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.

IN PROCESS: The Winner's Circle, American Pharoah

IN PROCESS: "The Winner's Circle, American Pharoah," 24-3/4" x 24", depicting Triple
Crown candidate American Pharoah after winning the Kentucky Derby, on his way to
the winner's circle at Churchill Downs. This was my view on Derby day, painted 
using my iPhone photos. This painting is acrylics on a museum quality panel and 
is available for $2980 (including s&h within the US) to the first asking nicely.
Inquiries may always come to me. In process photos are here.

An Ambitious Undertaking

I can't help but wonder if American Pharoah will be the next Triple Crown winner.
And while my Kentucky Derby experience couldn't be more perfect, seeing a Triple
Crown winner in the flesh just might make it perfecter after the fact.

So I'm savoring and enjoying that possibility this week - quite a bit!

This is a BIG painting - big in size and in ambition. So many complex areas - the
spectators, the horses, the infield, the jumbotrons - and I'm trying to paint this
intuitively, which means lots of looking and thinking and listening and working 
slowly.

I am thrilled with the direction it's taking, though. Perhaps I'll finish it tomorrow?!

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

Warmly, Kim
