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.

"Billmurray," 4" square, a commissioned dog tag painting, acrylic on museum quality panel, private collection (THANK YOU!). Let me know if you want one of these done up custom with your dog's name.

And yes, I will be doing a mess of green tags for St Patty's Day, so stay tuned! It'll probably be the tail end of next week or early the following.

Don't forget the current auction going on over on Facebook - eight older paintings are looking for new homes. Bidding ends at 9pm EST. 

Hope everyone in the Midwest is holed up and safe as this newest storm moves through - grab a book and settle in if you can!

Up & Coming

Tonite, 6-8pm, grownUPs Journaling class at the Orion Art Center. Come join us for a special project focused on passion. RSVP to me.

Tomorrow, all day, The Man Child auditions for the school of music at my alma mater, Michigan State University. Send him lots of good vibes (ha!! pun intended - he's a percussionist).

Saturday, Feb 22nd, 3-9pm, live paint at theGrand Bohemian Hotel and Gallery in downtown Orlando, Florida. I'm bringing along two panels - a water dog composition and a painting of Mona and Vinnie (inspired by this photo shared last week). I'll also have the pleasure of painting alongside my bestie Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson. Please stop by to make sure we are working hard.

Monday, Feb 24th, 6-9pm, at The Craft Shack in Longwood, Florida, come learn some journaling techniques and make your own journal. Please RSVP with Debbie.

Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb 25th and 26th, I will be paling around sunny Florida with Elizabeth. We have a long checklist of activities, including painting together in her studio, visiting the Salvador Dali Museum, working on our book (yes, there has been a book in process for years and shamefully I am the holdup), planning our Artprize installation for 2013, and hanging with her family.

I return to the studio on Friday the 28th. I'll update Facebook as I can and try to post a couple times from Florida, but I may also just put my feet up and unplug. I know you'll forgive me if I do!
