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.

"Snow Flake"_24x30_acrylic_11/16 This painting has a typical west coast winter scene with the mottled feathers of a young bald eagle against the back ground of blue greys sky and moss covered branches. In this painting the young eagle is experiencing it's introduction to snow flakes and gives them a careful inspection as they fall gently around it,s perch.
"Dragon's Breath"_30x40_acrylic_10/16 This painting represents inner peace. The buddha statue is sitting in the peace mudra, with his hands in his lap. He sits upon a lotus flower of enlightenment. Having attained a state of inner peace he has no fear as he knows he is one with all and always will be. So even though it may seem he is being attacked by a dragon amongst the crashing waves, it only has the same effect as the spray of water on his back.
