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.

“Hairy (Harry),” 4x6, commissioned yorkshire terrier portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!)

This piece was done in preparation for my class this evening. I’ll be working on another portrait, albeit human. I am very intimidated by this next phase of my class (you may recall I have been studying still lives in phase 1) – I have no doubt of my drawing skills, but am questioning my ability to paint natural looking skin. I thought Harry’s coloring might get me thinking along the lines of human skin tones, although I know I will always be partial to those cute damp black noses…… Maybe I’ll luck out, and the model will be really hairy!!

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with your friends and family –
It’s always a treat,
Kim
