NEW PAINTING Vixen

 

"Vixen," 30"x40"x1-1/2", acrylic on panel, $2400 plus s&h when available, but first she is heading out into the world for a bit (ie exhibitions). Reach out to me if you are interested in Vixen and I can add you to my First Dibs Collector's Club. First Dibbers receive priority purchasing when it comes to my new work.

this piece started out as a demo for my online students


and then she took on a life of her own. Sometimes demos go sideways and wonky. It's the nature of having to articulate what one is doing while one is doing. That makes it more difficult (for me at least) to hit the flow state and really let loose, and I believe that it's here in this magical state where the roots of some of my best paintings lay.

So I was super excited to see all the promise Vixen still held after two hours of painting and talking.

And the following painting session, when she grew stronger, I created another lesson video of her, just to further elaborate on the bits she was teaching me (yup, I learn from every single one of my paintings).

The last week or so I've been picking away at minor shifts and changes. And today I added the final touch - a blue jay feather on the left hand side/cradled edge of the piece, who's color is bleeding around to the top of the painting.

Vixen will also show up in my next lesson, a vlog where I outline the pieces that have crossed my easel the previous 2 weeks, and share insight on them. I'll film this bit tomorrow.

Meanwhile, she's off to the varnishing table where she'll get all dressed up for an exhibition.

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

These pieces will be available for purchase at noon eastern January 31, 2022, via   the Available Paintings page on my website . Please read further for details. 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
