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.

On the Turf I


"On the Turf I," 6" x 8", acrylics on museum quality panel, starring a chestnut Thoroughbred race horse and jockey in full stride. This piece is $329 (which includes s&h inside the US). Inquiries may always come to me, and thank you so much. 

Running with an idea.

Last week I got the idea to paint individual running horses on small panels. Things got a little crazier when that idea grew into a double diptych, "Tail Lights." And yet I still very much wanted to paint these little guys at an individual level.

And so I have! 

Above is the first of a new series** where I will study propulsion and power and balance inside the horses' stride. I am wasting no time in getting going here - my second piece, "On the Turf II" is nearly completed, and later this afternoon I will start "On the Dirt."

(**Working in a series is a fantastic way to fully explore an idea. It gives the artist multiple opportunities to come at a concept from different directions.)

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