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.

"Frolic", 12" x 16", acrylics on museum quality panel, depicting a foal (photo reference courtesy of stretching her legs. Further exploration of edges and blending courtesy of inspiration from studies with Stanka Kordic. This painting, this little one, she need a home. $959 will bring her to your doorstep (inside the contiguous US) - inquire directly to moi, with in process photos here.

More Gut Listening

Pursuant to Puff Ball's painting on Monday, I bring you Frolic.

Painted mostly with a wedge and my fingers, with a conscious effort to lose edges, and a focus on super fun color. And size - if you haven't noticed, I've been painting larger lately, too - and this one carries some moderate texture.

I'm liking this approach. A lot. It's a new way of capturing energy and motion, all the while allowing me to also dabble with the abstract qualities of the composition.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your ideas on loosening up while still retaining the essence of the subject matter.

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