  "Geranium," 24"x20", acrylic mixed media on panel. Geranium will be offered for sale in early June, along with a handful of other rabbit paintings. Please send any questions  my way  and thanks so much for your interest in my artwork. I wanted to try and paint the history of a plants blooms in one piece. This is an idea that has been taunting me for quite some time. I'm certain there are other ways to depict this, which I will continue to explore in upcoming pieces. Thanks for taking the time to look at my work, Be well and be inspired, Kim Available Paintings Find Your Unique Artists' Style (online instruction) Recent online class content has included an in process video and a live demonstration on how I paint the trees, discussion on how to tell our personal stories in our artwork, a challenge to examine personality traits and how they impact our art practice, a presentation on embracing change and inviting new directions to our work, a critique of stude

NEW PAINTING Dandelion

  "Dandelion," 24"x20", acrylic on panel $1100 plus s&h to the first asking nicely inside the next week. If she hasn't found a home by then she will be sent to an exhibition later this summer and available to purchase in July. Please send any questions  my way  and thanks so much for your interest in my artwork. It's been a Monday for sure. Email problems, internet down, website issues, a major billing problem with my cell phone - all the things that wind one up tighter and tighter. They are resolved now - knock on wood - and so it was extra wonderful to pull Dandelion back onto my easel for some final touches. And fitting, too, that a powerful little storm cell whipped through just as I signed her. Maybe the storm washed away all the negative energy - one can hope, right? Meanwhile, I still have a good fistful of dandelions here in the studio and am going to give them another go. Who do you suppose will show up next? Thanks for taking the time to look a

NEW PAINTING Sanctuary

  "Sanctuary," 24"x30", acrylic on panel $1300 plus s&h. This piece, along with a handful of sister paintings, will be available in the coming weeks. Please send any questions  my way  and thanks so much for your interest in my artwork. This painting is steeped in reverence and peace. Have you ever been walked into a place and felt as though you were filling your lungs more deeply than you ever had before? That's the realm of this painting. She is a sanctuary. Thanks for taking the time to look at my work, Be well and be inspired, Kim

NEW PAINTING Synapse

  Kimberly Kelly Santini   artist, instructor, daydreamer "Synapse," 24"x30", acrylic on panel $1300 plus s&h. This piece, along with a handful of sister paintings, will be available in the coming weeks. Please send any questions  my way  and thanks so much for your interest in my artwork. Fun fact - the trees in this painting were inspired from tree paintings I did several weeks ago. I literally used my own paintings of trees as the reference for the tree shapes in this piece. And the hyacinths are homegrown, painted from life using blooms beaten down by this week's rain. I particularly love how all of the shapes have morphed into marks that feel stylistically my own. Thanks for taking the time to look at my work, Be well and be inspired, Kim

SUN MOON OCEAN Journaling

  Sun Moon Ocean is the newest in my series of free creative content hosted on   my YouTube channel . It's been a bit since I last wrote about my new journaling project, a free, self study, streamable series of videos hosted on   my YouTube channel , the most recent of which was published this morning. Each session introduces a series of prompts, ideas or techniques to enhance your journaling practice. So far we have talked about spilling (the writing, not the coffee sort), manifesting intentions, heightened self-care practices and affirmations to carry along our life journey. These classes are starting points - you can mirror my example or adapt to better meet your own leanings. They can be done at your own pace, in your own space, alone or with a group. And because I believe that journaling should be accessible to all regardless of financial circumstances, for the foreseeable future these classes will be entirely free (although there is cost related to producing this content so p

NEW PAINTING Sapling

  "Sapling," 16"x20", acrylic on panel, from the "Forest for the Trees" series. This piece, along with some sister pieces will be available in the very near future. Please send any questions  my way  and thanks so much for your interest in my artwork. I work intuitively, which means that I have no idea or plan as to how a piece will turn out. I just show up and follow my muse. It's often a game of cat and mouse - particularly when I think I know where we are headed. I am almost always wrong. I have learned to be quiet and patient. Usually that does the trick. There's also many, many layers of paint in these pieces. Those layers are often paintings or designs that could be considered finished works on their own accord. When I sit with them, they bloom with promise but also keep their secrets until I pick my brush up again and trust that things will work out. With Sapling, my muse first revealed the adult version of this tree. You can see her boughs
