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.

Gracie - An Artists' Muse

FROM TOP: "Inquisitive" and "Precocious," both 9" square sketches of Gracie, a miniature salt and pepper Schnauzer, done in Golden Open Acrylics on multimedia artboard. One for my client and one for.... you! Drop me a line if you are interested.

BOTH SOLD (thank you!)


Gracie belongs to another artist, the amazing photographer Sarah Beth. It's clear from Gracie's eyes that she knows her job is to inspire. And that she takes said job as seriously as tormenting the cats.

And when Gracie's "Mom" Sarah isn't shooting photographs of Gracie, she's working up equally gorgeous photos of her clients' dogs. I was moved to tears when reading about her session with Gryphon, a terminally ill golden. Sarah has the sort of compassion and dedication towards rescued animals and service animals that we love and respect around these parts, too.

So, when you are done oogling over Sarah Beth's website, take a minute to visit the Daily Painter's site and cement my position in the Top 5 !!

Your assignment is such: visit http://www.dailypainters.com/blog/contest (and have patience - the site's been having problems loading up today) and vote 5 gold stars for Painting a Dog a Day.

If you voted before you can vote again - the winner will be chosen on June 18th based on number of votes.

I'm sending out a huge thanks - you got me this far, and I truly appreciate it!!

Kim
