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.

Tiny Kitten, Big Dreams

PLEASE NOTE: This painting was juried into the 2011 Richeson 75 Small Works Exhibition and is now available for purchase, with a beautiful custom frame, through them. If you are interested, please send an email to Thanks so much! Kim

"Tiny Kitten, Big Dreams (Mona Lisa)," 5" x 7", Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, depicting my new little tabby muse basking in the kitchen sunlight shortly after she joined our household.

I wonder what she's really dreaming of? Mona enjoyed sunbathing immensely those first few weeks - I wonder if she had actually felt the sun's warmth prior to that?

You can add Mona Lisa to your art collection for $289 - with 20% of the purchase price getting donated to the Oakland Pet Adoption Center, the place where Mona was a short term resident before she picked my son.


Inquiries may come to me.

Meanwhile, if this little painting doesn't sell within a week, I'll be entering her in the Jack Richeson Small Works juried international exhibition, where all the artwork must be available for purchase.

So if you want a wee little Mona, act now, before she is headed off to Wisconsin. After which you may purchase her through the gallery, or bide your time and grab her should she return to me.

Thanks for looking at, and sharing, my artwork with your friends and family -

Reproductions and Note Cards

I've just uploaded "Sniff" to my Imagekind shop, along with some other paintings.

Imagekind is where you can order reproductions of my artwork, including blank notecards.

Use the promo code "THXGIVING" through midnight November 18th and receive an additional 22% off your order.

This piece has inspired me to build some new collages of dog noses by breed. If you are interested in nominating your dog (which means you'll send me non-flash photos of his/her nose), let me know!

And meanwhile, the original collage "Sniff" is now available for purchase. It is 18" x 20", done on an Ampersand Gessobord, sealed with a protective varnish, and could be yours for $1000. More detailed views can be seen on the studio's Facebook page right here and inquiries may always come to me.
