KMD2607 One Spring Morning (urban, Europe, urbanscape, floral, garden)

I have painted this scene before in a different composition (it was 48"x60") so it is fun to do a small version as well. There are some scenes that I love to paint more than once with different view points and this is one of them! This scene was found several years ago in Germany. We were driving thru a small town and I remember coming to a screeching halt (luckily no one was behind me) to get out and photograph it.

KMD2606 Solo (Pet, dog, Boxer dog,animal)

I am so enamored with Solo, my brother and sister in law's boxer. She has so many expressions that just scream to be put to canvas, but then I am so partial to Boxers as I grew up with them and know what beautiful friends they are. Solo has such a sad yet regal look in this particular piece.

KM2596 Dancing With Vibrance (abstact, floral, original acylic painting)

This abstract is the 2nd in a series that I started and posted the first one several months ago. These are so joyous to create with the vibrant colors, textures and the challenge of working with a lot of negative space as part of my composition.

KME2589 Guinea in Blue by Kit Hevron Mahoney (Encaustic painting)

Finally, I have some encaustic paintings to show. It took awhile to set up a studio and start experimenting. I did this little painting inspired by a piece I did in a workshop in Texas last January. I stayed with a good friend and fellow artist, Julie, in Boerne, TX who has a Guinea Hen living on her property. She sent me these incredibly beautiful feathers that the unnamed Guinea leaves behind which I have immortalized.
It is a challenge to find time to experiment in the encaustics, abstracts and keep up with my regular painting these days but I love the challenge.
I have a little description of encaustic for those who are wondering what the hec it is!
Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid/paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used.
Encaustic painting was practiced by Greek artists as far back as the 5th century B.C. Click here for more history

KM2595 I Want to go Too (dogs, pets, animals)

While walking my dog Farley near the studio we passed these 3 dogs patiently waiting for their owner to return. I happened to have my camera and was able to capture this expressive scene. I love being able to capture a rare moment and put it on canvas.

KMD2594 Rocky Mountain High (landscape, mountains, Colorado)

At last, a moment to do one of my small daily paintings. I have been busy with some great commissions and experimenting with some abstract paintings. I am in a real period of exploration and just loving the new focus. I will be posting some of my new works soon. Meanwhile, this is a scene I have painted many times as it is a favorite Colorado area: the Maroon Bells Wilderness area.

KM2591 Steeping in Brillliance ( autumn, fall, landscape, waterscape)

I started this painting with large, thick brushstrokes but was unsatisfied with where it was going so I changed over to the palette knife and got a result that I am really happy with. I can't believe such a scene is in my backyard but this was found near my house last fall while walking my dog Farley. His insistence on a daily walk keeps me in shape and aware of the beautiful world around me!

KMD2590 Waiting to Sing (birds, waxwing, nature, original oil painting

With spring almost here I am now hearing symphonies of the birds singing. I don't even listen to my music while walking my dog in preference to the music of these great creatures announcing the arrival of spring.
I have been challenged by my painting partner on this painting as to whether this is a finished piece. Let me know your vote and I will tell you ours!
