NEW PAINTING Surrender

  Kimberly Kelly Santini   artist, instructor, daydreamer "Surrender," a new Talisman painting, 24"x24"x2", acrylic mixed media on a flat panel. Surrender will be available to purchase, along with a handful of sister paintings, at a future date. In the meanwhile, inquiries may always come   to me. It’s all about the details, and this one has plenty. Complete with painted sides that include a fat and happy bumblebee and a blue jay feather. I love this one.  Online students   are also getting a video short about the making of Surrender with exclusive bits about my inspiration and technique sources. As always, you can reach out to me directly with any questions about becoming a student or a collector or both! Thanks so much for following along my art journey. Thanks, as always, for following along with me and my artwork. Be well, Fondly, Kim

NEW PAINTING Oscillate

  "Oscillate," a new Talisman painting,  18"x24", acrylic and graphite on a flat panel. Oscillate will be available to purchase, along with a handful of sister paintings, at a future date. In the meanwhile, inquiries may always come   to me. Ponies can be sneaky and rather opinionated. But they can also be someone's entire world. This little one is all of that, but the viewer, at least, is relatively safe from her quick little feet. Go ahead and say hello. Oxy is nickering at your approach. Lean into her shoulder - doesn't it radiate the warm sun? Sink your face into that mane of sweetgrass and breath in the clear, crisp sky while her velvety nose seeks out a peppermint or two. Thanks, as always, for following along with me and my artwork. Be well, Fondly, Kim

NEW PAINTING Dogwood

  "Dogwood," a new Talisman painting,  24"x30:, acrylic on a flat panel. Dogwood will be available to purchase, along with a handful of sister paintings, at a future date. In the meanwhile, inquiries may always come   to me. There was a profoundly beautiful period during the creation of Dogwood where I sensed her coming to life. I watched her take shape alone in the studio. It was as though she bloomed just for me. Well, she did. And it was sacred. At first I was a little melancholy that this sort of magic isn't sharable with you. But then I realized that it was her gift to me, as a thank you for picking up my brushes to begin with. So when I do send Dogwood out into the world, we will always have had that initial time together. All the more reason to value the journey and not just the end result. Thanks, as always, for following along with me, Be well, Fondly, Kim
