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.

NOTE: My apologies for posting this out of order. It really came about on September 27th.

I have a new painting idea that I need to request your help with. Some of you might recall my musings about working more from actual items, and incorporating paintings of dog ephemera into the dog-a-day project. Well, I want to take that one step further.

I would like to do a still life painting of dog tags, actually a series of paintings of dog tags, titled simply “Memories.”

A handful on a tablecloth.
One lying forgotten in an overgrown garden.
A few hanging from an old collar on a hook.
An old bell jar ½ full.
A montage of them on a flat surface.

My brain keeps spinning with the idea. The only problem? I just have a few tags myself.

This is where you come in.

IF you can part with your tags – whether they be id ones, or old licenses, or rabies tags – whatever the case – I would be honored to add them to my collection, and capture them in paint.

I cannot return them, sadly – I’m not certain how I could keep track of which went to whom – but I do promise you that they will be cherished. And painted. And shared.

Tags can come to me at 346 N Anderson, Lake Orion, MI 48362.

Thanks, as always, for your support of my work.
And for sharing these paintings (and ideas) with friends and family,
Kim
