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.

Another Black Lab

"You Owned My Heart (Lucy)," 6" x 8", pet portrait of a black lab mix, acrylic on canvasboard, $324. Inquiries may come to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

SOLD.
 
Lucy's saga continues. Here is another portrait of the same dog that inspired yesterday's painting, but this one is a more literal likeness.
 
What makes this painting hum? The tension between the orange and blue - opposites on the color wheel, that, when placed alongside each other, amp up the others' presence. Experiment with opposites at home and see the great combinations you get - this can work with a centerpiece built of limes and eggplant as well as it can with paint.
 
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my paintings with friends and family.
I'm looking forward to painting again for you tomorrow,
Kim
