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.

"Manic," 10" square, painting of a chocolate lab playing in water, done in acrylics on a museum quality panel, $539 to the first one asking nicely.
SALE PENDING (thank you!)

The inspiration photo for "Manic" came from those submitted for my "Cherish" paintings. Funny how last winter dogs and water were not even on my radar. And now I can't get enough of them!

This is the piece I blocked in and started on Tuesday. In process pics are on the studio's Facebook page.

There's also in process pics of another dog and water piece, "One Fish, Two Fish," which I started and completed during a four hour live painting session last night at Merge Gallery. I'll highlight "One Fish, Two Fish" in tomorrow's blog post.

Warm thanks to the staff at Merge for hosting a spectacular and inspiring night of creating, and to all the kind folks who stopped by and said hello while we played with paints. I, for one, look forward to doing it again.

Kim, who's still looking for more water dog muses - drop me a line if you know of any!
