NEW PAINTING Daydream 13

"Daydream 13," 24" x 30", acrylics and graphite on panel, $899 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. I accept paypal, venmo, personal checks and payment plans.  Inquiries may always come to me.
This painting is a very personal one. The figure is myself, as a child, inspired by a school photo. I was so lost (and not because the photographer made me take off my glasses for the picture) - aware that I was different and convinced (wrongly so, I might add) that this was very much not ok. If I could go back to Little Kim, I would tell her to own her story and let her heart shine more brightly. I would teach her about spirit guides, tell her that intuition is a fabulous navigator, and being 4 eyed was not a curse.

And I'd whisper in her ear that she was, and will continue to be, an artist with every breath she takes.

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

9/11 changed Americans forever in so many ways. It saddens me that my children grew up in a world laced with terrorism, ongoing wars and increasing violence. My oldest was in Kindergarten, The Caped Crusader was 3 and The Princess just a baby. They saw friends' parents/neighbors head off to war, practiced active shooter drills at school and were bombarded with conflict in an increasingly divided world. Today I mourn more than the lives lost to the senseless acts of terror. I also mourn the lives changed, forever, and the combative path our world spiraled further down.

"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,
Warmly, Kim
