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.

"Season to Taste," from the "Tags, Toys & Treasures" series. 8" square, still life painting depicting a vintage KenL Ration doggie shaped salt shaker with a milkbone. Inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com . (And, yes, I have the companion KenL Ration black kitty, too. We'll see what I can come up with for her painting!)

Today's painting is a little bit slap-happy, I'll admit. It could have something to do with the tiny little bouquet of crocus on my desk, fresh from the backyard. It could have something to do with the ridiculously fluorescent pink pig faced tennis ball that Finn's been dropping at the base of my easel all morning. It could be that I FINALLY got the paypal buttons to work on my website (HOORAY!!). It could be the freedom of working real big again, as I've started work on my latest larger-than-life stretched canvas, simply titled "Red Dog." Or it could be my new kicks - nothing like a great new pair of Nikes to keep me dancing at the easel (today I'm listening to some Albert King and Pinetop Perkins).

Lots of reasons to smile today.

And on top of that, it's Friday!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! I've got some old girlfriends in town for dinner tonite, and tomorrow we are off to a 60th wedding anniversary celebration for my husband's Aunt & Uncle. Lots of quality time with dear friends and family lined up over the next few days.

It'll get me all set for some serious studio time next week - I have a full calendar of dog-a-day commissions scheduled, and want to get significant progress made on this large canvas. I'll also be filming a segment for our local cable channel where I'll get to talk about and share stories from the Painting a Dog a Day project.

Thanks, as always, for looking and sharing these paintings with your friends and family.
See you next week!
