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.

Come Out to Play....


The front porch of the Orion Art Center (Lake Orion, Michigan), where I proudly hung the banner for June's exhibition, featuring Painting a Dog a Day pieces accompanied with bits of the "Happily Ever After" exhibit I hung at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary last summer.

Tonite's the nite!

From 7-9pm, I will be demonstrating my painting technique and fielding (hopefully art-related) questions from those in attendance. No reservations necessary. Donations at the door will benefit the Oakland Pet Adoption Center.

This Saturday, I'll lead the fearless deeper into my happy little world of color and expressive brushwork. My workshop "Mixing Color - Not Mud" will introduce exercises and techniques that build confidence and color knowledge. To enroll in "Mixing Color - Not Mud," please call the OAC directly - 248-693-4986.

All of this will happen against a backdrop of nearly 50 Dog a Day paintings. A big tail-wagging thanks to the Orion Art Center for hosting my artwork and musings this month!

Can you stand it? I can't!

Off to pack my bags!

Hope you can join us,
Kim


Bedlam Rules

I know I tend to keep myself occupied, packing as much as possible into every day.

But the last two weeks even I have gone overboard.

Multiple workshops, presentations, client consults, and the de rigor of daily painting, coupled with the entire end-of-the-school-year rush (times three, since my kids are in elementary, middle and high school), have taken the insanity to an entirely new level.

Next week will include some serious down time. I'm talking casual reading in the backyard (NOT art related!!), a couple of naps (the mere thought of them makes my spine tingle), longer walks with the dog (he won't know what hit him!), some quality time with my knitting needles, and whipping up a few killer meals with the kids.

It's summertime!!
