Where To Find Unique Acrylic Paintings — My Painted Ladies
Hi There….. Are you a fan of art, or do you practice art, maybe? Have you ever made acrylic paintings?
I haven’t, but I have made art with pencils, ink, soft pastels, watercolor, and even oil painting but never tried to make acrylic paintings. You may wonder why on earth not? 😦
Well, starting as a young girl, I took several art classes until I had enough and stopped. Perhaps it was just not my thing? 😕
I love art, but it brought me things I just wasn’t looking for. Am I talking in riddles? Perfect, that was my intention. 😏
In the last art classes I took, there was this foolish man who literally had an eye on me. I was working on a drawing in soft pastel, and I didn’t even notice he was drawing my portrait. 😶
I took it as a compliment that he found me interesting enough to draw. If only it would have been just that. Next lesson, I could feel his eyes on me again, and the next, and the next. 😵
At the annual New Year’s celebration, everybody had been drinking wine, except me. So there I was, in the middle of a bunch of drunks, when he asked me for a kiss. Who was I to break his heart, so we passionately kissed for a few minutes? 😎
Ah, did you believe that? Come on, you have been reading too many romance novels. I declined, and that was the last time they saw me there. 😳
End of story, so high time to tell you about Kim, my Instagram friend, who makes acrylic paintings. 😍
I’m Kim, a full-time artist currently working on a visual story of the lives of three friends in acrylic paintings. The “My Painted Ladies” series shares the unique experiences these colorful girls find in life… My aim is for viewers to find their own life connections with My Painted Ladies. This creates a more personal connection between the viewer and myself.
I have created 43 acrylic paintings that I have professionally scanned to be made into different sized vinyl prints. Along with the prints, I create spiral notebooks, vinyl stickers, notecards, and Christmas cards.
I am currently working on a My Painted Ladies’ coloring book, which I hope will be available this summer. My dream is to continue the ladies’ adventures.
How it began
I just started My Painted Ladies in December 2019, right before the pandemic started in full force. Ever since my childhood, I have been creating art. I received a BFA from Wright State University in 1998 and in 2004 received a Master’s in Art Education at the University of Dayton.
After teaching art for 10 years, my husband encouraged me to retire from teaching and work entirely on my artwork. This had been a dream of mine for a long time!
What really inspired me to create My Painted Ladies was memories and what an important part of life they are to us. Memories connect us in different ways and are like a blueprint of a person’s being.
Right now I’ve been accepted to the Americana Festival, 27 N Main St, Centerville Ohio on July 4, 2022. Hopefully, it will happen, because I was so disappointed in 2020 and 2021 when the Art vendors got canceled because of covid-19.
Thank you, Kim, for sharing your story with us. I have been following you on Instagram for a very long time and see how you progressed. I admire your painting skills. Just click this link if you also want to follow her on Instagram. 😍
