Billie's Sweater ~~ Painting a Dog a Day by Kimberly Kelly Santini


"Billie's Sweater," 5" x 7", portrait of a French Bulldog, yet another installment in the "Black and Whites" series. This piece was done in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, and is looking for a new home. The painting is $289 plus applicable shipping and handling. Inquiries may always come to me.

Guess I've been on a roll lately with all the black and white paintings. Sometimes I get obsessed with a particular idea and just can't let go; I've been having a jolly good time painting these, so why should I?!

I'm also learning a lot. Working in series' is a great way to explore a concept in greater depth. And based on all the muses you've been emailing me about, I'll have plenty of material to keep this series going strong.

Thanks so very much for following along with my artwork!

PS Here's another "Black and Whites" painting! My goal with these pieces is to demonstrate the wealth of color apparent in objects that are seemingly straightforward.

If you have a four legged friend (or even a 3 legged - I don't want to discriminate here) that might qualify as a "Black and Whites" muse, please let me know!


Will U B My Valentine?

Yesterday I announced on my Facebook pagethat I would be painting one special Valentine this coming Monday.

Interested?

Then send 2-3 clear, non-flash photos of your pet to me, using the subject line of "Valentine" (this will help my email to filter all the entries straight into the appropriate folder). All entries must be received by midnight EST on Saturday, February 12th.

You can submit more than one pet, but please do them in separate emails.

I'll peruse the photos Sunday afternoon and choose the one who sings to me the loudest.

Said crooner will then star as Monday's Dog a Day painting.

And you'll be singing "Hallelujah's", too, because once it's dry, I'll ship the painting off your way!

So, will you be mine?!!
