Commission a Pet Portrait

"Cannonball," a pet portrait which now sits in a private collection (thank you SO much LH!). Portraits start at $399. Inquiries may always come to me.
You can read this in a whisper if it helps, but summer is coming to a close. Our local grocery has had ceramic pumpkins at the front of their store for a couple weeks, which I find offensive in August, but nevertheless, there they sit because noone consulted me first.

However, now is a great time to take outdoor photos of your pet if you are thinking about commissioning a portrait in the coming months (I won't say it, but, ahem, the h*(!$@&$......). Turn the flash off on your camera, and get down to their eye level while they are playing. Don't worry about a "sit, stay" - those sorts of photos are fine, but casual non-posed action shots also translate well to a WOW portrait. And I happen to know someone who's got nearly 20 years of experience in creating custom, original WOW portraits that will knock your (soon to be wearing winter woolen) socks off.

Custom paintings start at $399. We can set up a payment plan to ensure that you are able to commission the sort of project you will delight in for the rest of your life. Reach out to me to begin our conversation, as I do book up quickly once the air begins to cool.

Thanks so very much for following along on my art journey,
Warmly, Kim

PS Cannonball sits in a private collection, but you can order prints and various other reproductions here

"Blue," 16" x 20", acrylics on panel, not for sale. Not even if you ask nicely. My family will burn me at the stake if I let this one go.

When My Better Half works nights (like he is tonite), I play while the sun's up and work at the end of the day. It's a fun change to my normal routine.

Today included a little day trip with one of my favorite peeps in one of our favorite places. It was a delight to enjoy each other's company while the rest of the world was at work.

And tonight I had blocked time out to paint for a juried exhibit. My entry is due next week, and, true to form I waited until the nth hour. Because the next painting is always going to be the better one. Well, not always, but I do like to pretend. And I think tonite I might have played my cards well.

Well, mostly I played my cards well. You see, I turned my back, and Blue - yes, sweet little adorable - ate half my pizza** while I was feeding Gertrude Stein. Gertie the bunny, not Gertie the art…

Made of Starlight (Medicine Hat #16)

"Made of Starlight (Medicine Hat #16)," 18" x 24" x 1", acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas, image painted around the edges, so no need to frame. $899 plus s&h, message mefor more details.

Yes, that is copper paint reflecting the studio lights on the horse's shoulder, and yes, that is a silvery haze around her face. Because starlight sparkles. Just like you.

Thanks, as always, for following along with my art journey,

The Spell She Casts (Medicine Hat #13)

because our world needs more beauty
"The Spell She Casts (Medicine Hat #13)," 16" x 20" x 1", acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas, image painted around the side, so no need to frame unless you wish. And yes, that glow you see in the image is gold paint reflecting the light - this piece will move and shimmer as you pass by. She is $649 plus s&h to the first one asking nicely. Inquire directlyto me- I accept personal checks, paypal, venmo and will arrange payment plans.

This Medicine Hat painting is number 13, so of course that association alone had me thinking about magic. If you love the company of equines, you know first hand the spells they cast. And that their magic lingers long after they have left.

Thanks, as always, for following along with my art journey,
