Featuring the Art of Mike Kling

Thanks for stopping by. You can see my latest painting or drawing featured above. Keep checking the site, I have been averaging a couple of new works a month. The “ART” link at the top of the page will take you to my online catalog of Paintings, Drawings, and some information on my original media, Bonsai. “Scribbles” will contain some short writings. The “ART” link has been newly organized by year, with 2017-18 being Art produced when I lived in Virginia Beach, and 2019-20 will feature my new works from New Mexico.

There is a Tag Cloud, for your convenience, at the bottom of each page where you can click a Tag and see all posts and pages related to it’s topic, like, “Beach Art”, or, “Animal Art”. And while you’re down there, you can check on “Latest Additions” to catch up on the most recent posts.

We hope you enjoy your time spent here on Seas ‘n Trees.

Check out this link to see what and why I’ve been Sketching lately… It’s called, “Practice. Practice. Practice.”


Did you ever wonder about the process of painting, of how a painting comes to be? Some people can plan out a painting and execute it perfectly, but I don’t always do that. Sometimes inspiration strikes when you’re partially through and you go with it, trying this and that until something gels. That may not be the ideal way to paint, but it can be effective. You can get a peek behind the scenes at the process of painting here.

And, finally, here’s a link to my old Seas ‘n Trees blog, featuring the daily pics of Sunrises at Virginia Beach from 2012-14.
