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.

I first met Brutus earlier last year when I got to paint him in a dual celebration of his 10th birthday and a liver cancer victory. As with every animal I get to paint, I developed a great fondness for his exceptionally sweet temperament. And that massive tongue – he was ALWAYS grinning.

So it was with a heavy heart that I read the email telling me that Brutus had been put to sleep. This piece is for those who are feeling a bit empty without him.

Brutus, 6x8, acrylic on canvaboard, private collection.

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with friends and family.
Enjoy all the slobbery (or not so slobbery) kisses you can today,
Kim
