NEW DRAWING Family

  Family, image 33"x45", paper a bit larger, mixed media on paper, $800 plus s&h to   the first asking nicely . Will ship rolled. I can also include a magnetic scroll style hanging system, but recommend ultimately this piece be set behind glass for preservation. And of course, questions can always come   to me. I started 2 of these large scale drawings last year.    They were pinned to my studio wall, and every week or so I'd sit with them for a bit and add marks. The accumulation of layers over time created quite a historied feel to the surface that I quite like. My original intent was to include them in the Fox Medicine show last October, but they had other plans, clearly. One is still in process, but this one, Family, is ready to head out into the world. This is a wonderfully scaled, nuanced and soothing piece. She will be amazing in someone's home or office. Here is the link to purchase . Thanks so much for following along with - and supporting - my art journe

NEW PAINTING Obsidian

  Obsidian, 24x30x1-1/2, acrylic on Bara Woodshaping handmade cradled panel, $2000 plus s&h to   the first asking nicely . And of course, questions can always come   to me. I am exploring the depth inside an earthy palette   which by no coincidence also mirrors the view through my windows. This January is a bit different than previous ones because we have no snow, but I am fascinated by the range of browns and grays to be found in the foliage and frozen ground. Also, I filmed the making of this piece in real time and am editing the footage down to manageable length. I plan to offer a live paint and lecture experience via zoom in early February. Stay tuned. Here is the link to purchase. Thanks so much for following along with - and supporting - my art journey, warmly, Kim

NEW PAINTING Larimar

  Larimar, 24"x30", acrylic on a flat panel, $1300 plus s&h to   the first asking nicely . Questions can always come   to me. Do you know that I love pocket stones and crystals?    I always have a few on me. A couple weekends back I acquired the most delicious little slice of   larimar   and she's been with me ever since.  This particular painting has been in the works since 2017 - most recently returning to my easel a few weeks back for a couple new layers of marks. She wasn't a problem child so much as I had very little clarity as to what she was trying to tell me. Now I can see that her collection of blues was leading me in this particular direction, to masses of sky and varied light, and I'm sure it's no coincidence that my little stone showed up to mark the occasion and inspire her title. Here is the link for  LARIMAR . Thanks so much for following along with - and supporting - my art journey, warmly, Kim PS   new art SOJOURNaling lesson   dropped yes

NEW PAINTING Floret

  Floret, 24x24x1, acrylic on a circular cradled panel, $1800 plus s&h to   the first asking nicely . And of course, questions can always come   to me. I have a couple 24" circular paintings in process    and a few larger ones currently being built. I absolutely love working in the round - and hanging a round piece on the wall brings an added touch of elegance to a space. This painting is made up of pigtails, cloud watching and the smell of freshly cut grass. Along with pony dreams. Somebody please buy Floret before I change my mind and opt to make her mine! Here is the link to purchase. Thanks so much for following along with - and supporting - my art journey, warmly, Kim

NEW PAINTING Monarch

  Monarch, 24x30, acrylic on panel, $1300 plus s&h to   the first asking nicely . And of course, questions can always come   to me. I like to do something new with each painting So Monarch was no extension - her palette might look familiar (Spector and Obsidian were done with the same colors, a limited palette made up of earthy tones). I wanted to add a bit more variation with blues here - to allude to sky spaces and give a pop for those butterflies. So I added a manganese blue - just a smidge of it - and warmer yellows. I ended up with the most soothing gray greens. I'm really digging this palette. You can view a larger image of Monarch  here,   check out the details, even see her installed in a room.  Now if I could just manifest a literal blue sky here in Michigan, we'de be all set! Thanks so much for following along with - and supporting - my art journey, warmly, Kim PS do you know about the live q&a zoom events I'm doing twice monthly? check it out via the Watc

NEW PAINTING Spector

  Spector, 24x30x1-1/2, acrylic on a spectacular handmade Bara Woodworking panel, no need to frame, $2000 plus s&h to   the first asking nicely . And of course, questions can always come   to me. a ghost of a past painting This is a rework of a piece from last August. Hindsight and fresh eyes enabled me to see potential in repainting some of the passages of the older piece. While I loved what she was, because of the creative growth I've made the past six months, I was able so envision - and manifest - significant change. The piece is all the stronger for it, too. She feels more mysterious and possesses greater power. She will be utterly gorgeous hanging in your home. Can't you picture it? You can view a larger image of Spector  here , check out the details, even see her installed in a room.  And if you are curious about the changes I made, I created two lessons on this piece for my online students.   Come join my online classroom The Magic Space   and learn more about my pr

NEW PAINTING Resolute

  Resolute, 16x20, acrylic on a gallery wrapped oval stretched canvas, sides painted so no need to frame, $960 plus s&h to   the first asking nicely . And of course, questions can always come   to me. it was important to me  (for some unknown reason) that the first painting of this year be a rabbit. Folklore claims that saying "rabbit rabbit" first thing on the first day of the month will bring luck, so perhaps I was projecting this belief to my portfolio wishes for the new year. (and having just signed my second painting of 2023, I can say that it might be working!) You can view a larger image of Resolute   here , check out the details, even see her installed in a room.
