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.

Keeping Creative


This summer I've been taking art journalers on a virtual camping trip - each week we've done a new lesson together using an online classroom space. The image above is one of my journal spreads inspired by this summer's activities. 

There's 10 lessons altogether, and students can complete them at their own leisure. Enrollment is open through the end of 2014 - but as of September 8th tuition jumps from $75 to $99. More information, including enrollment details, is here.

This summer has been unusually busy, and I've travelled more miles than I usually do in one entire year. Since May I've split my days fairly evenly between home and Trafalgar (Indiana), Calahari (Ohio), Saratoga Springs (New York via Campbelville Ontario), Indianapolis (Indiana), Port Huron (Michigan), Omena (Michigan) -- and I'm not done yet. 

This Friday the kids and I take our annual end-of-summer trek to Cedar Point (Sandusky, Ohio).
 
Nearly every trip, though, has included my Art Survival Pack - a tote bag containing my ipad, my journal, a travel watercolor box, and two pencil cases of favorite pens. So even when I'm on the road, I can get my art on.
 
How do you maintain your creativity when a busy calendar gets in your way?
 
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork,
