Round Paintings & Prints

I have been so inspired by circles lately! And I just love seeing them all clustered together :) What has been inspiring YOU this week?   I have been creating a small series of one-of-a-kind original round paintings on 8x8 inch paper and releasing them first to my private KmBerggren Community on Facebook (you can ask to join, especially since something really neat is coming to that page this week!). Then I release them onto my Instagram page. There have been 10 so far, and today I have the 11th to share with you!   I’m taking buyers for these pieces...

De-Cluttering AND Creating - Tips!

There was a large period of my life where my first morning thought was “What area can I declutter today?” This was well before Marie Kondo came on the scene :)   My favorite books were The Joy Of Less and The Simple Living Guide. Discovering simplicity and minimalism blew my mind - Oh to have words to describe how I felt!   Do you have this feeling, too? Did you get so excited when Marie's book came out, like I did? After I read it, I did a HUGE purge of 'mementos' I'd been holding onto for years, and the feeling afterwards was like...

Art & Kind Words ♥

I turn to my Facebook Group first, when I want to connect or ask a question.

Struggling With Likeness & 2022 Calendars 🧡

Struggling With Likeness & 2022 Calendars 🧡

Today's Notes: ►Capturing Likeness►2022 Calendars are ready for pre-order!   It's fun to be inspired by specific families, their stories and their photos. I have created many 100s of custom paintings and have had clients send zero photos (just descriptions) up to 190 photos! Sometimes mothers share full birth stories, and others share only names and/or ages.   I draw from what I get AND from what I have inside. It's a challenge that I like. Sometimes I have 25 customs in process at a time, and sometimes just one. They all get their fair share of my time and heart, I...

New Inspiration & Donations 🧡

►Inspiration & Round Paintings  ►Auction Results  ►New Combos - Most Loved Choices  ►2022 Calendar Pre-Order   What has inspired YOU lately? Inspiration is such a funny thing – it smacks us upside the head at the weirdest quickest moments. Last week I added some round icons to my web banner (see below), and I loved them! Then one of my favorite collectors drew my attention back to them a few days ago and inspiration HIT! I had an urge to do some round paintings! I love seeing my paintings cropped into circles (thus stickers, magnets and pendants), so this was bound...
