Hey! A special note: My blog looks a bit different, and you may see some ads appear. Let me know what you think! Also, the name of my blog now matches the address http://www.artfoodhome.com I just moved my name underneath it where art. food. home. used to be… 

Lori Kiergaard. Wow… the way she can paint light in the darkness is incredible, she has a way that just makes it glow! I have a few more favorites… Train Station and Dinner at John’s, but you’re going to have to check out her website to see them 😉 hard to pick just a few!

Wonderful work, a nice variety, the bar interiors with the reflected lights all over, really quite wonderful… wonderful city scenes and a few interiors as well! All are very nicely done!

Read a blip about Lori from her website:


Lori paints a wide variety of subject, from still life to cityscape, figures and one point perspective interiors and landscapes. Lately she has enjoyed working on a series of bar paintings. “I believe that people leave something of themselves on the things that they create, the things that they love and the things that they use. The ghost of a moment becoming ghosts of many moments. That is what I try to paint. You can see the way it thrills, when light falls on this ting or that, filling the moment with memories or hope”.


Mostly self taught, I have had many teachers along the way. I have also studied next to some amazing and well known realist painters, my animator husband and one very special comic book artist. I had a lot to learn when I started painting, and still do. The best thing about being a painter is the opportunity to continue learning and growing for the rest of my life.
