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.

Dressy Bethy - Losing Her Stuffing



Details of the nearly completed painting, may I introduce you to "Dressy Bethy," 12" square, acrylics on museum quality panel, featuring a vintage Playskool Dressy Bessy doll who's a little worse for the wear (I swear Finnigan didn't do this!), $599 to the first asking nicely .

I realized that my creepy doll thing isn't so creepy after all. It's me coming to terms with my kids growing up, my Grandmother passing away, and a general longing for simpler times, when boo-boos could be fixed with a superhero bandaid and a popsicle.

In other words, the dolls are my mid-life crises.

I always thought my mid-life crises would involve a horse.

Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork,
