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.

"Winston," 4" x 8", a Shih Tzu dog portrait in acrylic on canvasboard. Proceeds from the sale of this painting will go to Peke A Tzu Rescue. Send inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

First, I must apologize for consistently misspelling my rescues' name, along with typo-ing their website in yesterday's posting. The group has kindly forgiven my error, and I hope you will as well. The correct spelling of the rescue is Peke A Tzu, and their website is http://www.pekeatzurescue.com/ .

As I mentioned yesterday, Peke A Tzu Rescue focuses on toy and small breeds. They are based in Michigan, with foster homes also in Indiana, Ohio and Florida specializing in special needs dogs, like Winston, the star of today's painting.

Winston was rescued in 2004, completely flea infested, with unclipped toenails growing into the pads of his feet, and horrible eye and ear infections. Today he is a happy, contented boy who loves being loved on. He does have special dietary needs to counteract an immune deficiency problem, and he continues with eye medication. But he also remains hopeful that the right home will come along. It will - it's bound to!

A thank you and welcome aboard to new dog-a-day collector Sandy Olsen, who purchased Ruger's portrait from Monday. A donation will be made to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary on her behalf.

And a special thanks to returning client and fellow artist Judy Wood for adopting "Fisher Price Dog III," and adding him to her collection.

Later tonite I'll also be posting yet another new piece........ the paint is flying around these parts!

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