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.

Cat In A Tree_30x40_acrylic_9/2016. I wanted this cougar to portray an image of supreme peace and contentment. Even though it may have been chased into the tree by hunting dogs or wolves, it knows they can't climb trees and it can outrun them over short distances, or defend itself if it has too.
Rainbow Warrior_30x40_acrylic_7/2016 This painting was based on the Rainbow Warrior prophecy shared by many Native American and indiginous cultures.“ There will come a day when people of all races, colors and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all her children. They will move over the earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding, and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct, or mythical will resurface at this time. The great trees that perished will return almost over night. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our mother, the Earth. The great spiritual teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all. We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals in the way the Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out. The whole Human race will be called the People and there will be no more war, sickness, or hunger forever .” _ Navajo/ Hopi prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow.

ABOUT MY MOST RECENT PAINTING
The Rainbow Warrior stands in front of mesa known by the Lakota as Bear Bute (Devils Tower). It represents the place of first contact with those from the Pleiades and three sun like stars that are near that constellation, but currently invisible to the naked eye due to the light magnitude of the stars and the considerable amount of light pollution on earth today. The surrounding seven hills of the Black Hills were considered sacred because they reflected the seven stars of the Pleiades in their positioning. Bear Bute is the X on the map and is in a similar position as the most important of the three sun stars that surround the Pleiades and are displayed in the painting on the pendant of the necklass.
