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.

"Amber," 8" x 10", commissioned pet portrait of a poodle, done in acrylic on museum quality panel, private collection (THANK YOU!!). In process pics of this painting (I started it yesterday, October 2nd) are on the studio Facebook wall.

I met with Amber's Mom at a local cafe. Over breakfast we reviewed a lifetime of photos she brought along on her iPad, with her emailing them to me directly from my review. Ain't technology grand? (when it works, that is!)

It was my honor to paint such a remarkably beautiful dog for her family. I hope I did justice to her memory.

Share the Dog a Day love and forward this email to a friend - with my thanks, of course!
