": Saturday, October 8th, at the Orion Art Center in Lake Orion MICHIGAN. Email me to get on the early bird list.
