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.

Workshop: Day One

So I made it to Louisiana yesterday, despite a little last minute conspiring that got me to the airport later than I preferred (nothing like a little excitement to keep the arteries clear!). Here I am, in the land of green, and I'm not concerned in the least about the humidity because I do not have to dress in layers.
I even had naked ankles today. Shocking, I know, but I wasn't chilled in the least!
It's the little things in life!
So today's workshop was a lot of me talking. I talked and talked and talked and talked some more.
We did a segment on marketing for creatives and building a business plan. We talked about smothering our inner critics and painting with joy and abandon. We discussed our artwork as a product and severing our emotional ties. I introduced the tools that I use - both physical as well as software based.
And then I got started on a demo painting. 
And ran out of time! Drat!!
I was game to stay and paint into the wee hours (I had a captive audience!), but I didn't want to grossly abuse my gracious students' attention span. Besides, I have them for three more days. 
Thanks for following along!
