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.

“Miss You,” 6x8, pet portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, part of a very special private collection.

This painting is a surprise birthday gift from my client to her best friend, who recently lost one of her best friends, Gizmo.

With Holly’s permission (she didn’t know that a painting was coming alongside her reprinted words), here is an excerpt from a poem she wrote memorializing Gizmo:

My darling boy…


I will miss you….


Smile askew


Drawing me in


I will miss you….


Faithful sidekick


Forever friend, bedfellow


I will miss you…


My darling boy,


I will miss you.

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with friends and family who understand the above.
See you tomorrow,
Kim

PS Happy Birthday, Holly.
