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.

Kentucky Derby Week Recap


American Pharoah Won the Derby !!!

I snapped the above iPhone photo from our seats near the finish line at Churchill Downs, as American Pharoah was making his way to the winner's circle.  Yeah, I did just say that. Our seats. At the finish line. 

Here's some other way amazing things I got to do while in Kentucky:
 
Hang at Keeneland Race Track for morning workouts with some friends, after which we enjoyed breakfast afterwards at the track kitchen.

Take in the artwork at Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington.

Sip wine on the banks of the Ohio River.

Get pink and freckled (yes, I had sunscreen on!).

Practiced yoga in the dappled light of a glorious tree drenched in a Kentucky sunrise each morning.

Signed about a gajillion posters, tickets, programs and tote bags for the kindest people.

Made some new-to-me friends that feel as though I've known them my whole life.

Ate the most exquisite meals - I kid you not - they were cray cray!

Learned to curse with a southern accent.

I shared lots of photos on Facebook here

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