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.

Striped, Finito !!


 
 
"Striped," from the "Cherished" series. A portrait done to celebrate Mona Lisa's 2nd birthday - tuna sandwiches for all!! This is 12" x 16", acrylics on a museum quality panel, and $629. Inquiries may come to me.
 

(Mona's first birthday portrait, "You Are My Sunshine," ishere. Her "official" kitten portrait, "Tiny Kitten, Big Dreams," is here.)

 
There are many, many, many, many in process views of "Striped" on the studio's Facebook page. This painting was a bear to finish - taking me 4 days instead of the usual one. But I wasn't going to give up!

 
It's a great feeling, to look a demon in the face and tame it. Even if it does take 4 times longer than usual!!

 
I suppose if everything in life was easy, we would have no adventures.

 
Thanks for adventuring along with me!!


"hmmm, who would I gift a portrait to? perhaps the answer will be clearer after a nap....."

 
Christmas in July!!

 
Later this week, I'll reveal the details of my Christmas in July promotion.
 

But in the meanwhile, your homework assignment is to think about if you were gifting a commissioned portrait, who might you gift it to.
 

Ok? Now back to your regularly scheduled program!!
