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.

You Are My Sunshine, Rework


 

I painted Mona's birthday portrait a couple weeks ago (remember? it was a lesson painting in early July), and was pleased with it at the time. But as the days went by, I saw things I thought would make the painting better.
 

So out came the edges of the window frame's shadow and in went lavender and cobalt glazes on her body (the image above is the reworked painting).

 
What do you think? Is it now a smidge better? 

 
If paintings hang around in my studio for long enough, I nearly always find something I want to change. It's a horrible habit.

 
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my paintings with your friends and family,
Kim
 
 
 
 

Lesson Paintings
 

I've created a one-stop spot for you to follow along with this year's lesson paintings.

 
Hopefully this will provide an easier means to locate and study my process.

 
It's just part of the facelift I'm giving the studio website this week.

 
Enjoy!
