NEW PAINTING Mother (Daydream 37)

"Mother (Daydream 37)," 24" x 30" x 1-1/2", mixed media (acrylics and graphite) on cradeled panel, $1299 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. I accept paypal, venmo and payment plans; inquiries may come directly to me. Thanks so very much.
I hesitate to title the majority of my Daydream paintings because I feel that guides viewers' perception and perhaps limits what they see inside a piece. And I debated this for days here, ultimately choosing a generic title, "Mother," that could itself become interpreted in a variety of ways, similar to the image. She, this painting, needed something more significant than just another number.

I'll keep the true meaning to myself. It's mostly important that I painted my story - it's not so important that I shout it out overtop everyone else's voice. Because we all have stories.

I'd love to know your interpretation, though, what do YOU see here?

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

"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.

"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,
