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.

Runt, In Process


Detail of "Runt," in process - you can see my struggles with this little one on the studio's Facebook page. Poor "Runt" is a perfect example of not having a solid painting concept when I picked up my brushes.

That, and my palette was starting to dry out, but I still had a mess of paint laid out I didn't want to waste. So my lack of a plan was further complicated by forcing goo-ey paint to move more than it wanted to.

See? Even I have rough days and make mistakes.

After 1343 paintings.

You think I'd've learned something by now!!

I will save this painting, but after I take a break and can approach her with a fresh eye. Meanwhile, tomorrow I'm going to work on a commissioned piece. With a solid gameplan.

Thanks, as always, for supporting and following along with my artwork!


Over the weekend, The Princess and I completed a 7 foot long mural that will be inset into our home's front porch ceiling. We both are fans of Van Gogh, and his Starry, Starry Night seemed like the perfect inspiration.

And now I'm thinking that the back porch floor needs a fresh coat of paint. Irises, anyone?
