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.

Authenticity, Part II

At this stage, anything's possible...... a view from behing my easel, all set up and ready for this afternoon's painting session.

Let me start of with a warm and sincere "thank you" to those who emailed and messaged their support afteryesterday's little confession.

I am the poster child for rabid optimism. Which means that this dilemma seems impossible for me to wrap my head around and embrace.

What? no glittery rainbow? no dancing unicorns?

Nope. At least not today.

Some of the most profound discoveries come from difficult places. That doesn't mean I have to like it or even pretend it isn't happening, that I'm in an uncomfortable spot and not sure how to move on.

Apparently the plight of being lost in the creative wilderness is one shared by many. It surprises me there isn't a wild party happening in here, but maybe I've not wandered about for long enough.....

Let me go on record - I assure you I'm not packing up my brushes. Nor will I make any sort of hasty retreat. Or paint cows every day.

This month marks the beginning of my 7th year as a daily painter and blogger. This is a commitment that has enriched my life immeasurably, and I know it is also what will carry me through to the next phase.

So thank you AGAIN for supporting me. Warm chocolate chip cookies for everyone - I'm moving to the easel (you can follow along with the quad-portrait I'm starting this afternoon over on Facebook).
