  1. Dearest Kim!
    I was so happy to “discover” your art website!! Wish I could have seen it earlier, being a life long admirer of your work as an actress, I mean , for many many years , more than 55..since I first saw you when I was a teen , in 1958, in” Vertigo”, which the more violent ( and repeated 20 times in my life!!) emotion I ever felt in a movie theater..and I never got over…..I had heard of your passion for painting, of your great talent, which I can , at last, admire , here…such a tecnique, but not only a technique, a true and beautiful inspiration!! I am so happy to see how” yourself” you are through your paintings and poems, faraway from all the “masks” of the “dream factory” , masks you wore , though, so magnificently, all along your life…I always knew that you were a beautiful soul, a magnificent human being, for your concern and tenderness for nature, life and other people..everything your painting reflects so deeply, such an empathy, such a sensitivity…I am myself a musician,in France, and I can share what you say and feel about your art, so necessary, not only a whim, but a vital need that allows us to share a communion with the invisible , inside and outside of us, with the beauty of the world, and , sometimes, to “escape” the disaster that this same world can be…without forgetting who we are, and where we belong..!!.As Rimbaud once said, you “settle” vertigoes, you “wake up” some springs, and you kiss the” Summer dawns”…And above all, you are yourself, free and true. You are a bliss, Kim! Thank you for being what you are, what you have always been, thank you for being in this world, thank you for your everlasting grace, your courage, your authenticity!! I love you for what you are: a great artist , and a magnificent , admirable woman. Take care!!
    Affectionately yours!! forever.

    1. Dear Kim,
      I’d want, if you allow me,to add some words about some recent comments , in some medias, about what would be the so-called “transformation” of your appearance, and especially, on behalf of Mr Trump…I must say that I was deeply shocked by such rude declarations, I can see again the same brutality that the “Hollywood system” had been using towards you, the same lack of respect of what you are and decide to be, as the free woman you always were.. To me, your beauty is absolutely intact, beside that, what should matter is your freedom, your dedication to Art!!…but I must be dreaming…!! I just hope you are doing well , in spite of everyrhing they could say!!! Beauty, Art , Independance, this is what you are!!! Keep on working for the light, as Robert Schumann said!! Take care, Kim!! Love from France.

  2. I read , in one of the comments you made on your paintings, how important music was for you; as I said in my former message, I am a musician, music is my life, it keeps me “standing”, and allows me to “escape” the disaster that this world can sometimes be. I play a very ancient historic 17th century organ ( 1627!!) in France, a pure wonder. I usually improvise, late in the night, alone in the church, so close to beauty…I guess you can understand that perfectly!!…..May I send you this improvisation , as a tribute to your art and talent? Thank you!

  3. Dear Kim…I am deeply moved to “discover” your website, and only regret not to have found it before!…I am French, a retired French Literature teacher, but above all, a musician, organist. I have been a fervent admirer of your art as an actress, for more than 55 years….since I had the most violent emotion I ever had in a theater, when , as a teen, I saw you in “Vertigo”, and never really got over…But, I had heard of your passion and great talent for painting and poetry, and I am now so happy to be able to appreciate your work here..,and so moved to realize how totally “yourself” you are ,through painting and writing, far away from the “dream factory”….I always knew that you were a beautiful soul, a deep human being, with such a sensitivity, an acute perception of human complexity, everything that your paintings and poems reflect so well, as they reflect your concern and tenderness for people. As Rimbaud wrote , you “settle” vertigoes….and kiss the “Summer dawns”!…You are a bliss..! .Thank you, from the heart! thank you for being what you are, faraway from the masks, thank you for being in this world. Affectionately yours..

  5. My Dear Beloved Kim;words cannot express my joy in being able to be in touch with you through your beautiful website.
    I’ve been a big fan of yours since i was quite a little teenager;in highschool about 9yrs ago!
    A few months ago Vertigo was on TV ; It was about 2am i guess; i was just mesmerized by you! I couldn’t help but stare at the screen just admiring you ,your wonderous flawless beauty and your amazing performance for each and every single moment !Me and mom were just praising your beauty. I absolutely fell in love with your killer eyes!
    I got so angry at the last scene! I will Never ever forgive Alfred Hitchcock for the way he ended such a beautiful and heartfelt love affair between you and Jimmy Stewart!
    After that i tried to find Bell,Book And Candle but i was unlucky:(
    Your Paintings are sooooooooo Beautiful!
    You are such a great inspiration to me, i mean i look up to you ,i say to myself;hey one of the most beautiful girls that has ever walked on this planet hasn’t just sat in one place ;she makes and paint such amazing pieces of art ;so me all the girls should follow your footsteps and try to make things rather than just doing makeup and wearing beautiful clothes(though that’s a necessity but Real Life is much more than just paying attentetion to a body and a face!)
    I just can’t wait to see more paintings of you and new updates!
    Wish you the best of the best My Dear Sweet Gorgeous Kim!:******************
    Bestest Regards!

  6. I am very happy on finding your website. I was looking up Jeanne Engel the movie on Wikipedia I just watched. By the way you were excellent in that movie as the rest. Anyway your website came up and I love your work. You are awesome. As my favorite actress as well.🎥🎥

  7. I have just watched the movie Pal Joey for the first time and was captivated by your performance. I am an Irish artist, 78 years young and paint almost every day.

    I don’t know if you will get to read this but I think you were right to follow your heart and do your painting and writing. Artists do it for themselves and nobody else. I have stopped showing my work as it puts too much pressure on you and robs you of valuable painting time.

    I look forward to watching some more of your movies.

  8. Kim,
    You said, “I am so pleased that you like my art – enjoy!”
    In return, I am so pleased that your art is available to the general public through limited edition prints.
    I do like your art for the esthetics and artistic values. The fact that you put so much of yourself into your art makes me appreciate it even more. I love the descriptions and poems that you use to show what each piece means to you.
    Keep up the good work.
    Is a collection of your poems and writings published anywhere?
    Thank you so very much,

  9. Dear Mrs Novak,
    I’m happy to have a chance to see your work. Besides all I didn’t know that you are great painter! Excellent colorit and energy. I really enjoy it. I’m also a painter and my favourit technique is watercolour. My father was saying that we are related like relatives (his family was Novak, from Croatia) but now I see that we have in common something unique. I would be happy to show you my works. Wish you a very best in your life and expecially in your art.
    Best regards,

  10. Hello Kim,

    I must say you are quite remarkable, even today your beauty shines. I am a fellow artist, and like Hitchcock always find a new muse. I’ve admired your talent for a while now, and would love to recreate something. I do CGI animation, sculpture, and painting. It would be an honor if we could work together! Or even an autograph! I’d love to hear from you. Hope all is well

    Xx Troy

  11. Kim,
    Your awesome paintings are diverse and thought-provoking, to say the least. I’m in music, another indispensable art-form that reaches into the crevices of the psyche. What would we do without these gifts from our Creator! Keep up the good work, and I look forward to viewing future creations from your limitless imagination.

  12. You are a beautiful person inside and out from what I can see..Your art is wonderful..I am an amateur artist.You are a master…… Your comments regarding your appearance at the awards show and the heartless and ignorant comments from small minded people was hopefully the beginning of a new you…I know how you feel…I am the 62 year old daughter of a Narcissistic mother and am still working on dealing with my issues…Take care Kim….
