HHS LogoKim's Gallery

Updated: September 6, 2013

Custom portraits, painted on sweatshirts, frameable materials etc.

Each portrait is done by using a clear photo of a favorite person or animal and is a unique tribute to them. All hand-painted portraits on sweatshirts are machine washable. It is very helpful to have more than one reference picture to do a portrait. Portraits are done in watercolor, gouache ("go-ash", like watercolor paint but with more texture and more vivid colors), acrylic, pencil, pen & ink or fabric paint if they are on clothing. Click on the painting below for my sample page. If you like the portraits you see and would like to inquire about ordering one please email me with any questions at hhstables09@gmail.com. I am happy to ship portraits. Payment must be made in advance.

John BlueJohn Blue
This was my 15 minutes of fame as an artist ... Here's John Blue, a former Boston Bruins goaltender. After painting these pictures (which were practice for thoe one and only watercolor course I ever took) I gave the one on the right to John. I used a picture from a newspaper for reference to do these 18" x 24" watercolor paintings. I met John Blue at an autograph signing at a local sports center and he autographed the painting (I kept) for me. He was very touched and a few days later his father called me to thank me for the painting I gave him. He said he was going to hang it up with John's Olympic stuff.

To place an order:

If you are interested in portraits please e-mail me for quotes. Please plan time for these if they're gifts! I require pre-payment for those who wish to order via mail service. Due to my busy life on the farm and young "busy" son, portraits may take up to 6 months to complete. As of March, 2011, I can only take on new portraits if there is no time restriction, due to my very busy schedule. Thanks to anyone who has waited patiently for portraits before this announcement! Your patience is greatly appreciated!

I do portraits by photos only. You'll need to [e]mail me good, clear photo(s) of the subject to paint from. Thanks for stopping by!
