Garden View

I do love this garden. It's informal and never up to anyone's standard of design or exceptional plant specimens, but I find daily surprises that I could never have orchestrated. Photographs are a way of isolating the little gems, and yet I wish I could give you the experience of walking around and within the transparent room of this fenced garden. Try to hear the chorus of crickets, and see the occasional deer with spotted fawns and the chickadees that inhabit the birdhouse in the spring.

In the Distance...

I have a new book called In the Distance, Small Beings.  It has reproductions of 24 small acrylic paintings.
I also have a new edition of Life Dancing Life, printed on heavier paper than the first printing.  

Both can be purchased at Lulu for $35.

If you would rather come to the studio I will have a limited number of copies available and you can see the original artwork as well as many other paintings. Just send me a message and we'll find a time.

Thanks - you are the patron! Kim

The Landscape of Thought

My friend Judy Wood has recently been putting her paintings in the forest and this inspired me to try some new places to display. So here are a few paintings next to other favorite objects.

Will this replace the gallery?

Arts Center of Yates County

Yes it is true, we have a show in Penn Yan, now through June 6. 
Just an hour away from Trumansburg. A nice drive to the other side of Seneca Lake.
Fernando is showing Stone Poems, and Kim is showing oil and acrylic paintings.

A Book of Small Paintings

I've been painting in a book block over the semester break.  There are 24 acrylic paintings in this 9x12" book block.  I'm hoping to put a cover on soon.  But in the meantime I've also been designing a printed version.
Here are a few examples.

Life Dancing Life

Life Dancing Life

My newest book, Life Dancing Life, is a recent search into what it means to be human.  I approached this drawing project as if I didn't know what the human being was and I had to look carefully to see what common traits appeared. The book contains 21 ink drawings. You can purchase the book on Lulu or come to the studio - I have a few on hand.
