Painting On Purpose AND Silent Story

One thing I’ve realized when I drip tidbits of Silent Story out is that MOST of us have a story like this… we’ve all felt betrayed or forgotten at one point or another. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. Because this is a self-imposed project, I rely only on myself. I have no one to blame but me. For delays, mistakes, dropped balls. I must be driven from within, driven from a visualization of holding the sample copy in my hands, and then, the final product. And I am. Learn much more and reserve YOUR copy of the Silent Story...

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.

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...
