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.

“Goldendoodle Grin (Kramer),” commissioned goldendoodle portrait, 8” square, acrylic pet portrait on canvasboard, private collection (or so I believe – rumor has it that my client is out of town, so I haven’t yet received confirmation that Kramer is, indeed, part of her collection – as always, inquiries may come to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com ).

The brushwork and paint application on this piece are just as juicy and gooey as Kramer’s face. I painted at an arms’ length away, using my whole upper body to make the movements. It was just like dancing.

I wonder if Kramer chose the music, what he would have listened to this afternoon. Would it be Etta James, who I had going strong on my ipod all afternoon? Or would it have been High School Musical 2, which of late has been pouring out of every little girls’ window in our neighborhood (including my own daughter's)?

Thank you also to returning client Barbara Pope who purchased two framed dog-a-day paintings today, each featuring bulldogs (from November 20th and December 28th). They will be beautiful additions to her burgeoning dog-a-day collection.

Thanks as always for looking.
And for forwarding these paintings to friends and family,
Kim
