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.

Welsh P(e)ony

ABOVE, full painting, BELOW, detail: "Welsh P(e)ony," an original piece from the Florus Animalum P(e)ony series, 24" x 36", acrylics on panel, $899 + s&h to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may come to me.

There is so much lush color and intricate marks in this one - I wish you could stand in front of her with me to fully experience it. Please scroll below for a detail.

This will be absolutely fabulous in a child's room, don't you think?

The Struggle is Real


"The Struggle is Real," 16" x 16" x 2", acrylics on panel, $999 + s&h to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may come to me.

The newest from my series of selfies, this one pretty much sums up how sickened I am by the current state of affairs inside our political scene. I'm sure you can relate, regardless of party affiliations.

I spent most of today sketching and working out some new ideas. I've found a rental space that will allow me to go bigger than I ever have before.......

Endangered (Snow Leopard)


"Endangered (Snow Leopard)," 24" x 30", acrylics on panel, $699 + s&h to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may come to me.

This painting came about due to the challenge this week on DailyPaintworks - to paint a cat. I wanted to keep this piece in the same vein as the polar bear and snowshoe hare from last week, so decided on a big cat. Snow leopards are endangered, which inspired me to take advantage of the drooping tulips from last week's pieces. And I added dried roses, daisies, heather and alyssum to the mix.

Perhaps it was today's gray weather that encouraged me to bring more color into this piece, too.

Now let's find her a home - feel free to share and pass this one along!

Wolf Study


"Wolf Study," 8" x 8", acrylics on panel, $199 + s&h to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may come to me.

Working with beautiful, harmonic color today, familiarizing myself with wolves and prepping for a library class I'm teaching tomorrow and Saturday. I'll lead packs of kids in making our own covers to the classic book Call of the Wild.

Snowshoe


"Snowshoe," from the Florus Animalum series, a companion piece to last week's "Snowdrop," 24" x 30", acrylics on panel, depicting a snowshoe hare and a crown of similarly colored florals. A commentary on global warming. And a beautiful example of white not being white.

Another piece that just can't be fully appreciated on the computer screen - it will delight the lucky collector who speaks up first. "Snowshoe" is $699 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may come to me.

And yes, I can give preferential pricing to the collector who wants both Snowshoe and Snowdrop. Payment plans welcome.

Snowdrop

"Snowdrop," from the Florus Animalum series, 48" x 48", acrylics on panel, depicting a polar bear crowned with spring flowers. This piece truly has to be experienced in person to fully appreciate all the subtleties of color and design. Snowdrop is $4599 plus s&h. Inquiries may come to me.

Each of the flowers and berries in this painting were specifically chosen to tell a story about environmental change. And if you choose to not believe that global warming is happening, you have my blessing to simply enjoy Snowdrop at face value.

Celestrial


"Celestrial," 24" x 48", from the Florus Animalum series of paintings, acrylics on panel, depicting a giraffe with a cloud of flowers - ironically, all blooming types of ground cover. This one is $1499 plus s&h. Payment plans available. Inquiries may come to me.

Another adrenaline fueled painting spree - when an idea hits me, I gotta run with it. I gotta!!

Speaking of which, I have a giant panel started and a wide open evening.....

Thinking about the circle of life, endangered species, and nurturing today.

Poppy


"Poppy," 36" x 48", from the Flores Animalum series of paintings, acrylics on panel, depicting a larger than life sized golden retriever crowned with a halo of bobbing poppies. Poppy is $3599 plus s&h. Payment plans available. Inquiries may come to me.

The flowers represent the generous love and acceptance dogs give so freely. We could learn a lot from them.

I started this painting last spring, then got too scared to finish it (yes, that happens to me too! far more often than I'd like to admit). It wasn't until yesterday morning, when I was actively avoiding cleaning off my desk, that she made it back onto my easel. And it's been a painting marathon ever since.

Mari(gold)


FINISHED! "Mari(gold)," 24" x 30", acrylics on panel, depicting a golden retriever puppy sprouting a crown of marigolds - the flowers represent the years of beauty and joy a puppy brings to one's life, as well as the fragility of our time with each other. Mari's portrait is $699 plus s&h. Inquiries may come to me.

I would be remiss if I didn't properly thank Team Husar Photography for my photo reference. Knowing her love of goldens, I shared my concept of a Marigold Golden Retriever. She responded with a couple photos, of which Mari was based upon.

I have the best, most supportive team behind me!
