and another wolf quietly pads in

Last week got off to a rough start. I couldn't shake the sensation that I wasn't prepared or capable, for whatever reason. It was unsettling. 

I recalled the powerful dream I had a couple weeks ago where I regained my footing by leaning into the essence of a wolf. I decided to paint her again, this time as a beacon, a reminder that I have everything I need inside of me.

Creating Amber did the same thing as the dream, it gave me strength. Doesn't she feel like an ancient oak tree, wise and sheltering?

Like Honeysuckle (the first wolf), Amber is also on a handmade oak panel from Bara Woodshaping. Their panels are akin to finely made furniture. The graining in the surface is subtly exquisite and I have left the sides unpainted to further highlight the quality. The bottom of the painted side of the panel is mostly bare, which lends to a beautiful growth visual contained inside the wolf's form. The entire piece will be sealed with a varnish to protect the full, exposed surfaces.

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

Figment 3," 18" x 24", acrylics and graphite on panel, $799 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. I accept paypal, venmo, personal checks and payment plans. Inquiries may always come   to me . I am thinking about the elements, and wondering aloud (and with my paints) as to whether I can paint something that contains all of them. Spirit. Fire. Air. Water. Earth. This one is a step closer in that direction. Thanks so very much for following along on 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 read further for details. I have decided to let Snow Globe go. I love her to pieces, but have no place to hang her and she deserves eyeballs. So my loss is your gain! 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
