Day Three of Kentucky Derby week. Four years ago today, I was fulfilling my duties as the Official Artist of The Kentucky Derby, sitting in a box at the finish line at Churchill Downs, watching the running of The Kentucky Oaks. And today I'm working in my jammies from home - but I am wearing a hat! a baseball cap adorned with roses! Sigh. Good times.

"Colliding Worlds" is another paint over, although the entirety of the previous painting (a Firefly one) is completely buried. That sometimes happens. And I guess it also plays into the painting's concept - expectations vs reality - nicely, too.

Now to figure out what I'll paint tomorrow. I'm all out of these little 16x20 canvases, and I feel like I get a head start when they already bear layers of marks...... maybe I should go dig in my archives and see what I can find in older works that haven't yet sold.

I always say, as long as I continue to own the painting, it's subject to be revised on a whim. Revisions could include a total make over!

Thanks, as always, for following along with my art journey,
Warmly, Kim

"Blue," 16" x 20", acrylics on panel, not for sale. Not even if you ask nicely. My family will burn me at the stake if I let this one go.

When My Better Half works nights (like he is tonite), I play while the sun's up and work at the end of the day. It's a fun change to my normal routine.

Today included a little day trip with one of my favorite peeps in one of our favorite places. It was a delight to enjoy each other's company while the rest of the world was at work.

And tonight I had blocked time out to paint for a juried exhibit. My entry is due next week, and, true to form I waited until the nth hour. Because the next painting is always going to be the better one. Well, not always, but I do like to pretend. And I think tonite I might have played my cards well.

Well, mostly I played my cards well. You see, I turned my back, and Blue - yes, sweet little adorable - ate half my pizza** while I was feeding Gertrude Stein. Gertie the bunny, not Gertie the art…

The Spell She Casts (Medicine Hat #13)

Kimberly Kelly Santini
paintings with soul
because our world needs more beauty
"The Spell She Casts (Medicine Hat #13)," 16" x 20" x 1", acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas, image painted around the side, so no need to frame unless you wish. And yes, that glow you see in the image is gold paint reflecting the light - this piece will move and shimmer as you pass by. She is $649 plus s&h to the first one asking nicely. Inquire directlyto me- I accept personal checks, paypal, venmo and will arrange payment plans.

This Medicine Hat painting is number 13, so of course that association alone had me thinking about magic. If you love the company of equines, you know first hand the spells they cast. And that their magic lingers long after they have left.

Yes, that is copper paint reflecting the studio lights on the horse's shoulder, and yes, that is a silvery haze around her face. Because starlight sparkles. Just like you.
