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.

"Gentry," 6" square, mixed breed dog portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, $135 to the first interested buyer. $26 of the purchase of Gentry's painting will be donated to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in the buyers' name. Inquiries may come to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .
SOLD.

Gentry adores people, can't get enough of them, and doesn't let anything slow him down, despite getting about on 3 legs. He was hit by a car last August, and has had surgery since (including pins, screws and a metal plate in his hip), but still carries one leg around like a dead weight. He's in line for additional testing and xrays to determine the extent of the injury, and what type of care will be required to get him back on all fours.


"Brady," 4" x 5", mixed breed dog portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, $105 to the first interested buyer. $20 of the purchase of Brady's portrait will be donated to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in the buyers' name. Inquiries may always come to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

Everyone knows a dog like Brady, who's smile reaches deep into their eyes. Yet this dog's history belies his affable grin - he has bitten, multiple times, and takes a while to warm up to new people. Although once he knows you, he's a huge lap hog.

Gentry and Brady tie up February's Animal Welfare Week. Again, I need to thank the staff at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary for their assistance in procuring reference materials and supplying the details about the dogs' lives.

A peek ahead: March's Animal Welfare Week will profile Paws With a Cause service dogs - there are some incredibly special stories and faces scheduled for that week. ....not to diminish the faces and stories that will come in between now and then, though.....

And a big thank you again to my clients who made purchases this week. In addition to Gentry and Brady from today, there are three other Best Friends Animal Sancuary dog paintings that are still available - Hutch from Monday, Freckles from Tuesday, and Simba from yesterday. 20% of the sales from each of these paintings will get donated to the animal sanctuary to further their remarkable efforts. And don't forget to catch the National Geographic channel's Dog Town this evening.

Also, I still have a few heart shaped dog tag paintings available - you may view those on the blog under January 29th - http://www.paintingadogaday.blogspot.com/ . With paypal and priority shipping, they could arrive in time to surprise your Valentine.

Thanks, as always, for looking at my artwork and sharing it with your friends and family.
I appreciate it immensely,
Kim
