Black Cat

Yes, I know you were regalled with equines last week, and I promised some dogs, but today belonged to cats. The sun was warm and strong, the best kind for basking, and I got to thinking that it's been nearly a year since I helped my Miah cross the bridge, so a black cat seemed to be in order.

FROM TOP: "Black Cat, Green Eyes," 6" x 8", $324 and "Glancing Sunlight," 4" x 8"; both acrylic on canvasboard, depicting a black cat in the sunlight. Inquiries may always come to me.

Both SOLD.
This is Sing-Song, who belongs to a friend of mine, who, surprise!, is another artist. "Glancing Sunlight" is my gift to Donna as a thank you for the use of her black cat photos, which translated so very nicely to paint. (There's another one which I will take on at a future date).
What else is up? Hmm. let's see....
  • I am the guest blogger on Horse Artist Carrie Lewis's painting blog this week.
  • My painting "Black" was honored with 3rd place at Dancing Horse Farm's 3rd Annual Equine Art Show opening this past weekend.
  • The Equinest featured a recap of last week's Derby Paintings on Saturday.
  • Similar to the Kentucky Derby pARTY on last Friday, Carrie Lewis and I will be launching a virtual pARTy for the Preakness - this one being open to any artists' wishing to participate. Stay tuned to The Virtual pARTy for details.
  • I've eaten close to a 1/2 pound of old Easter egg Whoppers that an unfortunate child stashed in the studio. Silly rabbit thought their candy would be safe in here?! not!
  • My son came home from today's track meet with a low grade fever, general aches and pains, and lots of snot. We're thinking this is payback for the swine flu jokes we've been cracking (and I give him HUGE kudos for running despite feeling like yech - he's a truly neat kid.)
Is that enough? If not, I'm sure I'll come up with something tomorrow.....
Until then, THANK YOU for sharing my artwork with your friends and family.
I promise a dog tomorrow,


  1. I'm ecstatic beyond words to have a Kimberly painting! You did not have to do that! But I'm so glad you did. Wonderful job painting Sing Song. She's such a little bull dog of a cat and you caught that perfectly! Your Miah was so beautiful...

Lashes and Corkscrews, Buckskin Horse

"Lashes and Corkscrews," 5" x 8", buckskin tobiano curly horse portrait, acrylic on board, $289 to the first taker. Do I see any hands? Inquires to . I really DID intend to paint today, but things got out of hand quickly. I think it was the Snickers bar breakfast that me going in the wrong direction right off the bat. Then the mid-morning helping of caramel corn followed by a Kit-Kat lunch.... straight downhill from there. For the last hour I have had my palette open and the brushes out, but trick-or-treaters are coming thick and heavy, and it's becoming very clear that I will NOT be finishing the sheltie paintings tonight (so sorry JB - they are coming, though!!). Instead I'll share with you a piece I did last week for an art competition. I won't find out about the juror's decision until December, but in the meanwhile, please enjoy Percy, my friend's new gelding. Isn't he a dear?! Be sure to make some time


"Dove 3," 11" x 14", acrylics and pencil on stonehenge paper, small white margin on edges (not pictured), $399 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. Inquiries may always come   to me . In between working on commissions, I am continuing my own learning via mentoring sessions with   Anne Siems . I'm also taking   an online workshop with Stanka Kordic.   This piece was a eureka sort of painting in that it begins to meld what I am trying to learn from both these extraordinary women. Someone asked me recently why I study with other artists. It's because I'm never fully satisfied with what I know how to do. There's always people better than me at something or another, and I want to try to peek inside their brain to figure out how they weave their magic. Then I can adapt that to my own goals and style. It would be boring to paint the same way, every day, for eternity. I want to evolve and grow. Always. (and if you feel the same way, maybe you want to   v
