New Etsy shop!

I don't usually make New Year's resolutions, but this year I did. On January first, I committed to drawing or painting in my sketchbook every single day, for at least half an hour and to post the images on Instagram. I knew this process would transform the way I drew and painted, but I had no idea where it would lead. As the year went on, I gravitated towards using gouache, and the sketchbook pages began to look more like finished paintings. I loved working on these little paintings, but they were not in keeping with my original vision of the sketchbook project, which was to use that space purely for experimenting, trying new materials and making visual notes for larger work. However, I did not want to stop doing these little gouache paintings, because frankly, they are a lot of fun to do. I needed to give them a new purpose.

I am excited to announce the grand opening of Kim T. Richards Studio, my new Etsy shop where you can see and purchase my small gouache paintings. If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen some of the paintings available in the shop, but there are a few new ones as well. I plan to add new work each week, so be sure to check back from time to time. If you have a special request, please contact me and I will accommodate it if possible.

I love doing these little paintings so much, and I'm so happy to share them with you!
