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.

Silhouette, Black Cat


"Silhouette," 8" square, black cat portrait, acrylic on canvasboard. This one is mine.

Although inquiries may still come to me at ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com - I can always paint something special just for you.

You know, I hate this green carpet. It came with our house and is ancient and matted and just plain ugly. But because it was relatively clean, we left it and made other, more pressing, home improvements. (After all, it wasn't nearly as ugly as the copper and silver folied paisley wallpaper in the family room!). By the time we worked our way through all the other rooms and got to replacing the carpet, the cats were sick. It made no sense to put down anything new. Now we're talking about tearing it up, maybe even this weekend. So why am I not excited about getting it out of here?

The green, though, really makes a nice backdrop for Miah. My recent paintings of Miah remind me of ancient Chinese paintings, the ones with elegant ladies or flowers in beautiful lifelike detail set on a flat, glided or decorative surface. Both seem to have a stark beauty to them.

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