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.

Best Friends Magazine did a beautiful feature article on the Painting a Dog a Day project in their July issue, and I need to extend a HUGE thank you to their staff for doing such a marvelous job.

I also need to thank all their readers who have responded so enthusiastically to the project.

Ironically the magazine came out when I was on vacation (Murphy's law!!), but I am looking forward to returning tomorrow to my daily canines. Trust me, I DID paint last week - I worked on some larger commissions and canvases. I also was able to get to some organizational tasks completed for the Canine Art Guild and a couple other exhibition committees I sit on. I didn't get the studio walls re-painted like I wanted, but there were only so many hours!!

Some of you are receiving "full mailbox" error messages when trying to send me your photos. Please be patient - I am checking my email as often as possible, and responding to your messages as soon as I can.

I'd also like to point out (since I've gotten a number of inquiries) that the Painting a Dog a Day blog is searchable. There is a white box in the uppermost left hand corner where you may enter your keywords ("mixed breed," "lab," "terrier," etc).

I've done my best to keep the blog up-to-date as far as which paintings are still available for purchase. If you have questions, of course, please email and let me know - ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

And I'd also like to announce that for any commissioned dog-a-day portrait sales resulting from the Best Friends Magazine article will qualify for a 20% donation back to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. This organization has a stellar history of going above and beyond consistantly, and I am proud to be able to help them out.

Thanks, again, as always, for looking.
And for sharing the paintings and project with your family and friends.
I'll be back tomorrow!
