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.

“Leeloo,” 6x12, commissioned pet portrait of a white poodle, private collection (THANK YOU!).

Leeloo is the obvious companion to Naboo from yesterday. Ironically, they follow along with Monday’s Phoebe, too, playing out the range of color from rust/teddy bear brown to a soft white. I wish I could tell you I had gray and black poodles scheduled for the end of the week, but no such luck!

Even though Leeloo is a white poodle, you can see there is a TON of color in her fur. White fur is especially fun to paint because it is translucent (meaning you can see the skin underneath), and highly reflective all at the same time. Make it white curly fur, and it’s practically a party!

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