Top 10 List for 2014

Well, as the year draws to a close I find myself thinking on the last 12 months. It's been a difficult year for many people I love. For some I wish I could turn back the clock, for others I wish I could speed it up. This is life. 
I browsed some quotes regarding New Years and here are two I'd like to share:
An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves. ~Bill Vaughan
And ye, who have met with Adversity's blast,
And been bow'd to the earth by its fury;
To whom the Twelve Months, that have recently pass'd
Were as harsh as a prejudiced jury -
Still, fill to the Future! and join in our chime,
The regrets of remembrance to cozen,
And having obtained a New Trial of Time,
Shout in hopes of a kindlier dozen.
~Thomas Hood
And now it is time for my annual Top 10 list. These are my favourite paintings from the past year. A very sincere thank you to everyone reading this and for the comments you may leave throughout the year. It means so much and keeps me going. I truly wish you a warm, secure, exciting 2015.

Peace and Love

Well, today is December 24th. Another Christmas Eve is upon us. Whatever you celebrate, I extend the warmest wishes of love and peace to you and all those you love! Because in my books, that's what it all boils down to.
I've been taking some time off to be with the ones I love but here are a few Christmas themed paintings from the past couple of years. Enjoy and thank you so much for being interested in what I do. It means a lot. xo, Kim

New Arrival

So I had seen another artist post this (I can't remember who) and I thought it looked like a book I needed to read. It is called: ART/WORK: Everything You Need to Know (and Do) As You Pursue Your Art CareerIf I had my pick I'd stay in the studio all day long and not deal with the business stuff one iota. But  we all know that is completely unrealistic. Darn > : P How about you? What are your favourite art business books? What's the most important thing you've learned?
