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.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

My absolute favorite breakfast - farm fresh basil infused eggs, rosemary hash browns extra crispy, lemon waffles (not pictured, sadly, I hope they won't take it personally) and caramelized bacon - as served up by My Better Half yesterday morning.
I am blessed to have a family that knows how to spoil me. 
My Better Half and I don't usually exchange gifts on milestone days - instead, we try to do for each other. On my birthday he let me sleep in guilt free, served up an extraordinary breakfast, had the kids clean house AND do laundry (I'd been slacking on that, so it was no small task), and negotiated a bicker-free zone for one week (I know they say it takes 30 days to establish a new habit, but I'm really pulling for an exception in the next 7!!).
In keeping with the doing for others theme, every year around my birthday, I challenge my collectors and fans to do the same. Help a stranger load groceries into their trunk, leave an extra $5 at the coffee shop to buy the next person's coffee, tuck a bounty of garden produce onto a neighbor's porch, or share the best gift of all - donate blood.
Leave a comment below and tell us what you did - I'd love to hear about it, and you just might inspire someone else to reach out and do the same.
Thanks so much for sticking around yet another year!
Happy birthday to everyone!!
