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.

Don’t border collies all have a playful come-hither look about them? It could be their ceaseless energy, or that whimsical way their ears flop and follow every moment of their head. A charming lopsided mask doesn’t hurt, either.

Today’s painting is of Maggie, a border collie mix who adores a good game of Frisbee, regardless of the weather. I could use some of her nonplussed attitude about now (I’m so sick of this ridiculous Michigan weather!).

There’s a good portion of lighter values in this painting, but nothing that is pure white. All the light areas are tints of green, violet, and blue. Makes for a very realistic depth to her fur, and the loose brushwork creates a sense of motion, too.

“Wanna Play?,” 4x6, dog portrait in acrylic on canvasboard. The second dog-a-day painting to join the collection of Jackie Good (thank you, Jackie).

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with your friends and family,
Kim
