Eve is ready for a home


Eve, 24"x30", acrylic on flat panel, $1300 plus s&h to the first asking nicely, which you can do via my website or with a sweet note to me. (PSST!! wanna learn to paint something like Eve, check out "Intuitive Painting," my online class with Kara Bullock.)

Painting concepts are showing up these days at the oddest times. Typically I find my imagery inside my dreams, but there's been a shift. Lately ideas are coming direct to me during waking hours. This one showed up as I was rolling my yoga mat one icy cold snowy day in January. There was a bear and an apple tree, but not the visual, just a knowing. I had a sensation of the weight of the tree - the branches, greenery and fruit - filled the cavity of the bear's head, and the trunk trickled down the right hand edge. There was plenty of blue sky and sunshine I could feel but not really see. 

I set out to explore this in paint, and two completely different pieces emerged. This is the most amazing part of my painting process - I know it will happen every time and yet I still am awed. An idea shows up and then I channel her into being. And there isn't always a one to one relationship between the idea and the artwork - an idea can birth multiple pieces.

It's fascinating in that I show up to work each day, never knowing where I will wander, but trusting it will teach me something. And at the end of the adventure, I have a lovely painting to show for it.

Eve can be viewed up close, in a room setting, and even purchased over on my website.  Thanks for the privilege of sharing my art with you.

All my best, warmly, Kim

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

NEW! Etsy Store

One of my favorite unsold paintings from 2008, "Lashes & Corkscrews," 5" x 8", acrylic on canvasboard, depicting a tobiano buckskin curly horse, $289. Inquiries to (but read further on how you can get a special deal on this painting!). Now it's ridiculously easy to browse my painting archives. All you have to do is visit my Etsy store . Etsy has a Shopping Cart (so you can pile it high with purchases from a variety of artists), is integrated with Paypal (although you may still pay by check if you prefer to), and is terribly simple to navigate. When the week has ended, I will have listed almost 100 of my favorite (UNSOLD!) paintings here, grouped loosely by subject matter. During 2009 I'll update the shop regularly, and add non-Dog-a-Day pieces as a bonus, thus making it easy to search for that perfect gift. Watch my daily postings for announcements, promotions and discount codes. If you do not receive the Dog-a-Day emails (
