New Painting: Rolling Hills


Rolling Hills, 30"x24" original painting, acrylic on flat panel (she will require framing), sold (thank you so very much!).  Link to purchase prints is herePlease reach out with any questions.

This is the final painting featured in my Intuitive Painting online workshop.** I created three pieces during the filming of this course, all originating from the same idea (a fusion of Bear with the California landscape), each one remarkably different and carrying her own distinctive personality. Also worth noting, this is a rare landscape oriented Momma Bear piece - they usually are portrait format.

In addition to naked panels, I brought this one, containing a very loose color study of fall colors I did in October of last year, not knowing what I was going to paint overtop her. In the first day of drawing and planning designs, when I began layering my bear contour drawings together, suddently I knew what I was going to do. I flipped the painting on it's side and sketched two bears overtop. The original design, gold and yellows in the middle surrounded by blues and greens, steered the bulk of the color choices. A conversation started right away - I saw trees, hills, sky and ocean blues, the colors of the redwood forest, sunrises, sunsets, wildfires, all buried inside the looser marks from the fall landscape that originated in my midwest neighborhood. And thus Rolling Hills was born.

She can be viewed up close, in a room setting, with a link to purchase reproductions, over  on my website.

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
“Rapt (Shadow),” from the Larger than Life series, 16”x22”, acrylic black lab mixed breed pet portrait on gallery wrapped canvas, $699. Inquiries to . SOLD. This is Shadow, who went missing on Sunday night. He belongs to a friend of mine, and has been a fixture in our community for many years. Errant fireworks scared the silly old guy into running off, and his family is busy searching for him. (If you happen to be in the Lake Orion/Oakland County area and have seen Shadow, please call 248-391-0867 or 248-391-6817) I’m confidant that he is safe (somewhere!) and awaiting discovery, but meanwhile, couldn’t help myself from posting his portrait as today’s dog a day painting . He’s constantly on my mind, and probably will remain so, until he finds his way back home. Hug your four legged guys while you can! Thanks, as always, for looking. And for sharing these paintings with friends and family, Kim Kimberly Kelly Santini dis
