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.

"Chuckie," 4" x 5", old english sheepdog pet portrait, acrylic on board, $124. Inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

SOLD.

This painting was inspired by the real Chuckie, a dog from my childhood. Chuckie, a rescue who bumbled his way into a girlfriend's household, was aptly named because of his fondness for thawing hamburger. The real Chuckie was a mop of hair accompanied with a little pink tongue, a lot like this the painted version.

I love the palette of this painting - the colors (and the dog's grin) make me smile.

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