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 wanted today’s painting to be the final installment of “Granny Squares” (from earlier this week), but I’m still working away on it, and the painting is too wet to photograph without lots of glare. Looks like it’ll be a late night, as the deadline for the competition I am aiming for is tomorrow.

So I set that one aside for a little bit this afternoon and pulled this one together. I loved the expression of joy on the dog’s face, and the extension of his front leg, and how that bunched up folds of skin and fur across his chest. There’s also some green reflected in his belly, and some nice lavenders rounding out the body.

“Play I (Boston Terrier),” 8” x 16”, dog portrait on canvasboard, $160. Inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .
SOLD.

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings with friends and family.
Enjoy your weekend!
