Kent State University

Good afternoon!

I just wanted to share my thank yous and gratitude for the support that has been given to me throughout the years. Whether you bought a piece of my art, traded me something, or just said some encouraging words, it means the world to me.

I was accepted into Kent State University for an MFA degree in Painting and Drawing and was also graciously awarded a Graduate Teaching Assistantship, so I'll have my own Drawing I classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Thank you all for your continued support and love,

Kit Palencar

Akron Art Prize 2016

Good afternoon, visitors!


I just wanted to share a couple pieces that I recently (today at around 8:00am) finished. Only one was sent off to the 2016 Akron Art Prize. Deadlines can be oh so fun to meet. Anyways, Elijah was the one that was entered and the other portrait is a revisit of a previous acrylic of the same subject painted back in 2013.


Thanks again for looking. Check back soon for more updates.

In the Works #4

Good evening, visitors!

Just a quick update of a couple new things I'm working on. One is a larger 24" x 48" portrait of an old friend of mine; Eli. The next is a smaller 12" x 12" study of an old man my dad had photographed back in the day. 

Thanks for checking in as always.

In the Works #3

Good Evening!

After a long hiatus from updating my website (Terribly sorry), I posted some new work up. Four new paintings in total and three of them were entered into the 2016 Waterloo Arts Fest Juried Exhibition with the wonderful Rob Lehr as the juror. 

Head to the "Paintings" tab to see the new pieces and view my Instagram to see how these pieces came to be. 

Thank you!
