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.

The Spirit Within

The Spirit Within. 16" x 20" x 1/2", acrylics on gallery wrap canvas (painted around the sides, so no need to frame), $679 plus s&h. Inquiries may come to me.

I have been trying to get this sort of surface for YEARS now, and I've finally figured it out!! At one point today I got so frustrated that I walked away, only to return after mowing the lawn to find my desired effect had occurred - it just took some time to set itself up.

The acrylic paint appears to be melted wax, marble.moves like watercolor, and scumbles like oil. Some of these effects occur simultaneously. I wish you could see it in person!

Waiting for a Kiss

Waiting for a Kiss. 12" x 12" x 1/2", acrylics on canvas, $309. Inquiries may come to me.
Aren't fairy tales the best? They were one of my favorite things to read as a child - I loved comparing similar tales from differing cultures.
I've had The Frog Prince in my head for over a week now. Finally able to get around to painting him. And I just might do it again.......

His Royal Highness and The Crown Prince

The male oriole is rumored to have a penchant for dressup.  Diptych (two panels specifically painted to hang together), His Royal Highness on the left and The Crown Prince on the right. Each painting is 9" x 12" x 1/2", acrylics on canvas, $289 separately or $499 for both. Inquiries may come to me.
Back in the studio, I'm thinking about that space between actual experience and dreams, where bits of reality stick to ethereal possibilities. 
It's a fascinating place, that juncture between imagination and true events. Anything is possible, like royalty among the Orioles. I mean, it makes total sense for every species to have it's own royal family.

Unicorns are highly skilled at camoflauging themselves. That's why you have to search very hard to find them.

36" x 48", acrylics on panel, featuring a unicorn hidden inside a rose bush. Don't despair if you can see her right away - just breathe slowly and look closely. This piece is $3599. Inquiries may come to me. Please and thank you.
I usually buy my flowers from the week-old bucket. But not today. This painting was totally worth splurging on the most insanely gorgeous blush roses. Added bonus - they will last a bit longer than I am accustomed to.
