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.

A Natty Sketch

"Natty," a sketch done in paint on an 8" x 10" paper, image roughly 5" x 4", acrylics on artists' multimedia artboard, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may always come to me.

Natty is so darned handsome! He's of mixed parentage, being Siberian Husky, wolf and German Shepherd, and is the apple of his owner's eye. 

I've been picking slowly at the finishing touches for the big painting I started last week, and have blocked in 2 other pieces. Tis the season to be sending larger work (which for me is larger than 11"x14") to galleries as they begin to gear up for their summer shows, as well as making plans for spring exhibitions and competitions. So while I'm sharing lots of sketches as of late, I've also got big 'uns taking turns on the easel.

I'm excited to share them with you - soon!!

Thanks, as always, for sharing my art with your friends and family,

I walk through setting up a palette with a limited range of colors and some basic color mixing, before starting to lay paint down onto a panel and discussing my approach in greater detail.


Tomorrow I will be travelling to Brighton (Michigan) as a guest of the Brighton Art Guild. I'll do a live paint demonstration (subject matter still to be determined) and talk a little about my process and being a working artist.

I especially enjoy getting out of the studio and sharing my ideas with like minds. There's nothing like talking shop with a bunch of color-holics to get me all riled up to come back into the studio and get to work.

Contact me if you are interested in setting something up for your own creatives group.
