Watercolors by Kim McCarty
I recently discovered the work of Los Angeles-based artist Kim McCarty and it’s safe to say I’ve re-assigned my Celine bag piggy bank money to a McCarty watercolor. McCarty paints blurry, ethereal, hauntingly beautiful figures in a palette that is subdued but still colorful. Her work has been getting a lot of recognition recently in the art world, and rightfully so. We’d love to put one of McCarty’s pieces in a client’s home. Below, her studio lined with some of her watercolors.A few pieces framed at an installation. It’s funny how once you find something you love, you start seeing it all over the place. I was flipping through the June issue of Vogue and low and behold, there’s a Kim McCarty piece hanging in jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth’s California house!
This watercolor, below, is one of my favorites. I love how McCarty uses color and brush strokes to evoke a heartbreaking loneliness in her portraits.

Anyone else a fan of McCarty? Will keep you updated on my quest to acquire one of these beauties!
