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're Running Out of Time ~~ AirMail Journaling


 
The welcome postcards for my summer workshop AirMail Journaling will be mailed tomorrow. The cards include a tune-up exercise to get participants primed and ready to go.
 

What's AirMail Journaling?
  • 5 art journal lessons mailed to your home (or an address of your choosing) - lessons include directions, prompts, ephemera and materials, along with sample images 
  • we start the week of June 25th and will continue through the end of August - the lessons will be mailed every two weeks
  • there's also a private, online classroom where participants can share their images and have a dialogue about processes/ideas

So, how much for all this wicked sweet journaling goodness?


Only $30. 


I kid you not. Only $30 (within the US - additional fees for international addresses apply). Simply paypal funds tojournal@turtledovedesigns.com and I'll get off a materials list and class outline.


What will we be doing? I'll give you a glimpse:
  • self portraits with experimental lettering
  • mail and index card art
  • working with silhouettes
  • layers, layers and more layers and even more layers
  • various drawing approaches
  • working from life
  • COLLAGE!
  • rubbings
  • embellishments

Can you stand it?

Thanks for following along with me and my art,
Kim 
 
 
P S End of school year: one half day. Start of vacation:  one half day and a hair.
 


What is art, or creative, journaling? It's taking a blank book (or page) and dumping your feelings onto it, using whatever sorts of marks and materials you desire, text optional. My grownUPs class meets on the third Thursday of each month - the above sample is a demonstration of what I call "Reality Doodling," making a doodle inspired by an actual object.

I'm off tomorrow for a whirlwind visit with my new godson.

 
Behave while I'm gone, will you?

 
I will check email occasionally, and may respond if the baby is asleep and I haven't had too much sangria (and I speak from experience in saying that, yes, you can have too much sangria).

 
I'm returning to town just in time to teach next week's grownUPs Journaling class (at Little Monsters Toy Store from 6-8pm).

 
I am REALLY excited about this new lesson I've prepared - it's tactile and patterned and a riot of gooey delicious color.

 
RSVP if you wanna come!!
