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.

Rest (Hachi)


"Rest (Hachi)," 6" x 12", commissioned pet portrait, acrylic on canvasboard. I think Hachi is sold, but am waiting to hear back from my clients. I would be happy to start a wait list of parties interested in purchasing this painting, should they opt to pass.* Inquiries may always come to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .
 
*I paint the Dog-a-Days without any purchase commitment from my clients. They send photos, we book a date, and they patiently wait their turn. I send a jpg of the painting via email for approval, but sometimes life gets in the way and I don't hear back for several days. Meanwhile, I share the painting on the blog, and create a wait list for anyone interested in purchasing, should my client decline. No deposits and no money exchanges hands until I am able to show the painting. Wanna book a portrait of your own? email me!
 
Hachi is a mixed breed rescue (Blue Heeler and German Shepherd?) who crossed the bridge far too soon. Hachi (named for a famous loyal Japanese dog) suffered from perianal fistulas, a particularly nasty autoimmune disorder. He taught his family much about life, facing their limitations and embracing their talents. It seemed fitting to paint him relaxed and at peace, with his face softly illuminated (I'd also been told that Hachi's favorite activity - other than eating - was sleeping, an odd twist for one of suspected cattle dog lineage).
 
Thanks as always for looking at my art and sharing it with your friends and family.
See you tomorrow,
Kim
