I have a gifted wife with a short attention span. What that means is that I regularly get surprised by her talents. When we were dating, she was recording her first album as a singer-songwriter.
She continued to pursue her writing in Northern California, but that talent went into hibernation once Evie arrived into our lives.
When we moved to Nashville, most people thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get back into it. Not Kymberlee. She decided to start painting again, something she hadn’t done for around 20 years. She paints landscapes with oil and almost all her paintings feature water, oceans especially. Here is a gallery of some of her most recent work. Click to enter a full window slide show.
These paintings were done in a studio with pictures she has taken, but her ultimate goal is to be a plein air painter, someone who paints nature outdoors.
To be honest, I’m actually a bit jealous. She is mostly self-taught, and her works are already starting to draw attention. She has her first show next month, and has actually pre-sold her first painting! I’m enjoying watching the success, even if it means I’m often a painting widower! I am a lucky man.
If you’re interested in seeing them in person, the show will kick off Saturday with an artist talk, March 7th, at 6:30pm at the St. Bernard building in Nashville.
I am so impressed by Kymberlee’s artwork and the fact that she is having her first art show. When we met back in college, she was an art major, so I know this has been a huge passion of hers, and I’m thrilled she found the time to pursue it in addition to starting her private practice in Nashville.
