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.

"Kit," 8" x 10", acrylics on museum quality panel, a commissioned pet portrait of a tri-colored long haired Chihuahua. Kit's painting has a home (thank you so very much!), however do not despair - I am now accepting a limited number of special projects like this one. Please send inquiries to me

I know, I know. I've been painting a lot of things other than dogs. And dogs are what the majority of you readers know me for and want to see.

But here's the thing - I love painting them just as much as I did before, they just aren't getting to the easel as often. Because I want to learn better handling of lights and darks, and focus on manipulating edges - both things that aren't always possible when working from photos on a specific likeness.

So yes, I'm mixing it up a bit. Working on the 100 Toys series and doing more totem paintings, spending a lot of time journaling and sketching and reading and thinking and listening.

Regardless of what I am painting, though, I remain grateful for your time and attention and feedback. Your eyes and your stories make my pieces come all the more alive - thank you for sharing them!!

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