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.

Feeding My Muse - Two "Sketches"



"Rainbow Fresian I" (above), "Rainbow Fresian II" (below) and the Breyer horse inspiring them, who I'm just now realizing is most likely an Andalusian. Each piece is 19" x 24" acrylics on bristol board, entirely original artwork. They will need to be framed and displayed behind glass. Available via FB auction - Click here for purchase information. 

My Muse Spoke Up......

... and she asked for the artists' equivalent of Girl Scout cookies. She wanted to play with color and line.

So I indulged her by pulling down a Breyer model horse from the top of my bookcase and having fun.

Both of these pieces started as contour drawings, then became embellished with more and more paint. It was a great exercise in less-is-more and it reminded me of the joy I have for my materials.

And then I got super excited thinking about these hanging in a horse crazy little girl's bedroom. What a perfect gift that'll get you to the top of The A List.

Each painting is being auctioned over on the studio Facebook page. Starting bid of $50, complete rules over there.

Thanks for following along with my artwork,
