Mr. B 2019

New photo of my client Jeni and Mr.B in front of the painting i did of him a few years ago. It was truely a gift to recieve this picture in my messages yesterday. Mr. B also has a nice big smile on his face!

Your pet brings so much fun & joy in your life. A one of a kind hand painted portrait of them is a great way of representing that feeling of joy that this creature brings to your life every day. I began painting pet portraits in this style in 2016. I create my paintings with acrylic, collaged paper, spray paint and watercolor and varnish them when they are finished. My pet paintings have been seen on tv, magazines & newspaper articles and are collected all over the U.S.A.

I really appreciate the support Photo by Ashley Hempel photography

Hello Again… Cute Spirit Animals

Hello again everyone! I had a long break from all this major art stuff in my life. Here is a bit about what has been going on. I had an awakening spiritually a few years ago and ever since then I have been trying to figure out what to make of it. Along the way I moved from New Orleans to help take care of my ailing father. Finally I moved back to New York state to be closer to my Mother and have finally settled near the Catskills in a lovely area close to nature. That being said I am re-dedicating myself to my work and emphasizing my pet portrait commissions and animal paintings. This current series I am doing will reflect my optimism and love for living in the now, and my colorful big eyed critters.  I am hoping to get a shop up soon of current work. Have a nice day. Peace!

Thank You!

I just wanted to thank everyone that has supported me and my work. I have been working many years to try to become a better artist and I appreciate those of you who have been with me on that journey to whatever capacity. I have been going through a more introspective stage in my life which is very different from where I was even a few short months ago. I have found that the person I am becoming is much happier without art being my primary focus in my life. I will not be posting on social media any more, but I may occasionally still post up on this page what I am working on in the future. You can still contact me via this site or email kt@kthayerart.com Cheers!

Be kind to yourself, be kind to others and be kind to planet earth!
