Paintings With Soul

Since October 2006 I've been a daily painter, creating a new pet portrait at least 5 times per week. At first the paintings were mostly dogs, but over the years I've expanded my offerings to include a variety of animals, pets, children and other treasured heirlooms.

And yes, I accept commissions!

"Nest," 12" square, done in acrylics on a museum quailty 1/12" cradeled panel (image painted around all four sides), portrait of da Vinci, the newest Santini family member. Inquiries may come to me.
Additional views are posted inside the Mobile Uploads folder on the studio Facebook page.
And yes, I do accept payment plans!

Every year I choose a word that best encapsulates the sort of growth I'm aiming for the next 12 months. Past words have been Savor, Focus and Listen.

This year my word is Be.

That's it. Just Be. 

Be in the moment, be authentic, be silly, be compassionate. Whatever the situation calls for, be it with my entire soul.

It won't always be pretty, but it most certainly will be human.

What's your resolution?

Kim, who started her year of BEing by practicing at being a student - "Nest" required a do-over and still isn't what I envisioned, but it taught me much along the way - like letting the process take on a life of it's own
