Welcome to the website of David Kilpatrick

On this site you will find works of Art created by me. I paint in acrylics and pastel on suede mat. 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. Since 2014 I have started to paint subjects with a metaphysical theme or spiritual nature to them. These often deal with themes of enlightenment and relate the metaphorical language of light, in the colour and composition. I first create my compositions in Photoshop, using various photo references to create the composition of an idea I have in my minds eye. My style is mainly realistic with a touch of abstraction, particularly in the background, or with a hint of fantasy as all is connected on a multidimensional level of consciousness. My main emphasis while painting is to create a subtle transition between the 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. Wishing you light, love and truth on your journey.

Dream Catcher 4/2024 acrylic on canvas. Almost everyone has dreamed of flying like an eagle. In this painting this young woman while walking along the beach shore spies an eagle in the distance and imagines herself flying over the coastline. There is a much deeper meaning to her vision.The eagle, as a spirit animal represents the spiritual journey to ascension and enlightenment. the pink rose represents the higher heart chakra of her higher self / guardian angel and is a sacred masculine energy. Her dream catcher earrings ensure that she will manifest into being that which she envisions on her spiritual journey.

This Too Shall Pass 5/24 acrylic on clay board. In this painting the young woman has been caught in a thunderstorm down pour. She is soaking wet and cold. However she knows this temporary set back in her life will be replaced by sunshine . The sun is already sending her a ray of hope and knowing that all such catalysts are only temporary.
