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.

Guppies I

 
 
 
"Guppies I," 8" x 10", a not-very-still-at-all-still-life painting done in acrylics on museum quality panel, worked up from an actual fishbowl and non-floating guppies. Not for sale.
 

I'm working out some ideas for a new series of fish pieces - lots of glass and water and reflections punctuated by boldly colored swimmers.
 
In process views of "Guppies I" were shared on the studio Facebook page yesterday. You can find them inside the Mobile Uploads folder. And by the way, you do not need to have a Facebook account to view either of those links.
 
I'd love to talk about creating spectacular original art for you - email me and we can talk.
 
da Vinci and Mona Lisa pretty much ignore the fish bowl when it's on the coffee table because the mouth of it is stuffed with rooting houseplants and herbs, making the guppies not as obvious. But when I moved itinto the studio, suddenly it became The Kitty Holy Grail. 
 

 
So I ended up painting with a brush in my right hand and a squirt bottle in my left. Several times I accidentally squirt the painting. Yeah, I'm that coordinated.
 
Thanks for following along with my artwork,
Kim, who's now mopping up the studio
