NEW PAINTING The Edge of Night


"The Edge of Night," 24"x36"x1-1/2"", acrylic mixed media on deep cradled panel. Night will be $2000 plus s&h when available. But you need a little patience, as she's a candidate for a juried exhibition. If you can't stand the wait, message me and I'll get those results to you as soon as I have them myself.


is a huge part of my process. It's a weird thing to explain, how I bring a painting to life. An idea shows up and I invite her to the easel. Sometimes her visit is quick. Other times she can overstay her welcome - I think these are the ideas that show up before I have the skills to bring do them justice.

Such was the case with Night - this painting literally took years to finish. I would carry her to a certain point, then realize I was lost, so she'd get set aside until I knew what was to come next. 

That knowing is a strange thing - it's the sort of knowing one has in a dream state. You can't touch the source, but you feel it there, right in your gut, as though you've always carried it. 

So when someone asks me how long a painting takes or exactly what the spark was behind the painting, I really don't have an answer. I've spent my whole life learning how to do this, but I also feel like there is an ancient wisdom or knowing that I tap into. 

Thanks so much for your interest in my artwork - and for supporting me in my journey, warmly, Kim

Inquires may come directly to me .  Although it certainly doesn't FEEL like spring here (snow and ice and wind chills, brr!), I can tell that spring is coming. The mercury is rising a wee bit each day and the days are getting longer and brighter. Over the weekend we drove with the moonroof open just to feel the sun's meager and oh-so-very-welcome warmth (although the heat in the car was cranked, too, in the interest of full disclosure!). I wanted to work with spring-like colors today, and this little guy was still on my mind , so I grabbed a small panel and got to work. Of course, I also have Poppy to finish and some changes to make to another po

It's been wonderfully crazy the last 10 months or so, as eager collectors have been buying my work, often while it remained unfinished. While I do truly love that the paintings were/are resonating so deeply, I also realized that I needed to institute some changes in how I offered them for sale. Selling immediately wasn't serving my newly discovered desire to savor what the p
