  1. Kim, This is so powerful. My favorite of yours.
    I, like you, had a father that was manic and who handed down his illness to me. Unlike yours, mine made it impossible to love him.
    I am an artist too and it saved my life.
    I long for nature and your lifestyle as I am stuck in an apartment in a city in Texas unmarried and alone.
    God bless you for your honesty. I think the most impt ingredient for mental illness is the earth! I so honor you!

    1. Thanks for your comment, Rondi. Kim ceased selling prints of her work as it had become too heavy an obligation for her in her golden years. You can find her book, “Kim Novak: Her Art and Life” at the Butler’s website here: https://butlerart.com/product/kim-novak-her-art-life-signed-bookplate-edition/ And she is working on details that would enable us to make her prints available again after her passing. If you would like to be added to the notification list to get an email when prints are again available, please write to [email protected] or send a message through the website.

  3. To Kim Novak … I’d like to know if you sell a painting and how much? I’m not rich and have social security . I’m 73 from Charleston wv. Would you please answer my email I would love to have a cheap one if possible. Thank you Miss Novak

    1. Hello Rose, this is Kim’s assistant, Hannah. Kim does not sell her original paintings, as they are all bequeathed to the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. Of all her prints, the most affordable at $300 each are: After the Reign, Blue Bird Tattoo, Goodbyes and Hellos, Rainbow Voices, Once Upon a Time, Horse Heaven, Magic of Music, Deja Vu, Woman from the Train, In My Mother’s Arms, Metamorphosis, and Getting Clean. I hope you can find one in that price range that will make you happy every time you look at it!

  4. This is beautiful!!! I’m here with my father in law Bob Boyle and he’s telling me of the time he visited you in Carmel with your brother in law Bill. He said you came down the stairs in curlers and you were so beautiful even in curlers!!!
