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.

The Canine Art Guild


 

An oldie but a goodie, one of my favorite paintings from 4 years back, "The Gift". This piece is also a perfect example of investing in art - all sentiment aside, it's increased in value by nearly 60%!!
 


 

The Canine Art Guild (CAG) was begun by a group of artists who wanted to establish a community that supported dog art and those who make dog art.

 
Little did we know that the CAG would be welcomed with such enthusiasm. Today the guild, numbering upwards of 120 members, fluorishes as an international collective of artists at all stages of their careers.

 
I've been lucky to sit at the helm all along, and I can't say enough what a blessing it has been. I've made friends with so many fellow artists, learned quite a bit in the process, and hopefully helped facilitate learning and sharing as well.

 
I invite you to take a peek at our website and peruse some of the members' art. You'll find all disciplines, and maybe discover a new favorite process or subject matter or artist.

 
And while there, can you cast a vote for the People's Choice Award in our latest exhibition? This is a remarkable exhibition in more ways than just the collection of art, as cash prizes will be awarded to animal rescues/shelters in lieu of individual artists!

 
Thanks so much for your time! Hoping tomorrow to have paperwork and computer duties completed so I can go to the easel with an unencumbered mind.
 

May your winter week be colorful and bright!
Kim
