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: "A Little Glee (Hallie)," 6" x 8", acrylic on canvasboard; and "Glee (Hallie)," 10" x 12", acrylic on panel; both depicting a long-haired daschund. Inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

I enjoyed painting the two Silas's last Friday so much that I decided to do the same with Hallie. Here she is, both of her(!), in all her glory, romping through the spring grass.

Hallie belongs to Dee Dee Murry, a friend of mine who is an incredibly talented artist in her own right (http://www.deedeemurry.com/). Poor little Hallie has been wrung through the wringer this winter with back issues. Crate rest is a tough prescription for an active little one like Hallie. But all had healed come spring, and Dee Dee sent me photos of Hallie loving life. The joy in the dog's face was simply irresistable, and I begged her to let me paint Hallie this week (I had a client scheduled who hadn't yet gotten me photos).

Of course, as things go, Hallie's back flared up again over the weekend. So Dee Dee has been a little distracted, caring for Hallie and scheduling various vet/specialists appointments, and hasn't yet seen these paintings. One will go to her, and the other will head to an exhibition later this summer.

If you are interested in commissioning your own dog-a-day painting, please send me a note - ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com . I am booking new dog-a-day portraits for May 2009, and have a few 2008 holiday spots remaining for return clients.

Thanks, as always, for looking.
And for sharing these paintings and stories with your friends and family.
See you tomorrow,
Kim
