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.

Camargue Peace


"Camargue Peace," 24" x 20", acrylics on panel, featuring a wild horse with a crown of blooms. This piece is $699, price includes complimentary shipping inside the US, and it will arrive wrapped in prayer. Inquiries may come to me.

SOLD (thank you so much!)

I try to steer clear of politics and world events on my blog, but I can't anymore. It seems like every day our world becomes more divided, and humanity showers itself with additional pain. I had to pour myself into a painting done in response to the horrific tragedy in Nice, and spent 9 hours painting alla prima (wet on wet, none stop) today. 

I've broken tradition and made prints available prior to the sale of the original, because I am hoping that adding this piece in whatever form to your personal collection will bring joy and peace to your life. We could all use some more of that, no?

The Camargue Horse is one of the oldest breeds in the world, and it hails from Southern France. The flowers were chosen for their specific meanings.

Alyssum as a reminder of our intrinsic worth
Camellia to represent that our destiny is in each others' hands
Pansy as a reminder to think with compassion of each other
Periwinkle for tender recollections
Rosemary for remembrance
Verbena for prayer
Yarrow as a cure for broken hearts

Thanks for following along with my artwork,
Kim
