"Ether," 24" in diameter, acrylic on cradled panel, $1800 plus s&h when available. Reach out to me if you are interested and I can add you to my First Dibs Collector's Club. First Dibbers get advance access to new work like Ether, before she is offered publicly. I currently have 6 paintings in the First Dibs space..... 

she took me for a ride, this one

as a painting that pushes the boundaries should. I try to do something new with each piece - I call these explorations my "what ifs" - and there were a number of them in Ether that sounded fantastic to ask, but were bears to resolve.

Like what if the dandelion flowers and leaves were of differing scale? and what if I allowed the pencil lines to become as prominent as the brushwork. And what if I push the idea of an equine shape into nothingness (like air) - how far can I go without losing the sense that she is a horse?

What ifs are a key component of my teaching style. I encourage my students to listen to their work and discover their own what ifs to explore - by doing so they learn what kind of things to add to their toolboxes as they develop their own signature style.

I just posted a video lesson on Ether, walking through the various challenges Ether presented to me and documenting how I resolved them, as well as recognizing some of my own bad habits and how to work around them. You can learn more about becoming one of my online students on my patreon, where I host membership based instruction designed to help artists find their style.

Thanks so much for following along with my art journey, warmly, Kim

Tabby Kit

"Tabby Kit," 5" x 7", acrylics on a museum quality panel, depicting a tiny little orange striped guy from Morgue File . This painting can be yours for $289, which includes s&h inside the US. And in case you didn't see it, a little doodle of him is also available for sale here . 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

Please also note that I mis identified the substrates in three of the paintings from the original announcement - with the exception of Bare, the taller piece on gallery wrapped canvas, the others a

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
