People always ask me, why did you draw this, paint this? What are your thoughts? I wish I could say that I carefully planned each painting out, but that never happens. I sometimes have a direction that I want to go but that changes the minute I start the painting. For instance, I knew the colors I wanted to create in this piece, and I thought I would make my houses. But after the background paint went on, I immediatly drew "souls". (as I call them),,,,,,and why four of them? I don't know, they just seem to fit on the painting better that way.
So,,, then I think why did I paint these instead of houses, I'm not sure, but the answer is, is that I just "go with the flow". My paintings are in control of me, I'm never in control of them. I like it that way. So, my advise is to open yourself up, see what happens!

Is it a wool hat you ask? I've always been alergic to wool. I itch like crazy when I even go near it. I've never been able to wear wool sweaters, wool socks, or even cashmere. Oh the beauty of cashmere. Nope, I'm strictly a cotton girl.

One of the best things about receiving a card from Kim is her packaging. Everything is so tidyly arranged in a cute little envelope and tied with a danty string. Its hard to open it, as to not destroy the cuteness of it all, but inside awaits more illustration treasures. Kim is a wonderful artist, illustrator, photographer! Thank you Kim!

I found some canvases on sale at our University Bookstore. This measures 6 x 12 inches and I really like the size. It is perfect for my "Neighborhood" series. It is for sale in my shop. I also bought some new cobalt teal acrylics, which I love. I'm not sure if the background will look like teal on your monitor, but it does on mine.
