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.

Dream, 15" x 30", acrylics on gallery stretched canvas, $799 plus s&h. Inquiries may come to me.
Another encaustic piece. This time I wanted the horses to melt into the space. Layers of nuanced pours, scrapings, scratching and drawing.

Next comes a BIG one. At least I think so.........

Protect, 15" x 30", acrylics on gallery stretched canvas, $799 plus s&h. Inquiries may come to me.
I've been playing with an acrylic based encaustic-like process - basically suspending my pigments in a translucent, pourable medium sharing many of the same properties as melted wax. This allows me to blend, scratch into, layer, suspend, dribble and do all sorts of delightful things with the paint.

So much to learn!!

And So They Rise

And So They Rise, 24" x 48", acrylics on panel, $1499 each plus s&h. Inquiries may come to me.
Paintings like today's make all the tears, sacrifices, self-doubt, tantrums and paint-overs worth it. This one gives me chills - quite literally. She's extra special - relevant for this perilous moment in time and simultaneously timeless. She carries a bit of my heart and the fortitude and grace of all the women I have loved.
Payment plans available - let's talk if you want her to be flying in your home.
Thanks to Sue Schultz for the title!

ABOVE ON TOP, Two (green yellow), BELOW, Two Budgies (turquoise blue). Each original is 8" x 8" x 1/2", acrylics on panel with the image painted around the sides, $159 each plus s&h. Inquiries may come to me.

I am thinking about lines, and how they are far more than just edges. Trying to make each of my brushstrokes line-like. It's turning my brain inside out a bit, although I expect my brain already was a bit inside out to begin with.

Anyways, these would make glorious Mother's Day gifts. With a paypal payment, I can get them to you in time for gifting that first Sunday in May.
