NEW PAINTING Warbler (Daydream 32)

"Warbler (Daydream 32)," 13" x 16", acrylics and graphite on wallpaper, $299 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. The rectangular section with the bird is the wallpaper itself; the remainder of the surface carried layers of marks laid down by me. The crease in the middle is part of the painting. This piece will need to be framed behind glass. I accept paypal, venmo, personal checks and payment plans.  Inquiries may always come to me.
I am intrigued by the addition of collage materials to my Daydream pieces. The conversation that happens between the painting itself and the collaged item is fascinating. But what happens when the collaged bit isn't collaged at all - it just looks that way? I'm figuring that part out right now.

This is a Ralph Lauren wallpaper remnant I picked up at a garage sale. The pattern, from 2006, is called Marlowe Floral Cinnabar. If you know how I might acquire additional bits of wallpaper (not necessarily this pattern, although because of the repeat, more of this would be very interesting to work with - you know how I love working in a series!!), please let me know. I'm a paint girl, and pretty clueless with respect to wallpaper acquisition.

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.

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

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,
