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.

Ball Hog (Harley)


"Ball Hog (Harley)," 9" x 12," acrylics on a museum quality panel, depicting a very lucky mixed breed dog. This painting has a home, but I could possibly create something similar starring your dog, so please inquire

A Surprise

A's family had been hounding her for a dog for a very, very long time. And I bet you can tell already where this story is going - she resisted, also for a very, very long time.

And then this Momma dog was rescued - she had a litter of brand new pups under a mattress in Detroit, during one of the coldest winters we've known. And this Momma dog and her puppies ended up in foster care with one of A's friends.

You know where this is going right? It goes without saying - one of the puppies won over A's heart, and that of her family, too.

Meet Harley. A lucky girl to have had her life turned around from an unlikely and frozen beginning.

She spent last week vacationing with A's family, who kindly adopted The Princess as well. The girls snuck around texting photos of Harley to me until our plan was solidified.

I'm not often present when paintings are revealed - typically I mail them off, and then lose sleep until I hear they have been received and are perfect. But last Friday evening was capped by the best reveal - gifting A and her family with Harley's portrait.

Oh yeah. And I got The Princess back, too. Tanner, but none the worse for wear.

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