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.

From Behind, In Process

IN PROCESS: Above, detail of one of eight equines in "From Behind," pictured in it's entirety below. This panel is 36" x 11", depicting Thoroughbred racehorses on the track, done in acrylic on a museum quality panel. Inquiries may come to me.

Above, the inspiration photo which I took at Saratoga Racetrack several summers ago (Please do not copy or create your own artwork from this photo). I'm moving horses about and have given the lead ones a bit more space to run into, which helps balance out their momentum. I'm also simplifying the background so that the focus stays in the foreground on that far left horse, right where I want it.


This is a very large (especially by Dog a Day standards) 36" wide painting.

You can see the early stages of the piece, including the fabulous Quinacridone Red Light and Ultramarine Violet underpainting, on the studio's Facebook page.

I'll continue uploading images of the painting to Facebook as it progresses. This one most likely will take a couple days to complete, given it's size and complexity. Feel free to post questions over there, and we can get a dialogue happening that other artists and fans might appreciate.

It'll be good practice for me, as I'm doing a live paint demonstration next week and haven't talked about my process out loud for a bit.

Now, off to field a few emails before returning to the easel - feel free to share this image (or any of my artwork) with your friends and family (and thank you for asking first!!),
