Rococo, 24"x30", acrylic on a flat panel, $1300 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. Questions can always come to me.

I am obsessed with these billowy skies

My favorite art history professor despised Rococo paintings. They quickened my heart, but I pushed that away as he berated their sentimental, over the top, flouncy layers of clouds, foliage and fluttering textiles. After all, he was the expert, right? 

Recently I rediscovered them and remembered how much they pleased me. Apologies, Dr. van Liere, but I can no longer ignore their pull.

Here is the link for Rococo.

This one was also inspired by Peter Sis. I cannot get enough of his picture book for adults The Conference of the Birds. Each spread is lush with various design ideas. Substitute rabbit for bird, add my own brushwork and color sensibilities and some Rococo skies, and, voila (Steal Like an Artist, by Austin Kleon, not to be confused with copyright infringement, by the way).

Thanks so much for your interest in my artwork,
All my best, 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
