Red Mountain

Red Mountain, Prints Available

Red Mountain, Original Acrylic by Kim Nelson


who doesn’t love red?

I love red in the dining room. Have you ever noticed that lots of traditional or continental restaurants have red walls, seating or art? Red makes us hungry, I suppose; but it also makes us happy and conversational. 

Speaking of conversations

I recently went to a community dinner at Old Vine Cafe located in The Camp in Orange County, California where bold pieces by local artists hung on the walls, great food came out in six courses and informative conversations flowed. We talked about art, travel, food and wine and life in an engaged community. If you have a chance to attend a community or wine dinner, DO IT! You’ll be glad you did. And maybe you’ll see some good local art and enjoy a lively conversation.

and local art…

The original Red Mountain is not available, but you can order prints in every size and shape from my shop. And if you want to see more, follow me on Instagram where I post daily.



I painted this the day President Donald J Trump forsook his promise to represent and protect the LGTBQ community.

Create Everyday

Create Every day. That’s my motto. Be a maker, a baker, a writer, poet, painter. Be a parent, a gardener, musician, caregiver. Create. Every Day!  

I’ve created art all my life. I received my first oil painting kit when I was 8 or 10; (Do you remember, Mom?) and I never stopped making. I rarely shared my work, but that’s changing. 

Here is one of the recents:
