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.

Only 12 day left of 12!! I've been sharing paintings that would make most excellent gifts (see links below). These pieces will carry special holiday pricing thru December 15th, 2017. They are one-of-a-kind originals, and once they are gone, they are gone - so please, if you are interested in something, let me know in the timeliest manner possible.
The challenge with this one was how to paint music. Obviously, a dancer was part of that equation - but how do I personally visualize music, it's impact on the figure and the audience? It wasn't an easy or obvious solution - lots of painting over and sanding down (yes, sandpaper) and even asking my Facebook followers to share their ideas. I came upon a lovely solution - the dancer moves into a stillness, translating music through movement, leaving a visual trail or remembered music behind.

Thank you to everyone who braved the first snow and some pretty cold weather to visit the studio. It was so wonderful to have you in my space and get to share my passion for creating. And special thanks to those of you who took a painting (or two or three or four!) home as well. YOU allow me to continue to paint and dream in that magical place.
