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.

The Tulsa Boys Home


I spent today at The Tulsa Boys' Home, and what an honor it was to get some time with their students and learn more about their program.

This is a facility that houses, educates, counsels, mentors, and fiercely loves the wards of the state placed in their care. They also have a substance abuse program. And their equine therapy program is a pioneer model - it partners with other non profit groups, reaching out and working with populations not directly on site.

I painted with a group this morning, but clearly, once again, I did more talking I think than active mark making. They were engaging, asked fabulous questions, and quite simply won me over. 

My heart hurts for these students, but it also soars, for anything becomes possible with love and respect and patience.

Tomorrow I'll be attending their annual fundraiser, The Run for The Roses Gala. Again, such an honor to be donating my time and efforts to a school that is working tremendously hard to make a difference in these boys' lives.

Thanks for following along with my artwork,
Kim
