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.

It's Derby Week!! how's about a little "Afternoon Sun"

"Afternoon Sun," 6" x 12," acrylic on canvasboard, $359 to the first one raising their hand. On your mark, get set, go!!  ....inquiries may come to me.
 
As tradition in Painting a Dog a Day, the week before the Kentucky Derby is turned over to the horses. This week is an excuse to indulge in my lifelong love - I don't specifically paint Thoroughbreds during Derby Week but revel in all equine shapes and colors. 
 
So here's your first piece, a draft mix lazily grazing his way into the picture plane while the sun glances off his flanks. This is Tony, a huge lug of a sweetheart belonging to a good friend of mine who also happens to be a brilliant equine photographer. Check out Juliet's work at her website, including her newly published book.
 
Tony's piece is a lovely quiet painting that would make a nice accent to a variety of interiors. Email me if you have any questions about how to get this one on your wall. 
 
I can squeeze in one or two more equine paintings this week, if you care to nominate someone. Send your ideas to me via email.
 
And a big warm tail-wagging tongue flashing welcome to all the new Dog-a-Day readers, many of whom I met at Orion Oaks Elementary Fine Arts Night last week. Here's the lowdown - one painting each workday, emailed to subscribers usually mid-afternoon, then posted to the project blog later in the day. Unsold paintings are added to my etsy store every couple weeks. Studio proceeds benefit animal shelters and rescues, and I am always open to hearing your rescue stories and any other thoughts you have.
 
Thanks, as always, for sharing my artwork with your friends and family.
See you tomorrow!
Kim
