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.

Stick It, Finished

 
 

"Stick It," 6" x 13", acrylic on museum quality panel, depicting two dogs (a black lab and a golden retriever) and a stick, $539. In process pics are on the studio Facebook page. Meanwhile, inquiries may come to me.

 
I did think that this one was going to get trashed**- as I painted and made adjustments, the dogs' faces just kept getting bigger and bigger, and things got out of control.

 
But, somehow, I managed to reel it in and keep them contained on this little board. And while the resulting close crop was unintended, it makes you feel as though they are right there in the water with you, right in your face. And I sorta like that.

 
Fondly,
Kim, who is ready to for the best stress relief ever - cheering on The Caped Crusader's football team. Go Dragons!!****

 
**For the record, I DO paint over at least one piece every week. I happen to learn best by messing up. And thankfully, I mess up a lot, so I learn a lot, too.

 
****I didn't get this sent out prior to dashing to the game, but the dragons did what they do best - WIN - and I still have remnants of a voice. And 400+photos to sift through.
