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.

Ready for the New Year

In addition to the paint pushing happening in the studio these days (I am so excited by the new pieces in the works!), there's a lot of soul searching going on as I examine the practices I've refined and look at how they might - or might not - get me to where I want to be.

Certain habits are simply not conducive to reaching my goals.

Like checking email first thing in the morning. Over a dozen years ago, this particular habit originated from a desire to offer great customer service and a quick response time. But what I didn't see *until now* is how email often eclipses my intended goals for the day. 

Additionally, my greatest painting energy is in the morning, and that gets lost when I sit down at the computer first thing. So why am I doing this still?!

There's so much I want to accomplish with my life, and that means buckling down and being effective, Now. Looking at my goals and cutting out those habits that distract or postpone or even interfere with progress.

Which means I will no longer be a slave to email. 

I want to learn to make cheese instead.

Thanks for your interest in my artwork,
