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.

Flutterby


"Flutterby," 8" x 8" x 2", acrylics on a deeply cradeled museum quality panel, depicting a My Little Pony figurine toy. I grabbed her as an impulse buy while in the checkout lane at Target. Now, after the success of this painting, I want to go back and get more (because I am a hoarder and I have 2 other panels identical to this and think a triptych would be super fun!).

This piece is $429, and that includes shipping and handling direct to your US address. Let me know if you want Flutterby for your home!

I Finally Figured Yellow Out. And now I've most likely cursed myself by saying so out loud.

But here's the thing, just like with any other color, yellow grays out (de-saturates) as it moves away from one's eye. Until today, I didn't see that graying process, I simply read the overall intensity of yellow (generically speaking) and painted that.

"Paint what you see, and not what you know."

How many times did I say that to my students last week? but do I listen to my own advice?

(and yeah, I know, it's Greek to non-artists reading this. But it's a hugely important discovery. Honest!)

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