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.

Conversations about Halation

"Conversations II," 8" x 10", acrylics on a Raymar panel, depicting two My Little Ponys. This composition has inspired a new series of toy pieces - I am excited to create them! Conversations II is available for $469 - inquiries may come to me. Please and thank you!

Today's Lesson

ha-la-tion - he effect of light spreading and bouncing, pulling reflected color into surrounding objects.

Today I focused on this, paying attention to the temperature of the light and how it bounced about, creating color drenched shadows and licks of brightness.

As always, Vianna provided a multitude of lightbulb moments. Ideas are still percolating, and I can't wait to try some new things out in my own space.


Meanwhile, there's a photo essay on the three day workshop on my FB page.

If you are interested in painting with Vianna Szabo, take a peek at her teaching calendar - hands down, she is the best I've had the pleasure of studying with.

Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
Happy holidays!
Warmly, Kim
