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.

"Romeo," 24" x 24", commissioned portrait of a Yorkshire Terrier done in acrylic on museum quality panel. You met Romeo already - today he returned to my easel. He got his hair done and I took care of a couple other changes my clients had requested.

There are a in process photos of Rodeo over on the studio Facebook page - you'll have to scroll back to January 16th to see where it all began!

Want a Santini original of your own? email me. I promise to hook you up!!

I get lots of questions about how the portrait process works.

I start with your photos and a short bio of the animal. We discuss your priorities and a budget, and I build a composition designed to showcase the animal's personality.

I schedule a time frame to work on the painting, and when it's done, shoot you an email with a jpg of the piece.

We identify any necessary changes, work through those, then arrange payment and shipping details.

It's a pretty straightforward process. After all, I want to spend as much time as possible at the easel, painting the faces that you love so much.

A 5x7 custom original starring one face is $289 plus s&h. I am happy to set up payment arrangements. And I also offer gift certificates.

So what's holding you up? Let's talk about getting meaningful artwork into your home!!
