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.

Hello Kitty (Dexter)

"Hello Kitty," 6" square, commissioned portrait of an orange tabby cat, done in acrylic on a museum quality panel, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may come to me.

Dexter's a wonderful, cuddly cat who can't get enough of snuggling. Given that he also loves to sleep in the crook of someone's arm, this seemed like an appropriate pose for his portrait.

Psst - this painting is a birthday gift for Dexter's Dad, so if you know his family, please help us keep the secret.

Psst again - if you want to gift something as amazing as a pet portrait, shoot me a note. I'm fairly certain we can work something out!!

Now I'm off for a dance convention with The Princess this weekend, sketchbook in tow. While she's studying with a variety of dance instructors, I'll be sketching the dancers.

That's a combined 16 hours of life drawing come Sunday.

Pray for me (life drawing was never my strong suit!!) -


Big Daddy,
Bonus Painting

I've been having fun at the easel - here's a bonus painting that I did late yesterday afternoon. The sun was shining and Adele was serenading me, and I just couldn't put my brushes away (thanks to My Better Half who indulged me by cooking dinner, too!).

"Big Daddy" is a 4" x 6" museum quality panel, and you can add it to your collection for $239. There's only one Big Daddy, though, so when he's gone, he's gone.

Email me if you are interested!
