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.

Inspiration of a Different Kind

Today is my Grandmother's 90th birthday. She's pictured above with Gavin, one of her two namesake great-grandchildren (The Princess is the other, and she's got about a jillion other greats to tag along with these two).

"Gomp" is the most amazing woman I know. The things she has seen - and conquered - in her lifetime make my challenges seem trivial. And she's still going strong, with a hearty laugh, a practical and healthy dose of common sense, and a smile that hugs you from across the room.

She told me I could do it all, and was so convincing that I never doubted it for a second.

Thanks for always believing in me, Gompie!

And thank YOU, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork and musings with your friends and family,
Kim
