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.

In the Beginning


In Process, "Strawberry Shortcakes," 12" x 16", depicting a pile of old dolls, acrylics on museum quality panel, available for $629 to the first one asking nicely. Inquiries can come to moi, please and thank you!
 

The early stages of this one tell a story - see the light blue shadows underneath the pink ground? That's an old painting back there, testament to a composition that just didn't hold it's own enough to merit completion.

 
I'm excited about these girls - inspiration photo courtesy of Linda Marr, who shot the pic when cleaning out her now adult children's belongings. The actual dolls are tucked away for future grandchildren to play with, and meanwhile, I get to spend the next couple days with them on my easel.

 
But first, I'm off for a little grown up play time. My Better Half is home early from work, and we are taking Elizabeth St Hilaire Nelson to the Kid Rock show tonite, then loading her on a Florida bound plane tomorrow.

 
I'll return to the shortcakes later tomorrow!!

 
Thanks so much for following along with my artwork,
Kim
