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

"Blue," 16" x 20", acrylics on panel, not for sale. Not even if you ask nicely. My family will burn me at the stake if I let this one go.

When My Better Half works nights (like he is tonite), I play while the sun's up and work at the end of the day. It's a fun change to my normal routine.

Today included a little day trip with one of my favorite peeps in one of our favorite places. It was a delight to enjoy each other's company while the rest of the world was at work.

And tonight I had blocked time out to paint for a juried exhibit. My entry is due next week, and, true to form I waited until the nth hour. Because the next painting is always going to be the better one. Well, not always, but I do like to pretend. And I think tonite I might have played my cards well.

Well, mostly I played my cards well. You see, I turned my back, and Blue - yes, sweet little adorable - ate half my pizza** while I was feeding Gertrude Stein. Gertie the bunny, not Gertie the art…

Made of Starlight (Medicine Hat #16)

"Made of Starlight (Medicine Hat #16)," 18" x 24" x 1", acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas, image painted around the edges, so no need to frame. $899 plus s&h, message mefor more details.

Yes, that is copper paint reflecting the studio lights on the horse's shoulder, and yes, that is a silvery haze around her face. Because starlight sparkles. Just like you.

The Spell She Casts (Medicine Hat #13)

"The Spell She Casts (Medicine Hat #13)," 16" x 20" x 1", acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas, image painted around the side, so no need to frame unless you wish. And yes, that glow you see in the image is gold paint reflecting the light - this piece will move and shimmer as you pass by. She is $649 plus s&h to the first one asking nicely. Inquire directlyto me- I accept personal checks, paypal, venmo and will arrange payment plans.

This Medicine Hat painting is number 13, so of course that association alone had me thinking about magic. If you love the company of equines, you know first hand the spells they cast. And that their magic lingers long after they have left.

Thanks, as always, for following along with my art journey,
Warmly, Kim
