Winged, 15"x30" original painting, acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, image painted around the sides so no need to frame, $1300 plus s&h to the first asking nicely.  Link to purchase is below. Please reach out with any questions.

I love to work in layers. I start my paintings with a giant brush, gradually working from large marks to tighter ones. Recently I've begun asking myself in what other ways can I embrace the idea of "layered". The painting Winged is one of the results.

LAYER1:  A small fox kit sits on a nuanced, creamy ground, in profile. She is watching something rather attentively, but it is outside the picture frame, so the viewer has to guess at what has grabbed her attention.
LAYER 2:  She is partially obscured by a layer of butterfly specimens, the smallest and most delicate seated at the top of the winged totem.
LAYER 3:  The presence of the butterflies changes the fox's ground to billowy clouds, and, as if to accent that, they travel from mostly dark in value to barely there as they ascend upwards.
LAYER 4:  Conversely, the kit's feet, where they would connect with the earth, are soft edged, almost as if to deny she is resting on anything solid.
LAYER 5:  Fox represents cunning and intelligence, the butterfly metamorphosis - both providing doses of what could manifest change and revolution in the world.

This painting can be viewed up close, in a room setting, and even purchased on my website.  And because you are a First Dibber, this is your chance to make Winged yours before anyone else.

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
