About Kimberly Powers in her own words:

“Painting for me is spontaneous and intuitive. I rarely begin with a set plan, and I prefer to let the work take me where it wants. I love working in layers, and often treat my oil paints like watercolors, adding depth and softness to the piece by slowly adding multiple coats of transparent, thin-washed paint. This method adds something raw, unrefined, and organic to the work which I find really appealing … Kimberly Powers Each layer I add brings its own emotion to the work. There is often a pattern. The piece begins with a leap of faith and the first shot of adrenaline that adding color to a white canvas always brings. I am confident and excited. Soon after, however, I have moments of doubt. What have I gotten myself into?! Can I do this?! This leads, inevitably, to a maze of frustration that I must find my way out of. I become tenacious. I become determined. And then … I give it up to god and give into inspiration. I trust in the process and I become soft. I rarely think about the technique, but let intuition lead the way. I fall in love.” Learn more about Kimberly Powers »
