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.

Meanwhile, thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

"Awe," 8" x 12", acrylics on copper, an orangey-coppery tabby kitten portrait that glows far more than the computer can show. This piece, which truly is exquisite in person - the computer simply cannot capture the way the light moving across this changes the value/reflective quality of the exposed copper - is $849, which includes s&h inside the US. All inquiries may come to me.

Ahh, Copper, You Magical Glittery Surface, You.....

I have been researching various copper sources ever since daVinci's last portrait. And today a couple new copper pieces arrived from Hong Kong via ebay, of all places. And all I could do was think about painting on them!

I had a million things to do, including addressing college financial aid details, paying studio bills and 3rd quarter paperwork, baking for school lunches, prepping/packing for next week's workshop in Louisiana, wrapping and shipping 5 paintings, a private drawing lesson, and my favorite task of all, laundry. But I HAD to make time to work with one of the panels and reconnect with the seductive magic that is copper. (And I got all of the above completed, too!)

Hooray for me. And for Awe.

I've got another copper panel left for tomorrow. And a trip to the library (for research purposes), a commission to finish, a magazine cover painting to create, demo pieces to line up for next week's workshop, details to finalize for my gallery demo at AKA Stella Gray (next Friday in New Orleans - who's coming?), a dance boosters meeting and curriculum night at the high school.

My life is most definitely not boring.

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