Confetti Meadow Series II - 18"x24"
This little group of paintings are a continuation of my new landscape series.  I plan to take a few of them to Northville, Michigan  this weekend for "Art in the Sun".  The weather is forecasted to be wonderful and Northville is an adorable town to visit. Stop by and see me at booth #6 on Main St.

You can now see a little bit of Kim Rhoney in England...

The image of one of my orchard paintings was selected for the label of an organic apple cider made by Wood's Orchard in Gloucestershire County, England. Gloucestershire is located in a rural part of England's south west countryside.

My painting is in the background of the label and you can see upon closer inspection that I was given credit for the painting in the upper right corner of the label. Very cool! Now let's see if people in the UK start Googling me!!

Recent trip to Warren, PA
Last weekend I had the opportunity to help raise money for the Majengo Orphanage of Tanzania, South Africa. If it weren't for a couple of collectors of mine, I wouldn't know anything about these kids. Hearing their story, it's hard to forget about them. This orphanage was founded to rescue children along the safari trail that were being exploited to tourists without ever benefitting from the money collected on their behalf. Since the inception of the Majengo Orphanage, these pseudo orphanages have been put out of business and Majengo has nearly tripled the number of kids that it feeds and educates daily. You can get more information directly on their website.
