Kim Waldman – The Purple Pomegranate
The Purple Pomegranate, a fine craft specialty store, is featuring work by Whitefish artist Kim Waldman during the month of December. In her mid twenties after graduating from nursing school, Kim found an old toolbox full of oil paints at a garage sale. She began painting portraits of friends in hats and became interested in self-portraits. A few years later Kim began painting with gouache, an opaque watercolor, and soon combined gouache with ink. Her artwork evolved into colorful and whimsical circus performers, musicians and dancers.
