Paintings With Soul

Since October 2006 I've been a daily painter, creating a new pet portrait at least 5 times per week. Over the years I've expanded my offerings to include a variety of animals, pets, race horses, children and other treasured heirlooms. In addition, I accept a limited number of commissions each year.

In 2015 I am honored to be the Kentucky Derby Artist.

You may use the links below right to receive my daily paintings via email or to follow my blog with a feed. I post additional info, including in-process jpgs and other related information, on the studio Facebook page as well.

Meanwhile, thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

Don't forget that you can have the Dog-a-Day's emailed directly to you! Just use the Google boxes at the top (or bottom) of this blog to subscribe!

I've also built a Dog-a-Day website, called, imaginatively enough, http://www.paintingadogaday.com/ . At the end of each week, I'll update that site with some of the paintings that are still available for purchase.

Because I've also had a number of readers ask about simplifying their hunt for just the right painting, I've added breed specific keywords to this blog. So now you can search away!!

Thanks, as always, for looking!

Shepherd study, 4x5, dog painting in acrylic on canvasboard. Inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com
You might notice a brighter look to the blog today; I made a few design changes to the template so as to show the artwork off better.
I also added a search feature - in the upper left corner there is an entry bos where you may type in a keyword (lab, terrier, available) and all applicable posts/paintings will be displayed. Hope this helps you to browse through as the dog-a-days increase in number!

Dog-A-Day Newsgroup

Some people have complained that they do not have internet access at work, or do not always have time to check into the blog each day, but they want to follow along with the paintings. Or by the time they can share the painting with a significant other (usually the one with the checkbook), the painting is already sold.

While I can't really fix the whole sold situation (except by painting more prolifically!), I can help out in another way.

I went ahead and built a newsgroup to accompany the painting a Dog-A-Day blog.

Interested readers can subscribe to the newsgroup by typing their email address into the Google bar at the very top of this blog page, and hitting the "Subscribe" button.

By subscribing to the newsgroup, each (painting) day you will receive an email. You will get this email, along with an attachment of the Dog-a-Day painting several hours prior to the blog getting updated.

I hope that this helps out, and encourage you to keep your ideas coming. Ideas and inquiries as always, to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

THANK YOU!
