Pastel over Watercolor Underpainting
“When Winter Ends, Can Spring be Far Behind?”…These are lines from one of my favorite poems, which I tried to show in this painting – the melting snow and the beginning of new golden shoots awakening from the marshes. Life renewing itself…

Translation from Estonian: “Gorgeous work, waking up from winter to spring, thank you very much!”
Beautiful work Kim!
I love your work.
I LOVE THIS, KIM. ‘When Winter Ends.’ It makes me want to find this place and sit forever, hoping it will never change. And it will ‘never end’ because of your work. Beautiful.
I am an artist and poet, too. And love animals. Just discovered your web page. Love all your work.
God Bless, stay well. (Oh…watching ‘Picnic’ right now!)
Have one of your prints, and so love it. Can’t wait to see your posts.
Thank you for speaking out about bullying. I had no idea you were an artist. What wonderful work…my favorites: Looking Back to See Ahead, Deja Vu and When Winter Ends. I’ll definitely be researching your poem turned song as I am an avid student of poetry. What a fascinating story!

Dear Ms. Novak, I just read your response to the ugly remarks about your appearance at the Oscars – and I say “kudos”!! It is truly sad that so many in society never think twice about the consequences of their words. And that every thought that runs through their head is “newsworthy” and at the very least should be tweeted, blogged, or emailed. I’m glad you respectfully and sincerely responded to such unkindness…And most of all, it was a pleasure to see your artwork. I had no idea you were an artist. Your work is beautiful! Love the colors and especially the two with dogs in them and Deja Vu and When Winter Ends.
Oh and vertigo was one of my favorite Hitchcock movies…which is really kind of ironic. Because in the last year I’ve had 2 slight episodes of Vertigo – UGH! Wouldn’t wish it on my enemies :o) haha.
