“In the web of the dream catcher

We are connected again

There is no place where I end

And you begin


Our complex patterns

Began with one strand

In infinite varieties

We now expand “


~ Kim McElroy 


    When I met Betai and her owner Jeanette, Jeanette shared that whenever she was troubled or stressed, Betai seemed to always make her feel peaceful and strong again.  Jeanette shared her concerns for Betai’s aging, and she felt a portrait would be a wonderful way to always have Betai close in spirit.  Later as I began the composition, I did a meditation with Betai.  I asked if she had a message for her Jeanette, and she showed me the image of a dream catcher.  I realized then that this Native American symbol was the perfect accompaniment to Betai’s portrait, as it represented the healing energy she embodies, and the gift she offers of her healing presence whenever Jeanette needs her strength.

    Jeanette’s comments:

    "I asked Kim to paint a picture of my beautiful horse Betai, whom I have had the privilege of having with me for over 19 years. Kim did a beautiful job on the painting and really captured Betai for me. She worked with me as I described how I loved Betai's mane and how it looked to me as we were riding. She also called me one day and said that she saw the image of a Native American Dream Catcher, as she thought of what Betai meant to me. It is true that whenever I had problems, a ride on Betai always took care of them --and she is my "Dream Catcher". Kim added a Dream Catcher in the painting, which really works. I love the painting of Betai, I love looking at her and her beautiful flowing mane, and I thank Kim for capturing Betai for me in such a lovely painting."

PLEASE NOTE: International Print Shipments:

​Free Shipping is only offered on Domestic USA shipments and doesn't apply to Canadian and International Shipping. With the variety of products we offer, it is impossible to accurately predict Shipping charges to different countries. Shipping costs for prints are calculated AFTER checkout based on package weight and distance. Customers will receive an invoice to cover any additional costs. Please note that we are only charging the amount to ship, which exceeds what we are offering as free packaging and shipping. Tracking is also sometimes unreliable but our packages have always landed safely. ​Border fees, duties, and handling fees might apply.

When ordering prints: I have my art custom-scanned with the highest resolution possible to capture every stroke and texture of the original pastel. For most of my prints, my publisher, American Moulding, offers a variety of options shown below. I also offer Custom Prints which are made locally and hand-signed and shipped from my studio.


Paper Prints and Matted Prints are printed on substantial 180g Archival Matte paper. They are wrapped in clear protective packaging in a flat mailer.

Regarding Matted Prints: The size of the matted print indicates the outside edge of the mat dimensions. An 11" x 14" matted print fits in a frame with an 11" x 14" opening. Depending upon the artwork dimensions, mats are approx 1 1/2" - 2" wide



Premium Fine Art Prints are printed on luscious 310g Sunset Textured Watercolor paper. They are shipped rolled in a sturdy tube. This allows the larger size to ship economically and damage-free.

Canvas Prints are finished with a mirror image of the art around the edge and mounted on 1.5” inch stretcher bars. They include a wire for hanging and are shipped in a sturdy cardboard crate

Please Note:  Some of my artwork is different in ratio than standardized sizes. They work best with custom framing by your local frame shop. For more affordable framing, consider the Matted Prints which allow any size of art to become a standard-sized dimension to allow ease of selecting a store-bought frame. 

Due to supply chain issues, our current turnaround times are as follows:

Paper Prints: 1 to 2 weeks

Matted Prints: 3 to 4 weeks
