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.

Mandalyn again

"Green Mandalyn," 4" x 8", kitten portrait in acrylic on board. Proceeds from the sale of Mandalyn's painting will be donated to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (www.bestfriends.org) .Inquiries to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

Remember Mandalyn (from November 10th - http://tinyurl.com/56s37a)? Here's another painting of her. She is continuing to recover from her wounds, and seems to understand that she must leave them alone. She has won the hearts of the Best Friends staff, and I am certain that once her health issues are resolved, this little one will quickly find a forever home. You can follow Mandalyn's progress on the Best Friends website (listed above), in the Guardian Angel section.

This painting is similar in composition to "Fierce Hunter" (from November 20th - http://tinyurl.com/62rc39 ), but looks entirely different. A combination of softer colors and a variety of edgework keep Mandalyn's portrait from being a simple exercise in shape and color, like "Fierce Hunter."

I wish all my readers a wonderful Thanksgiving (even those outside the US) - I hope you are able to share Thursday with special friends and family, and can spend the day doing things you love.

I'm off to spend the day in the kitchen - something I love almost as much as painting. Thank you, as always, for reading the blog and following along with the stories.

Happy Thanksgiving! Kim
