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.

Tiznow, a painting on copper


"Tiznow," 6-1/2" x 9", acrylics on copper panel. Tiznow is a Thoroughbred stallion from WinStar Farms and a horse of many laurels, the latest of which is one of my muses. I'm sure that is valued far more than his Horse of the Year honor, right?!

The copper is exquisite when seen in person. Exposed bits of the surface are an active part of the composition, changing in value and offering reflective luminescance as the viewer/light moves across the painting. Here's a little video.

$699 will get Tiznow to your door. It includes s&h inside the US.

All inquiries may come to me.

It's like riding a bike. 

I was joking about this over on my FB page when sharing in process photos of this painting. I felt very stiff when I started this painting - the surface was pretty slick and my paints weren't juicy enough. I kinda knew what I was doing, but my Inner Critic was reminding me of all the things I didn't know, and I started to get a little anxious.

Then I changed up my soundtrack. Put some Deorro on really loud so that I couldn't hear that mean nasty Inner Critic b$&^#, started dancing so that my muscles weren't stiff, and just had fun.

I think it worked out to the painting's benefit in the end.

Here's a video of the piece in the light.

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