It's been wonderfully crazy the last 10 months or so, as eager collectors have been buying my work, often while it remained unfinished. While I do truly love that the paintings were/are resonating so deeply, I also realized that I needed to institute some changes in how I offered them for sale. Selling immediately wasn't serving my newly discovered desire to savor what the pieces were meant to teach me, and it also prevented them from having conversations with each other here in the studio, inspiring and furthering my work even more.
So I began to think about offering collections of "sister" paintings together - choosing a day and time where a small collection of new work will become available, and sharing that with you, my wonderful supportive fans and collectors, a little bit in advance. (The best way to be informed of these sales is to be - and stay - subscribed to my newsletter. And to read them in a timely fashion, too, I suppose! )
So are you ready? Mark your calendars because the first ever Santini Studio Sale is next week!!
This small collection of new original paintings will be available to purchase directly off my website Monday, January 31st, at noon eastern time.
How will it work? Well, at noon eastern, the paintings pictured will be added to those on my"Available Paintings" page, with an "Add to Cart" button (interested buyers will click on the image of the painting they wish, and on the subsequent page choose the "Add to Cart" button). The paintings will sit there until a collector completes the sale (once the sale has been completed, the "Add to Cart" button is no longer available). First come, first serve.
You will not see the new paintings on the page until noon on Monday. However, I will say that there currently is a wonderful collection ofavailable workthere at the moment, and I would be happy to combine shipping with anything currently available and a Monday purchase.
I've never offered my work for sale before in this manner, and I truly do not know what to expect - whether or not the paintings will find immediate homes. But, as my grandmother would say, I am looking forth to it.
INTERNATIONAL COLLECTORS: My website does not have a means for me to correctly charge international ship costs. For international shipments, I fully expect there will be additional fees beyond what the system calculates at the time of sale. My current plan is to address this surplus cost via a separate invoice after the paintings' sale and we have a final weight for the parcel. I am happy to discuss this with you at any time.
Thanks, as always, for following along with me and my artwork.
Figment 3," 18" x 24", acrylics and graphite on panel, $799 plus s&h to the first asking nicely. I accept paypal, venmo, personal checks and payment plans. Inquiries may always come to me . I am thinking about the elements, and wondering aloud (and with my paints) as to whether I can paint something that contains all of them. Spirit. Fire. Air. Water. Earth. This one is a step closer in that direction. Thanks so very much for following along on my art journey, Warmly, Kim
"Tabby Kit," 5" x 7", acrylics on a museum quality panel, depicting a tiny little orange striped guy from Morgue File . This painting can be yours for $289, which includes s&h inside the US. And in case you didn't see it, a little doodle of him is also available for sale here . Inquires may come directly to me . Although it certainly doesn't FEEL like spring here (snow and ice and wind chills, brr!), I can tell that spring is coming. The mercury is rising a wee bit each day and the days are getting longer and brighter. Over the weekend we drove with the moonroof open just to feel the sun's meager and oh-so-very-welcome warmth (although the heat in the car was cranked, too, in the interest of full disclosure!). I wanted to work with spring-like colors today, and this little guy was still on my mind , so I grabbed a small panel and got to work. Of course, I also have Poppy to finish and some changes to make to another po
“Rapt (Shadow),” from the Larger than Life series, 16”x22”, acrylic black lab mixed breed pet portrait on gallery wrapped canvas, $699. Inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org . SOLD. This is Shadow, who went missing on Sunday night. He belongs to a friend of mine, and has been a fixture in our community for many years. Errant fireworks scared the silly old guy into running off, and his family is busy searching for him. (If you happen to be in the Lake Orion/Oakland County area and have seen Shadow, please call 248-391-0867 or 248-391-6817) I’m confidant that he is safe (somewhere!) and awaiting discovery, but meanwhile, couldn’t help myself from posting his portrait as today’s dog a day painting . He’s constantly on my mind, and probably will remain so, until he finds his way back home. Hug your four legged guys while you can! Thanks, as always, for looking. And for sharing these paintings with friends and family, Kim Kimberly Kelly Santini http://www.turtledovedesigns.com/ dis
