Paintings With Soul

Since October 2006 I've been a daily painter, creating a new pet portrait at least 5 times per week. At first the paintings were mostly dogs, but over the years I've expanded my offerings to include a variety of animals, pets, children and other treasured heirlooms.

And yes, I accept commissions!

You are invited to sign up using the links at the left to receive the dailies via email or 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.

Thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

The Wishing Tree

 
 
The Wishing Tree, from the Salvadore Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. Museum visitors tie their wishes onto ribbons attached to a tree on the museum grounds. And of course Elizabeth and I made wishes of our own.
 
 

Just an aside, when we arrived at the Museum I realized how much more entertaining our day would have been had we painted elaborate mustaches on our faces prior.

 
I never studied Salvadore Dali's work extensively, but let me tell you that this is changing. After today's museum visit, he is a new favorite - he was passionate about his materials, his process, and his beliefs.

 
On our drive home, I read aloud excerpts from a new acquisition - his book 50 Secrets of Master Craftsmanship. Brilliant!
 
Hope your wishes come true,
Kim
