Petted my pug Lolita who my mum is minding.
While I was sitting with her, I worked on midnightbunny's & SmishyDot's commissions.

Autumn is coming

from Kim Annabella.

Most people have an inspiriation board, I keep a wall.

Hoping to incorporate inspiration from my life into my autumn palette.

Doodling deer in my moleskine, my Partner & I at the wedding, Best Macaroon in Dundee.

 Deer, I am working on a new series of local spots of beauty, incorporation these beautiful creatures
 BOOKS! My favourite is the Nineteeth century Illustrated Byron, with original Plates.
 Everywhere I go I seek out old Ladybirds.
My small gemstone collection

Been out at Castles, and in forests and nature, seeking out inspiration and things to paint.
I am very happy about these tree's as they are for a painting diptych i am entering into RHA show next year.

(Stuart loves his candids, this is one of the few photo's of me I like, because I am not aware that it was being taken and am just doing my own thing photographing the woods.)

Things that inspire me lately; Gemstones, Old Ladybird books, My shelf of blue books that king robin is guarding, my partner, the pugs -always, bunnies, swans, castles & forests, pink curls & pretty girls.

"All Cats are Grey"

An Original Painting by Kim Annabella
Title;All Cats are Grey
Medium; Acrylic on Canvas
Height; 20”

From my Petit Trianon Series, this Original Painting is a work from it.
Please note this is for a print of the Original Painting.


Absorbing historian Antonia Fraser’s biographical tales of a child- princess in “Marie Antoinette” and adding her own dash of art-historical figuration and contemporary pop culture, Kim Annabella broaches new terrain with “Petit Trianon.” “Baroque Sumptuousness” might hint at the nature of this new work, and fans of Kim Annabella shall find familiar preoccupations-Dreamy girls lounging in repose in nature, surrounded by animals & sugary confections- in these new paintings, transposed to greener pastures.

Never reticent to deliver her work with layers of reference that range from Baroque & Gothic Revialist landscape and Eighteenth century French court painting to Eighties post-punk music, in her latest paintings Kim Annabella combines the extravagance and frivolity of a popular royal with her artistic vision as ground from which to make her carefully executed leaps into a fantasy world based on the teenaged queen with as many detractors as admirers.
My portfolio of work can be viewed on & my Art Process can be viewed indepth on the blog of the same name

Commissions always welcome.
