KMD2421 Montana Light (Landscape, barn, oil painting, Montana)


I took another break from China and painted this scene that I found in Montana several summers ago. The afternoon light was exquisite as the sun started down leaving long, warm shadows. I have painted this scene many times as it always takes me back to an incredible moment that was shared with my friend and fellow photographer Pat!

KM2419 Washington Park Boathouse (landscape, Denver, CO, lake, original oil)

This painting was done "plein air" at Washington Park here in Denver, Colorado. The boathouse in this painting is an historic landmark that was built in 1913. In winter, it served as a warming house for ice skaters. It is located on Smith Lake and has a two-story lakefront façade and an open pavilion over enclosed boat storage. Currently, in the summer, boats are rented out from the boathouse to paddle around and enjoy beautiful views around the lake.

KM2418 Mama's Little Helper (children, China, oil painting)

I had such fun painting this little Chinese girl who was helping her Mom with the daily chores. They were cutting and cleaning vegetables and so engrossed that this little one hardly noticed the sound of cameras firing off all around her from all the artists and photographers in our tour group. Although she sat on her haunches to help, I'm happy to report that her Mom was sitting in a chair! I can't wait to look through my reference for more of the children to paint. Doing some figurative work is a fun, new experience for me.

This painting is for sale in the 19th Annual Holiday Miniatures Show at Abend Gallery here in Denver and is sized 10"x8".

KM2417 Reaching Out (oil painting, child, China0

Everywhere I travel I am fascinated or even mesmerized by the little children, they are so pure and full of wonder. China was no exception and the parents were all so proud of the little ones, just beaming, as we photographed them.

KMD2416 This Little Piggy (original animal oil painting)

We found this cute little piglet with his siblings while venturing around the outlying villages of LiJiang on my China tour. All the other piglets were shy and ran out of sight while I photographed this fellow. It was amazing morning light that lit up his pink ears!

KMD2412 Just Glowing (Garden, floral original oil painting)


I have been so busy painting China for last Friday's show at Brushstrokes that I am finally coming up for air and have lots of new subject matter to explore in the days to come. This little floral scene is still China, at the end of the day in a marketplace where these mums were lit up from the setting sun.

KM2400 Glowing August Day ( landscape original oil, Montana, fall scene)

I haven't found time to paint my little ones as I am still painting for our upcoming show this Friday in addition to supplying my galleries with new work. This, of course, is not a is wonderful to have such a variety of venues to show my work and such variation in subject matter. I painted this for my gallery in Evergreen, Colorado: Evergreen Fine Art
I have painted this barn in a variety of compositions as it such a beautiful scene I found outside of Bigfork, Montana while visiting a few summers ago. It is available for sale from Evergreen Fine Art or online.
