Direct from my garden to your walls

If you follow me on socials (FB and Insta), you may have seen the various groupings I've been doing with the abstract paintings this summer. I collect a handful of them and then play with various arrangements and overlaps on the studio floor. It's a fantastic way to reframe the designs and allow the paintings to have conversations with each other.

I've also discovered that some of the paintings feel stronger when they are together. Not that the individual paintings are not little delights on their own, but when put in the company of others their sum is much greater.

Such is the case with this grouping, a collection of panels started plein air (outside in my garden) and finished in the studio. All three are thick with luscious paint and richly colored individual "portraits" of my favorite dahlias in bloom and the garden bed they call home. You get an overview painting along with two closeups. You can keep all three for yourself or keep your favorite and gift the other two.

You can see the piece in greater detail here, view up close (I'm telling you that paint is THICK!) and in a room setting, and find a link to purchase.

Let me know if you would like a payment plan (30% non refundable deposit with the balance plus s&h paid off within a year) - those are set up on an individual basis and not processed through my website.

This curated collection will be available until September 9th after which I will allow the individual pieces to go out. Let me know if you want just one or two of them, and I'll keep you in the loop, k?

Thanks so much for your interest in my artwork,
All my best, warmly, Kim

Picture Book "A Dog Named Blue" - now available!!

The cover of "A Dog Named Blue," now available from Blurb publishers. When I first painted Amelia I never imagined that she would be re-christened "Blue" and inspire a book. In her defense, Amelia had a number of other partners in crime - animals who's portraits seemed to fall into a specific color category and prompt color-centric names. In typical ADD fashion, my brain started spinning 100mph. What if I turned those muses' paintings into a picture book for animal loving kids? I shared my idea with three friends in the industry, and they eagerly offered their expertise. I am truly indebted to them. Illustrator and author Matt Faulkner and children's book author and literacy expert Kristen Remenar edited an early version of the draft. They suggested key plot/conceptual changes that made it oodles better. Designer Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson worked her magic, pairing the images with perfectly color

Tabby Kit

"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 . 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 dis
