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.

Still In Process

This painting needs a title - help me!!

The working title is "Tussle," but I'm not such a fan of that anymore. There is more of a genial sharing happening here, and I'd like the title to reflect that. Suggestions may come to me.

By the way, this is a 12" x 16" piece, and you can see in process pics on the studio's Facebook page.

A little bit ago the manufacturer of the paints I use, Golden, challenged their artists to allocate one entire day just to painting. To turn off the phone and the computer and ignore the stack of papers on the desk and just play with paint.

Well, being the OCD control freak that I am, I cleared my calendar and actually planned for an all-day paint last week.

And ended up with a sick child at home.

For 5 days.

So I wasn't about to fall into that trap again!!

I grabbed what I could today - 6 hours at the easel - which wasn't bad considering I also had to pick my car up from the shop, run two carpools, and take one child suit shopping (prom. sigh.). And while it wasn't enough time to finish this painting (which I started in March as a demo piece), it was enough to make me feel as though I accomplished quite a bit.

I'll sign this one tomorrow, and get another onto the easel as well.

Hoping the near future allows you to schedule a day packed with the thing you love to do the most,
