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.

In Pursuit of Perfection 11/23 40x30 acrylic. You are your thoughts. This painting was inspired by the Baird Spalding 6 book series The life and Teaching of the Masters from the Far East. In his books he described the lives of the masters and how they had overcome the death and reincarnation cycle. These masters lived for hundreds of years and daily performed what we would consider to be miracles similar to the same as those performed by Jesus. He also was a regular contributor to the teachings in the series. In this painting the young woman represents a 700 year old ascended master as one who has perfected the body through the principle teachings of the I AM. Thus she has become and is the Love, Truth and Light of the One Infinite Creator.

Free Spirit_23.5x32.5_soft pastel 10/23. This painting was inspired by the story of Spirit the black panther. He was a captive in a German zoo. They named him Diablo which means devil. Spirit was a difficult captive and was sold to a game farm in South Africa. he was still difficult ,so the owner brought in a psychic to see if she could discover the reason. The leopard told her he did not like the name Diablo. they changed his name to Spirit and the new owner treated him in a more loving manner. Problem solved.
