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.

Giving Thanks

A few days ago I learned that the friend of a friend had been in a life altering car accident, prognosis unknown. I was reveled with stories of Cherie, and how she had always been there, literally a lifetime of steadfast love and support.

And now Cherie's life has changed, the best scenario for at least another year. Realistically, perhaps forever. And all happening in the blink of an eye.

I couldn't help it - I spent the past couple days counting my blessings. My list is very, very long. I won't regal you with details, but suffice it to say that each and every one of your ears has been burning for a reason.

Meanwhile, today, instead of painting a dog, I spent a couple hours making a Get Well card for Cherie.

Should you feel so compelled to do the same, you are more than welcome to email me for for an address.

And please, if you are also compelled, spend a few moments thinking about those who have mighty big challenges ahead of them. So many people are struggling with just the basics. And far too many are faced with even bigger issues.

I all too easily fall into the trap of forgetting all the "treats" I have been given. Therefore, I am making a promise to myself and to those I love to get 100xs better at showing my gratitude.

Thank YOU - >
Kim
