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.

“Incognito,” 4” x 5”, mixed breed pet portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, $50. Inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .
SOLD.

This seemed like an appropo image for a summer’s day. The trickiest part for me was painting the glasses with just the right shade of polarization. First I had them too orange, then they were too blue and dark and not transparent at all. I just kept rubbing them out, and giving it another try. Eventually they worked out well, and then I was able to do the rest of the painting – the nose and the fringey hair.

(Just a note – This is a tiny little painting, and those white specks are the actual weave of the canvasboard.)

Hope everyone is enjoying these longer days, and getting to kick back just a little bit themselves. This dog seems to have it nailed!

Thank you to returning collector Kelly Dally for purchasing yesterday’s Shar-pei painting.

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