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.

The pressure was on. After Monday's "Ready for Her Closeup" and yesterday's "Well, Hello, Gorgeous," I felt the pressure when planning today's painting.

And it wasn't easy, but any means. This little lady gave me a run for my money.

I'm still not 100% thrilled with the results, but this was a lot to tackle in one day. High key, a nearly impossible angle, and lots of motion. Not to mention, the painting was substantially larger than those I typically try to complete in one sitting.

The above is detail of "Snowball," a 9" x 12" portrait of a Golden Retriever (it's a detail because my scanner is 8" x 11-1/2", so there is just a fringe of margin eliminated). The painting was done in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, and will be available for purchase after I make a few more adjustments and tweaks. Email me if you are interested in purchasing Miss Snowball.

Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my artwork,
