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.

Dapples and Braided, a Contour Doodle

"Dapples and Braided," a contour doodle, roughly 9" x 12", acrylics and ink on paper. This piece has been donated to the Equis Gallery Relocation Fund and is available via auction - learn more and bid here. And as always, inquires may always come directly to me

A Contour Doodle?

Yup, you read it right. It's a contour drawing done with great joi de vivre, then embellished with spirited color (acrylic paint).

It's something I discovered via Carla Sonheim and Lynn Whipple's class The Year of the Spark (get used to me talking about the class, because it's gonna carry me through all of 2015 - you can see my homework, and even order prints of some of the assignments). I combined Carla's "one-liners" - drawings done with, literally, one line - with my paints, and a new idea was born!

I've been playing around with these the past couple days. I think it's pretty obvious I am having a good time, too!

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