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.

"Scooter," 6" x 12", commissioned jack russell terrier pet portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!).

This is Scooter, a 12 year old "mama's boy." I used a combination of current and older photos so as to paint Scooter in an ageless fashion - his markings still bright with youth, but his eyes a little wiser from age. And that ever present terrier tenacity as well!

At the risk of coming across as shameless, I thought I might share a snippet of a note from this week's Jack Russell lovin' client (with her permission, of course). She had reserved a full week's worth of portraiture last July, and has been patiently in the wings for the past 6 months. She sent me this earlier today.

"....So often in life we plan and look forward to an upcoming experience. The event finally occurs and we sometimes allow ourselves to be let down, as though the anticipation eclipsed the one thing we were looking forward to. I wanted you to know that this was so not the case in regards to these portraits. It was worth the wait...and the wait was worth the end result...."

My wish is that her words will help those of you who are in line for your own dog-a-day paintings. I am booking portraits for December 2008 and beyond, which seems ridiculous in an odd way. But at least there's the entertainment factor of tuning in to the dog-a-day project in the interim.

Inquiries may always come to me at ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

Thanks, as always, for looking and reading and appreciating and sharing and simply being in tune with whatever I happen to be humming each day.
See you tomorrow,
Kim
