Welcome To dkilpatrickart
Welcome to the website of David Kilpatrick
On this site you will find works of Art created by me. I am a painter in acrylics and I have been painting since 1986. I am also an occasional carver of soapstone. I am married with two children. I tend to paint character studies of subjects in which I strive to create compositions, whether they be human or animal that convey a particular emotion or an identifiable character trait of the subject. In the last two years I have started to paint subjects of a more metaphysical or spiritual nature. My style is mainly realistic with a touch of abstraction, particularly in the background, or with a bit of fantasy. My main emphasis while painting is creating a subtle transition between color tones, often adjusting or adding a temperature change in the small area of transition. This aspect of transitional change, I feel, allows my paintings to have a vivid glow and uniqueness to them. I hope you enjoy viewing the artwork as much as I did creating it. Thank you for showing an interest in this site.

Metamorphosis-30x40_acrylic_6/2017 Imagine breaking free from a cocoon and learning to fly for the first time. In essence humanity has been imprisoned in a cocoon of negative programming that influences our thoughts and how we view our reality. Since we are our thoughts we create this reality/illusion as we have been programmed to believe. But through the power of positive thinking we can overcome the negative programming and create a reality of unity consciousness where we are all one and filled we love, peace, and acceptance for all life including ourselves. then we can break free of our cocoons and fly, like we were meant to.
"Pte San Win" _ 22x28_acrylic_7/2017 The beautiful, mystical, earth spirit of the Lacota was the inspiration for this painting. Pte San Win (White Buffalo Calf Woman) brought the Lacota their sacred pipe and the ceremonies that were used in their spiritual culture.
