Happy Birthday, Sharie! Thanks for being the most brilliant assistant! The sale of this painting will go towards your well-deserved vacation. In honor of the fact that you can multi-task like nobody's business, I've combined several of my past themes into today's painting. So today, relax, enjoy a good book, (even if it's a homeschooling book you've been wanting to catch up on), enjoy the spring flowers, (I'm sure somebody will give you flowers today), enjoy the sunshine (it's sunny somewhere in the world), enjoy a sip (OK, maybe save that for later), ignore the kids, (but don't ignore this post...get a paypal button on this painting!) Have a fantastic multi-tasking birthday! You're the best! OX, Kimberly
Kimberly!! What a sweet surprise to wake up to! With a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes...Thank you!! hugs, Sharie
Now down to business... 6" x 6" oil on gessoed panel sold

Thanks to you, my supportive fans, I'm able maintain this little obsession. And, I really could not do it without you. I just want you to know how incredibly grateful I am. From the collectors who have just one special painting, to those of you who have 10 plus(!), to the admirers who write encouraging emails or simply leave comments, thank you, thank you.
To give chair lovers everywhere a better chance to buy their favorites, we're going to revisit the eBay auction house, so dust off your Joie De Vivre bidding paddles (again!), starting tomorrow.
I know not everyone is comfortable with the bidding process, but if anyone out there has ever thought about it, but didn't know how to get started, just email and my lovely assistant, Sharie, will be happy to give you a little tutorial.
Does anyone else have good memories of this iconic kitchen stool?
This is dedicated to my good buddy, Melissa. We shared a historic mansion while we were in college (okay, so it was just the first floor, but still!), and the kitchen was where we met up at the end of the day. We often say, "Oh, if this chair could talk!" (and if it does, we'll kill it!)
---NUTSHELL BIO--- I earned my BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 1999 and participated in the New York Studio Program through Parsons. I've schlepped a backpacker's easel across Europe trying to connect to my "painter ancestors"--they weren't kidding about the light in south of France. And if I ever win an Oscar for painting I will thank Vermeer, Kahlo, Hopper, Richter and Barney, to name just a few.
