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.

I have mastiffs on my mind. I’ve been doing quite a bit of sketching, planning for a lifesize mastiff portrait, and while waiting for the client’s feedback on her painting’s concept, I decided to do this smaller study. I wasn’t striving for any particular likeness, just playing with the unique lines of the breed’s profile, and working out my palette for the portrait.

“Mastiff Profile,” 6”x6”, acrylic dog painting on canvasboard. Inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

If you are interested in following the portrait’s process, you can view Beau’s concept sketch at www.turtledovedesigns.com/wetpaint.html . I will post updates to this same page during the next few weeks as the painting progresses.

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with friends and family.
