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.

from top: "Fisher Price Dog I," "Fisher Price Dog II," "Fisher Price Dog III," each 4" x 6", still life painting of plastic Fisher Price dog figurines/toys, acrylic on board, $135 each. Inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .
"Fisher Price Dog III" is sold.

I'm having a little too much fun in the studio lately. Can you tell? I've been painting toys - it started with the vintage dog figurines last year, and now I've graduated to Fisher Price dogs. I have a nice little collection of these guys. It is surprising to me that each dog bears a unique expression, despite the fact that they were all pressed from the same mold. And how their color has changed over the years, depending on their circumstances - some faces are blue, others white, orange or yellow. Some faces are even blank, or the dogs have lost an ear - or horrors - both!

How cute will these be, framed together in a nursery or child's room? Or tucked into a corner of your home, someplace that will be certain to deliver you a smile and a childhood memory.

Thanks doubly today - I've bothered you twice now with my drivel!
Talk to you tomorrow!
