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.

Garden Muses


"Garden Muses," 6" x 12", commissioned double portrait of water spaniels, done in acrylics on museum quality panel, private collection (with many thanks!).

I couldn't get to the easel quickly enough today - there's something about the call of an unfinished painting that lures me into the studio with a powerful pull.

The majority of today's work was done with Augie and Luna's references tucked away. Instead, I imagined them in front of me, the kiss of sunlight on their muzzles, the hum of crickets and peepers in the background.

I've sent this image off to my client and am hoping she's doing cartwheels about now.

Have a fabulous evening!

"Little Spider," a 6" square portrait from last year's Derby Week, currently available to purchase via Mackinac's Little Gallery. Inquiries here.
Derby Week!

Hard to believe that the first Saturday in May is nearly upon us - who's your Derby favorite?

As is tradition in the studio, I shift my focus during Derby Week to equines. Next week, all week, I'll paint only horses - not just racehorses, but mustangs, foals, and horses of a different color (or two).

You can expect the dogs to return to these parts on May 7th.

Meanwhile, rider's up!!
