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.

YELLOW - The Color of Hope

If you have ever wanted one of my paintings but not been able to make it happen, now is your chance - read on!
"YELLOW," 8" x 10", portrait of a sunshiney yellow lab, valued at $469US.

The first layer of paint on this panel was a commission, and my buyer inexplicably flew the coop. After months of no response and feeling sad for this little face staring at me, I decided to make something positive happen.

So, I got out my brightest paints and reveled in yellow. She got a facelift and a new name, with the intention of bringing sunshine where it is most needed. Then I got to work figuring out the best way to send YELLOW into the world.

Here's what's going down - I'm raffling YELLOW off.  Proceeds will go to my local shelter - and I know there are many, many wonderful causes out there - but the giving does not end here - so, please, read on some more!!

The winner can choose to take YELLOW for themselves, or they may choose a gift certificate of equal value. In either instance, the painting or the gift certificate can be donated by the winner to their favorite cause - I will provide proper tax valuation paperwork to all involved.

And if your favorite cause is yourself, no explanation necessary - I understand completely!

YELLOW will be raffled on Friday, December 21st, after 1pm EST. All tickets purchased by noon EST on Friday will be included. (My apologies to those of you who follow the Mayan Calendar, but in all honesty, i couldn't have gotten the painting to you in time to enjoy anyways!) Tickets can be purchased starting now.

$2 is one raffle ticket. If you want more than one ticket, practice your math skills!  Use the Paypal button above or visit the raffle's webpage to purchase tickets. will choose the winner, and odds are based entirely on number of tickets sold.

I think that's all the deets you need!!

Except for one more thing - please accept my challenge to go out into the world and perform a random act of kindness. No need to report back - Karma knows how to find you - just send the challenge onwards. Everyone seems to be struggling today, and let's collectively do what we can to make things a smidge easier.

Kim, who's hugging you - yes you - today
