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.

Matrix Mind_30x40_acrylic_2/2017 This painting represents how the Earth is connected to and affected by humanity's collective consciousness. Like a computer program that changes and adapts with every thought from every human our planet's consciousness is a reflection of humanity's collective thoughts of fear, greed, and and racial turmoil. If we recognized that we are all connected and all are an aspect of the Creator we would treat each other as equals and in a loving manner as we would understand they were our brothers and sisters created in the love/light of the creator. the character in this painting has taken on the person of her magical, metaphysical, creative personality and through love for her beloved mother Earth she is changing the condition of the planet to a higher vibration and thus humanity which must match the Earth's vibration to exist in love ,peace and harmony.
"Snow Cat" _18x36_acrylic_3/2017 I was inspired to paint this piece because of my love for big cats. With our frequent snow stroms this winter I was able to get some photos that depicted the soft lighting transitions of the snow into the blues and violets when the snow is in shadow under a bright sun. With the heavy snow causing the branches to drape down and create a dappling of sunlight on the ground, it seemed like the ideal place to have a big cat resting under the branches of a grove of trees. I then adjusted the lighting of my references to enhance the camoflage characteristics of the leopards coat.
