Inktober - Your 2022 Art Calendar

I've been recording the process of my Inktober drawings this year, that has been interesting and different. It's fun telling a very short story with each drawing. You can hear the stories with each drawing here. This is my 5th year of Inktober. Sometimes I give the drawings away, sometimes (often) they turn into full paintings, sometimes (like last year) they inspire a WHOLE NEW collection of paintings!   I don't love this year's drawings, so far, but I'm just warming up :) Here is a video sampling of the first 5. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~     I have official photographs of...

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...

New Inspiration & Donations 🧡

►Inspiration & Round Paintings  ►Auction Results  ►New Combos - Most Loved Choices  ►2022 Calendar Pre-Order   What has inspired YOU lately?

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...

Prioritizing & Son 🧡

Here’s an example, can you relate?
I’ll be painting in the studio – then I’ll decide to go fill my teacup. I’ll go in and the teapot water is cold or gone, so I’ll fill it and flip the button.

While it is heating up, I’ll put a couple kitchen-y things away, see a dirty towel and take it to the laundry room. There, I’ll remember that I have a load drying, so I check it. Re-fluff or even fold. Put some clothes away.

Then, when putting some towels away in the bathroom I’ll realize there is a little mess, so I’ll take care of that. I’ll remember I want to start a load, so I’ll run upstairs to see if there are any dirties up there. I’ll discover lights on – turn them off. Open blinds for plants  dust something with a piece of laundry…

Son Series ♥

I knew I wanted these four paintings to be unique – as this feeling of hatching young men into the world is unique…
I WILL have prints of these on my wall, as a celebration of the journey and a reminder of the TRUST I/we must have, and most importantly of the JOY that is coming up for my boys and YOUR boy(s)...
