Santa Fe Farmers Market


12x16 oil on stretched cotton canvas
$500 (email me if interested)

Again, I included people in my painting. I really enjoyed painting people in my New York Sidewalk Florist. On my last visit to Santa Fe, I went to their fall farmers market. The colors of the hand-dyed yarn hanging under the bright blue canopy caught my eye. I also knew this man would be an interesting character to paint. When painting a scene such as this I feel as though I am there again. I guess it is because I spend several days studying and painting all the details. You begin to see things you didn't notice before.

Nicely done, Kim. Strong sense of a fleeting moment. I can feel myself there.

I really like this one, Kim! You have done a very believable job on each of the figures - I especially love the dreadlocks! Really nice colors in this piece as well... you really seem to be hitting your stride these days with the paintings you are posting. Congratulations!

Kim! I loved seeing this painting at the SAVA show last night. You do wonderful work. So glad to have become acquainted. Hope it won't be long until I see you again.
