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.

Quincy Sunshine


 
 
"Quincy Sunshine," nearly 7" x 8" (just a little shy of 8"), portrait of a puppy, done in acrylics on a museum quality panel, $379 to the first one raising their hand. Inquiries may come to me.
 

Quincy is a yellow lab-golden retriever cross, bred and raised within PAWS to be a service dog. He was career changed due to health issues, which meant - hooray! - he could return to the family who raised him.

 
Career changed doesn't mean couch potato, though. Quincy is a certified therapy dog, visiting hospitals, libraries and nursing homes in his area. He also competes in dock diving, flyball and agility.

 
This painting is headed to an online exhibition - let's see if Quincy can't also take the art world by storm!!

 
In process views of "Quincy Sunshine" are on the studio's Facebook page.

 
Thanks for following along with me and my art,
Kim 
 
 
P S End of school year: 1.5 days and counting. Start of vacation: 1.51 days and counting.



Mini-cation

 
I've taken very few breaks in the last few years.

 
Those with active kids know how difficult it can be to schedule any sort of get-away between school and other commitments.

 
And those who run their own businesses know that a vacation turns to punishment upon returning because a week's worth of tasks are piled up on top of what needs to be accomplished. Yesterday.

 
But it's not every day that I get the opportunity to visit my brother and his wife and their sweet baby boy all the way in Texas. Which is what I'll be doing come Friday, y'all.

 
I will check email occasionally, from pool side, or perhaps while the baby is sleeping (unless I'm cradling him, in which case, sssshhhhh!), so don't panic if it takes me a bit to respond. Purchases and shipment details will be arranged the following week. And my brushes can patiently wait for me to return as well.

 
Meanwhile, squeeze your little - and big ones - and enjoy the cusp of summertime.
