Inspired by a favorite song -"Smallest Light," by Ingrid Michelson

Break my heart
Break my hands
You can take anything but my plans
Ooh ooh I got big things to do
You can laugh,
Have your fun
I'll be standing right here when you're done
Ooh ooh I got big things to do
Just because you don't see us
Doesn't mean that we don't exist
Sometimes the smallest light
Shines so bright
Yeah, sometimes the smallest light shines so bright
I got heart, it's enough
It's the only thing left that they can't pull apart
And when they try, I'll fly
I can't win, there's a cost
You can't lose what you've already lost
Ooh ooh I got big things to do
Just because you don't see us

Incredulous

In process detail view of "Incredulous," 18" x 24", acrylics on panel. This one is currently unspoken for - inquiries can come tome.

On the eve of American Thanksgiving, I am feeling enormously gratefu to be living a creative life. And this is a life that you, the reader, has made possible.  "Thank you" can't possibly sum up the entirety of what I am feeling.

Regardless of whether you celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, know that I will be celebrating your presence in my life. Love, whether delivered in person or across the miles, is coming your way from Michigan.

Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork.

PS I have gotten SO many Black-Friday-Markdown-Buy-Now-and-Buy-Lots emails the last couple weeks that I've become numb to them. It saddens me, my culture's seemingly total focus on consumerism vs a focus on joining together around a table to share a meal. I hope that your hearths and hearts are overflowing with the things t…

The Ninth Life

"The Ninth Life," 11" x 14", acrylics on museum quality panel, $499 plus s&h to the first one asking nicely. Inquiries can come tome.

Starring one of my current studio kitties Mona Lisa, but harkening to memories of Turtledove, the studio namesake, who passed away on Thanksgiving Day eleven years ago. There's something tender and precious about the delicacy of old age; the lines of a life well lived, battle scars and smile lines both. The surface of this painting bears those same sorts of marks, telling the story of a peaceful rest after a grand adventure.

Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork.

Rearranging the Lines

"Rearranging the Lines," 11" x 14", acrylics on museum quality panel, $499 plus s&h to the first one asking nicely. Inquiries can come tome.

Nobody wants to be predictable, nor do they want to be limited by others' notions of what they can or should be. So move those lines - they aren't barriers, just starting points - and reach for your goals.

Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork.

Not Content With Discontent

"Not Content With Discontent," 18" x 24", acrylics on panel, $699 plus s&h to the first one asking nicely. Inquiries can come tome.

This painting is for my fellow American's who voted this past week. And for all those beyond our borders, who watched and waited and maybe even held their breath a bit.

And might I also add that foreshortening is very, very difficult.

Thanks, as always, for humoring me.
Warmly, Kim

A New Book!

I have been working - mostly quietly, but most definitely diligently - on a new book. I wanted to take the Sirens, all their nuance that doesn't transfer via screens, and place them in readers' hands. The design had to foster introspection, conversation and personal discovery. As I laid the pages out and refined my vision, this book also became a vehicle for marrying the paintings with my passion for art journaling.

I couldn't be prouder to announce the publication of "Reflections, a Personal Melody." This book features over a dozen of my favorite siren paintings; in process imagery, details, and other snippets of the series which pretty much ruled my world this last year. The design is simple, with the idea that readers can soak up the message of a single painting, or embellish the pages with their own words or artwork as they see fit, working in direct response to the paintings. In addition to this publication, which arrives in time for holiday gift giving, rea…

The Strength of Her Convictions

"The Strength of Her Convictions," 15" x 30" x 1" gallery wrap canvas, $799 plus s&h. I accept personal checks, credits cards through Paypal, and welcome payment installations. I also ship worldwide. Inquiries may cometo me.

This painting is about my daughter, also known as The Princess. Inspired by her resolve and integrity, I started it over the weekend. As the piece revealed itself to me, I recognized it also made for a universal statement about standing one's ground or speaking out. Which is poignantly clear today, Election Day in America. Also the same day I signed the painting and called her finished.

Your voice matters. If you can vote, please do.
And if you have a Princess (or Prince) of your own, please hug them.
