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.

Learning by Doing

Pictured above are a few of the paintings I've completed as coursework this week in Lynn Whipple's Big Bold Blooms Wild Painting online workshop. For reference, the larger piece on the ground is 24" x 30". I'm working big, and bold, and a little wild!

I learn so much when I take classes from other artists. Besides the obvious content, I get to see how others' teach and how they structure their lessons. And then I get to continue to learn by practicing the lessons on my own, inserting my own ideas and agenda, and determining which processes are keepers.

I really need to reel myself in, though, this time around. I am so inspired by Lynn and the exercises (working with neutrals and layered drawings), my brain is going on fast forward, piecing together all sort of possibilities. I couldn't even sleep last night (yes, I know I am OCD).

In between all of the above, I did some complete some serious work on a commission. But I also need to buckle down and work on another commission before I let myself see tomorrow's lesson. (oh, and if you want to join us, please do - info is here - Big Bold Blooms Wild Painting)

Thanks for following along with my artwork,
