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.

Advice for Unsticking


"Dirty Bastard," 6" x 8", acrylics on panel, depicting a bottle of my favorite Founders beer, done in acrylics on a museum quality panel, $329 including s&h within the US. Inquires may come directly to me. In process photos are here. Thanks so much in advance!

#YourTurnChallenge, #DayFive

Today's #YourTurnChallenge (#YourTurnChallenge is a Seth Godin inspired weeklong blog commitment - learn more here) topic is "Advice for Unsticking." Which I swear I wasn't aware of until about an hour ago when I sat down to write this.

Kinda ironic, because my day started out smoothly. Then circumstances convened and I got stuck in a yucky mood, creating a traffic jam of negativity in my head. You could say I took my own advice, then, because this is what I did to solve things:

Stop
Back off
Clean yourself up
Vent (in a healthy way)
Change your playlist
Invite laughter (ask another party to supply it if you can't)
Try again from a different angle
Repeat as often as necessary

I'm off to try the repeat cycle yet again. Maybe I should add "sprinkle yourself with fairy dust" somewhere in that list?

Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
Warmly, Kim
