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.

Briar Rose

"Briar Rose," 24" x 48", acrylics, charcoal and ink on panel, featuring a shaggy chestnut pony and a tangle of spray roses.  Briar needs a home - she's got impeccable manners. $1499 will get her to your door (inside the US) - I guarantee that you can't find a more perfectly behaved pony for a better price! Inquiries may come to me.

I'm looking for a space that will host a solo show of my floral pieces or offer a few of them for sale. If you know of any galleries that may be interested, please let me know!

Thanks for following along with my artwork,

Whistler

"Whistler," 18" x 24" x 1-1/2", acrylics, charcoal and ink on panel (painted around the sides, too, so no need to frame), featuring a guinea pig, complete with cowlick, and a blooming mane, $1499, with complimentary shipping inside the US. Inquiries may always come to me.

Thusly titled because I can hear his little whistles and grunts. Guineas make some pretty entertaining noises!

Trouble, in process

IN PROCESS: "Trouble," 24" x 20", acrylics, charcoal and ink on panel, featuring a a kitten crowned with spray roses. On top of just being ridiculously juicy with color, this piece comes with a healthy does of personality. The painting is $599, with complimentary shipping inside the US, and will go to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may always come to me.

Warm thanks to Beth at Amazing Petals for helping me put together the perfect bouquet for this painting (and she thought brides were high maintenance!). The yellow pods (I forget what they are called) and the stabby greenery (knife something or other) were delightful to paint. And the soft greens in the spray roses..... they make me very happy.

I know this painting will do the same for a lucky collector, too.

Red Roses

"Red Roses," 24" x 30", acrylics, charcoal and ink on panel, a portrait of my first studio muse, Miah, crowned with red spray roses. Hard to believe she's been gone 8 years now..... She would have owned this look in real life. "Red Roses" is $699 and will go to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may always come to me.

Also, I have started "Briar Rose," inspired by the same bouquet of roses topping Miah's portrait. Gotta get some mileage out of these blooms before they are too faded and wilty.

Purity


"Purity," 24" x 30", acrylics, charcoal and ink on panel, featuring a unicorn crowned with white roses. Because I believe, and you should too. This painting is $699 and will go to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may always come to me.

Rhin-unculus, in process

IN PROCESS: "Rhin-unculus," 48" x 48", acrylics, charcoal and ink on panel, featuring a Momma rhino and her baby saurus. Yes, this piece is available when finished, and yes, I will accept a deposit to hold it until then. The painting, a wonderfully generous 48" square, is $4599. Inquiries may always come to me.

I see so many things to fix/adjust here, but I am forcing myself to stop and do real world stuff like laundry and running the homebound dance carpool. Because apparently the laundry has sprouted legs and is moving about the house (I suspect that the puppy has something to do with that!), and The Princess doesn't have her license (yet!).

Salvador Doggie

"Salvador Doggie (Sal)," 24" x 48", acrylics, charcoal and ink on panel, featuring my newest muse, a rescued mixed breed. Details and in process pics are on Facebook, and I think the color there is far more representative of the painting. This piece is $1499, a total deal for the giant serving of joy it will bring, and that price includes shipping inside the US (I also ship worldwide for a small fee) - inquiries may always come to me.

Sal joined our family over the weekend. He came via a rescue organization and we know nothing about his past except that whoever it was who dumped him lost out big. He's a dear rat terrier mix with the brightest eyes and a wiggle butt who goes from 100mph to stop at the sign of a lap. Or a cookie.

Didn't take him long to hit my easel, and I think his portrait sits as a great example of what I could do with your dog..... just think about it, then reach out if it's something you think you want to pursue!

Mary's Little Lamb

"Mary's Little Lamb," 24" x 20", acrylics, charcoal and ink on panel, featuring a lamb sporting a bouquet of flowers. This piece is $599, and will arrive wrapped in love and compassion. The price includes complimentary shipping inside the US (I also ship worldwide for a small fee) - inquiries may always come to me.

Similar to the painting I did in homage for those killed in Nice, France titled "Camargue Peace," the flowers here have particular meaning and were chosen specifically to honor those touched by the recent bloodshed in Rouen, France.

I can't change the ugliness in the world, but I can counter it with beauty and love.
