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.

Lacey, Mixed Breed


"Lacey," 6" x 8", mixed breed dog, commissioned pet portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (or so I think - I've tweaked my original version, and hope this one is in line with what the client wanted - a sweet and gentle face). Inquiries may always come to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .
 
Such a busy day today. Started out with a wonderful visit with my Grandmother, who regaled us with stories of her childhood, hearing homemade root beer bottles explode in the cellar (my husband and son have embarked on some serious soda-brewing). The day drew to an end at a local cantina, surrounded by friends, watching a good friend's teenage daughter's band perform their first gig (oh to have the talent they do in just the tip of my pinky - become a fan at their website - the band is called Church & Broadway.).
 
Anyways, that takes me to this moment, an event later one, when my family is all tucked in, quietly asleep. Except for the dog, who is contentedly snoring at my feet. And I'm trying to post my painting and sneak up to bed myself, to spend a little time with the latest issue of American
 Art Collector Magazine before having to rise early and get the kids all on the bus (winter break is over with in the morning!).
 
I dream that one day I'll be on the cover American Art Collector, just like one day Mosey, Jordan and Connor (aka Church & Broadway) will have a recording contract.
 
I bet they'll beat me to the punch, but I'm ok with that.
Thanks so much for looking at my artwork,
Kim
