KM2463 Intermission (still life, ballet, toe shoes)

At Brushstrokes Studio Gallery here in Denver, we are planning a show called "Identity Theft" where each of the 3 of us paints the other's specialty. I drew my partner Anita, so will be doing a show of still life and roosters. Here is my first still life of one of my favorite ballet toe shoes. Oh how I would love to be able to have one dance, full of grace and poise but think that at my stage of life I best stay with painting my favorite things.

KMD2464 Curious (nature, cows, cattle, animals)


There is something so heartwarming about a cow's gentle gaze. I'm sure that ranchers would think I am romanticizing these wonderful creatures but what can I say? I am a city girl and far removed from the ranch life. I am just an artist who loves to paint all living creatures.

KMD2462 Fall's Rich Colors (fall, colorful, landscape, nature)

I am working on a commission of an Aspen scene and my client loved the colors in this particular piece so I thought it would be fun to do this as a daily painting. I am so passionate for our Colorado fall colors that I can't imagine surviving the New England colors!

KMD2460 Red Crested Cardinal ( bird, nature, wildlife)

While having lunch at the Contemporary Art Museum in Honolulu we were visited by these colorful birds who entertained us throughout our idealic lunch out on the lawn in the fragrant Hawaiian air. This is a Red Crested Cardinal which is fairly common in Honolulu. Also known as the Brazilian Cardinal, it was introduced around 1930 from South America. It feeds on seeds, plant matter, insects and fruit and anything from an artists luncheon!

KMD2457 Peaceful Valley (landscape, mountains, summer)


It was amazing to be driving into this valley near Ohio Pass in Colorado last summer. We were in and out of magnificent fast moving storms, so much hail that we would have to pull off the road to wait them out and then the sun would come out leaving pictures like this one.

KMD2456 Vibrant Splendor by Kit Hevron Mahoney (landscape, contemporary, oil)

I haven't been posting for awhile. It seems all the daily paintings I have done lately are not up to my standards hence I didn't post, perhaps an "artist block" or being very busy with lots of activity at the studio these days. Anyway I really was pleased with the abstract quality of this piece. I was drawn to the brilliant colors of the foreground and have expressed this as a "colorist" in my rendering.

KMD2450 Red Hot Hibiscus by Kit Hevron Mahoney (floral, Hibiscus, flower)

It's hard to resist the brilliant red Hibiscus flower to photograph and paint. I treasure this flower that grows so abundantly in the tropics as it colors the world for only a day before passing the torch to the next bud.
