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.

"Stallion," 16" x 20" x 3/4", acrylics on museum quality cradeled panel (no need to frame!), depicting a Thoroughbred stallion (inspired by Sydney's Candy at WinStar Farms). This painting is available for $1799, including delivery to your doorstep (inside the contiguous US) - inquire directly to me. In process photos here.

NOTE: "Stallion" has been entered in the 2015 Equine Jubilee exhibition, and as such, will now be available for purchase directly through the show coordinators. The exhibition will run from August 31st - October 16th. Additional information will follow once I have it.

Artistic Growth - It's a natural pathway, just like with learning any other process.

A dozen years ago, I was searching for a better understanding of color. Then I became interested in gestural brushwork and saying more with less marks. Then it turned to edges, balancing crisp refined ones with softer loss edges. And now it's sort of a free for all - I'm consciously working all of those areas in the earliest stages, but then allowing my intuition to steer the direction of the piece.

It sounds cliche, but it's a lot of fun, communing with my materials and muse.

And dancing badly in front of my easel.

Soundtrack to today's progress:  Deorro (I streamed it from Soundcloud, and just as a warning, there is some language in his lyrics).
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
Warmly, Kim
