9 thoughts on “Mountain Man”

  1. Miss Novak, thank you so much for being with us on the Turner Classic Movies Cruise in November. Your interviews were so warm, heartfelt, and honest that I cried during each one! I appreciate your accomplishments in so many artistic disciplines and admire that you brought one of your wonderful paintings to the cruise to auction for charity. All of your paintings are beautiful, and you are lovely, inside and out! God bless you.

  2. How funny! I spent minutes composing a message to and for you then saw it disappear. Computers are so smart. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that this seventy-five year old woman admires you and all you have accomplished.

  3. Beautiful work!
 Sensed much about you looking at each piece, your work seeming to display your deepest feelings, expressions and emotions. I find each piece mesmerizing. Even when watching your films I felt a mysterious persona in every part you played and now seeing your work, each gives me a sense of mystery, sadness and loneliness. I happened on this site from a comment regarding your appearance at the Oscars. Your art work is to me a look into your soul. I believe that’s why I enjoyed so much watching your films. Unfortunately, I am on social security and unable to purchase one of your paintings, and if I were able to afford one, I would have a difficult time deciding. Each reeks of heart and emotion. The Mountain Man is quite nice. He reminds me of “The Last America Man” Eustice Conway, who lives in South Carolina.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  4. Hi, Kim.
    You are a very talented artist. I especially like “Mountain Man” because it’s a great portrait and because my wife calls me that. We spend a lot of time in the mountains here in northern California. I also enjoyed seeing your pet Stellar’s Jay. We have a lot of them in this area.

  5. Good Morning, Ms. Novak.
    You are a very talented artist. I am not sure which one I liked the best. Although, “They Left Laughing” choked me up. What a special event and you captured it so beautifully. After reading what you wrote it made me think of my parents, aunts and uncles that have passed on before me.
    The poem with your painting “Once Upon A Time” spoke to me. As a young girl I often thought about trees, still do, and wondered which one I would be.
    Whenever I am being spiritual I am near a body of water, which if often. Lucky me. “Life Is But A Dream” reminded me of those times talking with God and, I am always asking what do you want me to do now?
    And, I have to say, “Mountain Man” is so detailed it belongs in a museum. Absolutely outstanding.
    I wish you well.

  6. You are so enormously talented, and it appears you have paid a great price for your talents. I think I might understand a bit, sharing just of few of your trials.

    My favorite pictures are: “Looking Back to See Ahead” and “Mountain Man” (I must be partial to portraits). I also very much like your self portrait, but knowing it is you, would also like something more current. I will assess my budget and make a decision, hopefully while they are still available.

    Please continue to be brave. The malcontents in this world are after all just a handful of human beings. My very best wishes to you.

  7. Hi Kim,

    I just wanted to tell you that I support you! I love your paintings and think you are beautiful at age 81.


  8. I do like your style of painting. I especially like “Mountain Man”, you really caught the face of a weathered, time-honored man. Keep up the good work and I love your movies!
