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.

"Kisa," 8" x 10", acrylics on panel, depicting a gorgeous British Shorthair cancer survivor (she lost her eye to melanoma). This painting is done in acrylics on a Raymar panel, and will be headed home once the varnish dries. Inquires on acquiring one of my limited commissioned pieces may come directly to me. Thanks so much in advance!

#YourTurn, #DayTwo

As mentioned yesterday, this week I am participating in the #YourTurn Challenge. Inspired by Seth Godin, #YourTurn is made up of bloggers who recognize the privilege of an audience, and collectively are pledging to deliver content for 7 days straight. Today is #DayTwo, and my assignment is to share "What's Important to Me." I'll try to keep it short, in no particular order.
  • My family.
  • My insanely brilliant and cherished circle of friends.
  • The security of a roof over my head.
  • The tools of my trade.
  • Music to fit every possible mood (thank you Spotify and Soundcloud!)
  • Books, whether it's a worn paperback handed me by a friend, something from the library, or a digital download, content has never before been so easily available.
  • Kitten Therapy and walking the dog.
  • My yoga mat. My yogi master (I could call her a mistress, but that might raise eyebrows) and the dear beacons I practice with.
  • Eyesight, even though it be sorely nearsighted, it suffices to show me color and nuance and joy.
  • Inspiration (it's everywhere) and Whispers* (they are everywhere too!)
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
Warmly, Kim 

*Whispers are messages from the universe that one hears only when fully present
