"Black Dog (Chloe)," 6" x 8", commissioned pet portrait (but shh - it's a Christmas gift!) of a mixed breed black dog, acrylic on canvasboard. I have a few holiday commission spots newly available (due to last minute cancellations - these spaces have been booked for 10 months+ ---- I am SO tired of this economy & the situations it is putting people in!!) - inquiries may always come to me.
Today I learned that I am one of fifteen artists chosen by Polo Player's Magazine for their annual Sporting Art Issue. This is a great honor as my little Dog a Day painting from the Preakness Virtual pARTy (check it out here) gets to rub shoulders with some artwork hailing from the best equine artists in the world. (psst! that Preakness link includes another mini painting lesson, so those of you who liked the last lesson, check this one out too!)
The entire Santini family is doing the Happy Dance tonite. You are welcome to join us!
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
PS Want a great gift this holiday season? Then order either one of the Painting a Dog a Day books - they are gorgeous summaries of the Dog a Day paintings. Painting a Dog a Day - the First Year covers 2006-2007, and That's 14 in Dog Years covers 2008. Information on how to order each book is on the Painting a Dog a Day blog and thestudio website.
