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 Valentines

"Find Grace" (above) and "Just Breathe" (below), both 14" x 17", acrylics on bristol board, both in private collections. I call these mantra paintings - I start with a simple text, scrawled in giant letters on the page, and then I begin to layer marks and doodles overtop until I can pick out shapes and forms. This process is a visual meditation exercise that keeps me centered (I also do mantra paintings with not-so-nice text underneath - it's all about working through one's emotions).

Valentines Day is a time to celebrate every facet of love. Which means I get to celebrate all of you. 

I love your connection with my artwork and creative endeavors. 

I love your commitment to your families - including 4-legged members.

I love your huge hearts and all the compassionate causes they support.

I love that I get to share my studio days with each of you, going on nearly 10 years now.

I love that so very many of you took the time to send me your get well wishes last week (seriously, thank you!).

As a token of my love, I've got some extra special Santini hybrid couple roses. Just for you.

May your day be full of warmth and love.

Thanks for following along with my artwork,
