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. Since 2014 I have started to paint subjects with a metaphysical theme or spiritual nature to them. 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.

Scarab_pastel on suede mat_24x36_12/17 We tend to look down upon the insect world. This magnificent lion, the King of Beasts, eyes a scarab beetle as it goes about it's business of rolling a large ball of dung to a place where it can be buried and create a nursery for it's young. However without the dung beetle performing this necessary task the world would be covered in dung. To further emphasize this point the dung ball has the African continent superimposed upon it's surface.
Bohemian Starseed 2_30x40_acrylic_12/17. This painting represents the rainbow energy beings of love/light that we all are. I created it as way for people to consider each other from a different perspective. As a human being we tend to look at and dwell upon our physical differences in appearance, culture and religious beliefs, yet our inner selves are all the same. We are energy beings of rainbow coloured light from our red root chakra, through orange, yellow, green, blue, and indigo energy centres to the violet crown chakra. Her heart shaped necklace is symbolic of the heart chakra. It is from this green ray energy centre that spiritual expansion of consciousness can be achieved once it has been activated through meditation.
