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.

Thistle

"Thistle," 24" x 24" x 2", acrylics on birch panel, featuring an inquisitive hedgehog. The image is entirely painted/wrapped around the edges, so there is no need to frame. This is another painting that would be fabulous in a playroom or nursery. Or really, any space where lots of smiling happens.

Thistle is available for purchase (I accept credit cards and can structure a payment plan - just ask!). She's $1999, which includes complimentary shipping and handling inside the US. Inquiries may always come to me.

Tomorrow The Princess and I leave for her dance team's Nationals. I'm packing a sketchbook and plan to sketch while away. Not sure that I'll have the time to blog daily, but I will post the images to the studio's Facebook page - they will be available for purchase, all for under $99 each. So stay tuned to Facebook if you are looking to snag an original piece of art for a great price!

Rosalie

"Rosalie," from The Dryad Series, 18" x 24", acrylics on panel. Yes, another Princess inspired piece, this time with her snugged in amongst English Roses. 

Wouldn't this be fabulous in a little girl's bedroom or nursery?

The painting is available for purchase (I accept credit cards and can structure a payment plan - just ask!). She's $499, which includes complimentary shipping and handling inside the US. Inquiries may always come to me.

Lots of things happening in the coming days - I'm trying to keep my head above water, and so far managing "pretty ok" (as The Man Child is fond of saying).

Iris, Finished

"Iris," from The Dryad Series, 24" x 30", acrylics on panel. This one is a portrait of The Princess, emerging from a mass of iris. This painting is available for purchase (I accept credit cards and can structure a payment plan - just ask!) for $799, which includes shipping and handling inside the US. Inquiries may always come to me.

The Princess looks quite a bit like I did at her age (although she's got way more confidence than I'll ever muster!), and combining her likeness with iris, a flower I associate with some of my happiest childhood memories, turned this one into almost a double portrait. Her and I.

We make a good team, even if she is a know it all hormonal teenager and I'm a crabby middle aged old lady. In life and in the studio!

Squeaker, in process



IN PROCESS, ABOVE the full painting, BELOW, a detail: "Squeaker," 48" x 48" x 3/4", acrylics on cradeled panel (with image painted to wrap around the sides, so no need to frame), featuring a mouse on steroids (Squeaker is 24" tall!!!) with an explosion of blooms. Squeaker is available and may be purchased or placed on layaway prior to the piece's completion. He is $8999, which includes shipping and handling inside the US. Inquiries may always come to me.

I started this one late Thursday evening, and have been painting away ever since. The flowers became therapy once I heard of the Orlando tragedy. Senseless and tragic and my heart hurts for what our world has become.

Wisteria, Finished

FINISHED: "Wisteria," 24" x 30", acrylics on panel, featuring a harlequin bunny with her wisteria crown. Wisteria has a new home with a long time collector, for which I am very grateful. I'm happy to paint more rabbits - inquiries may always come to me.

My wisteria bloomed over the weekend, so of course, I had to paint it. Don't you love the leaves and stems?

P(e)ony, Finished




TOP, detail, BOTTOM, full painting - "P(e)ony," 48" x 48" (yes, this little pony is larger than life!), acrylics on panel, featuring a miniature pony sprouting a tangle of pink peonies. This is my favorite painting ever to come off my brushes.

It can be yours for $8999. This includes complimentary shipping inside the US. Also, as with all my work, payment plans are an option, and I accept credit cards through Paypal. Inquiries may always come to me.

I have never painted with such intensity as with P(e)ony. These animal+florals are carrying me into brand new territory, and as I make wonderful discoveries with each one, I'm realizing that all my previously separate veins of creating are melding together into one cohesive and unique style.

I am evolving!

P(e)ony

(please excuse the glare - this one is tough to photograph because of it's size and the gloomy day) IN PROCESS: "P(e)ony," 48" x 48" (yes, this little pony is larger than life!), acrylics on panel, featuring a lavender pony sprouting a tangle of pink peonies. This one can be yours for $8999, including complimentary shipping inside the US (also, as with all my work, payment plans are an option). And yes, if you love her now, you can pre-purchase - inquiries may come to me.

So my peonies aren't blooming yet, but my neighbor's are. I texted her one evening at dusk - "will you call the police if I come over in my jammies and steal some of your flowers?" Thankfully she said no, and told me to cut as many as I needed. I have the best friends!! (and the studio smells so lovely!)

Also, one rainy afternoon last week I may have been spotted picking wildflowers from a roadside ditch. Anything for art, right?!

Arctic Roses

"Arctic Roses," 24" x 30", acrylics on panel, featuring a howling white wolf amid a mass of ivory tea roses. This painting is another stunner - I struggled so hard to keep all the color soft and nuanced, and it was super hard (for me!). This one can be yours for $599, including complimentary shipping inside the US (also, as with all my work, payment plans are an option). Inquiries may come to me.

If you follow me on Facebook, you've gotten peeks at some of the other critters in the studio, including a ginormous rhinocerous.

Pinwheel

"Pinwheel," 24" x 24" x 2, with painting wrapped around the edges (no need to frame) starring a baby zebra and a mess of candy-striped petunias (which were amazingly fun to paint!). This painting is absolutely stunning in person - I want to have you all over to see the scope and scale of what I've been creating!! Pinwheel can be yours for $2999, including complimentary shipping inside the US (and this is a heavy birch panel) (also, as with all my work, payment plans are an option). Inquiries may come to me.

It's a veritable zoo in the studio. And I'm not talking about my mess or the kids!

White Lilacs

"White Lilacs," 24" x 30", featuring Lily (one of The Princess's bunnies from years back), sporting a crown of ivory blooms. This painting is $599 (and, as with all my work, payment plans are an option). Inquiries may come to me.

SOLD (thank you very much!)

After the wild acclaim over the first Lilac, I decided I needed to paint another variation on the same theme. They are similar, and yet uniquely original.
