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.

Fox Kit

NOTATION 9-5-15:  "Fox Kit" completed after paint dried (this humidity!). There was some sandpaper involved, a few glazes, more sandpaper, and then the painting got scanned. Any digital image suffers in comparison to the original, but the above image is a fair representation of the color, value and texture in this painting.

In process, "Fox Kit," 10" x 10", acrylics on panel, a painting a young fox inspired by a photo found on This piece is nearly finished, but I ran into the challenge of an extended paint drying time due to our hight humidity. This piece has been wet for nearly 4 hours now! I would like to take sandpaper to some areas (so as to soften edges and color transitions), but cannot do that until the paint cures. Meanwhile, this painting and all it's color and delight can be yours for $499, which include s&h inside the US. All inquiries may come to me.


Please note this is an iPhone photo (since the piece is too wet to be scanned), and therefore a smidge blurry. New image to come once the piece is dry!

I am seeking out various copper surfaces to try, via construction companies, metal suppliers, and computer parts (of all things!). While copper inventory is in transit, though, I will paint some other things.

I've long wanted to paint a fox, but never had the chance to photograph or visit with one personally. After watching a number of videos online, I found a copyright free reference photo ( and decided to give it a whirl today.

You can bet there will be more of these to come - and won't these colors look fabulous on a copper panel? (I am so OCD it hurts, I know).

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