     Happy February and soon San Valentino, oy!  I am so happy to share with you these following artworks.  

Tall spindly trees tickling the skies from within transparent cloud cover in Tasmania. This painting is now available as prints and on other home decor items.

     Finally, my fault entirely, I have gotten a high-resolution image of my large oil painting, Tasmania in the Clouds.  The original artwork (80 x 100 cm [about 31.4 x 39.4 inches]) is in a private collection in Tasmania.  But now I can offer quality fine art prints and home decor items and share with you this composition of Dr. Seuss-like trees that are so typical of that gorgeous island in the south of Australia.  My life was in limbo between Italy and Croatia during the time that I had to send the painting to Tasmania and thus, I was unable to get a good image of my own work.  Many thanks to the painting's owner for making this happen!

Bronze Portrait of a Texas Man:

     Do you enjoy portraiture?  I have been rather involved with my portrait commission of a late Texan that will be cast in bronze once I finish the clay sculpture and then make the mold.  You may follow my progress in a couple of places, namely YouTube, Patreon (for posts that only art patrons there can see), and occasionally on other social media, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

     I will be returning to Texas to work with my foundry in the Hill Country, but as of this writing, I do not know exactly when.  I received more changes from my client this morning, thus extending the work a bit more.

Artist Kelly Borsheim uses her hands to make a portrait of a man in clay, for bronze casting later.

Teaching in North Carolina in mid-May:

Short info:      Saturday afternoon, May 13, 2023; Sanford, North Carolina
                         Saturday afternoon, May 20, 2023; Cary, North Carolina
Both Floral Painting classes, 4 hours each one.               

     The Sanford Brush & Palette Club in Sanford, North Carolina, has invited me to teach a painting workshop on the Saturday before Mother's Day... hence 13 May 2023.   Tea will be served starting at noon, and the floral painting class will run from 2 - 6 p.m.  This should be a fun activity with Moms, but also anyone who would love to paint.

     In addition to that, I will be teaching a similar workshop the following weekend with another art group in Cary.

     I still have to create the two choices of images we will paint from and clarify other details, but I thought I would give you the heads-up on these events.  It would be lovely to meet you there!



Search Tool and Guest Artists:

          Do you know about or find useful the little magnifying glass search tool on my site at ?
     I have been working on making this more useful by including more keywords on each artwork page.  For example, you may enter any word you like in your search for art, such as a location name, partial title to an artwork you know or subject that interests you, a color (are you trying to match your couch?), and sometimes a proportion (tall and narrow, for example).

Try it out!

Search the site of BorsheimArts, here is how it looks on a phone Web site
