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.

Stephen's Bouquet

"Stephen's Bouquet," 24" x 36", acrylics on panel, depicting a dark thoroughbred with a crown of blooms. This one is available via auction - but hold one - there's a story here - please keep reading. 

Stephen is 4. He is the nephew of a good friend. Last week, Stephen was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. His family has rallied around him, making the best of things in one of the darkest of times.

I was asked to create a painting that could help raise money for Stephen's medical bills. I am honored to do so. Stephen has a dark Thoroughbred and the flowers crowning the horse were chosen to tell his story and send a message of love and support to his immediate circle.

Aster - patience
Chamomile - energy in adversity
Cranberry - cure for heartache
Edelweiss - noble courage
Ginger - strength
Pansy - think of me
Peony - anger
Primrose - childhood
Sage - good health and long life
Snowdrop - consolation and hope

"Stephen's Bouquet" will be auctioned via Every cent of the purchase price will go into his GoFundMe account, established to assist his family with medical costs, lost wages and other needs.

For those wanting to donate directly in lieu of bidding, or to send prayers/karma/jujubes/warm thoughts, may you be rewarded 1000 times over.

Thanks for following along with my artwork,
