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.

This and That

 
 
ABOVE: Detail of "Helper," 30" x 13", portrait of a Golden Retriever, done in acrylics on 1/2" birch hardwood, $899. I made revisions to this guy, including adding more drips and slimming his body down - lots of pics are on FB, including Helper Finnigan and Helper daVinci - email me for purchase details

 
I realized AFTER THE FACT, that my easel settled into a deeper angle yesterday when I was working on the heavier birch panel. Which means I should have been paying attention to the distortion that happens when something is not perpendicular to the picture plane/my eyes. Poor Helper was all foreshortened, but I fixed him this morning. He's happier now. So am I.

 
I also got final approval on Mya and Ally's portraits, both pictured below. I can't wait to deliver these two!!

 

 

Enjoy your evening,
Kim
