Welcome To dkilpatrickart
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.

Emerald City of Krysta_40x30_acrylic_4/21.The background for this painting was acquired in the lush old growth forest of the Sechelt area. The title is a metaphorical reference to the beautiful environment of the old growth forest which sustains life in peace and harmony. in contrast to the concrete jungle of the city which promotes chaos and disease ( dis ease). Here Krysta is the queen and represents the divine feminine energy of the One Infinite Creator.
Lightlove Transformation_acrylic_36x24_6/21. Lightlove is the divine feminine energy that creates all of the many dimensional reality's. She is the AM I to the I AM. She creates and manifests reality using the power of Love and the vibrations of light and Sound. When we embrace the creative goddess within our hearts and use our heart centred consciousness we manifest our own transformation to a higher crystalline vibration of Being.
