My Saratoga gallery asked for some pieces around 8" x 10" or smaller and I got the seemingly-brilliant-at-the-time idea to create a series of horse butt racing scenes, all individual. So I set my easel up with four, planning to attack the first batch all at once.
And then that seemingly-brilliant-at-the-time idea blossomed into something entirely different.
What if instead I painted an entire field of horses, running away from the viewer, but stretched them artistically across the four panels? I would end up with four different paintings, but when they were assembled, they become one combined image.
So I spent the last 6 days trying to answer that question. I think I got my answer!
But what do you think?
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork,
Warmly, Kimberly Santini

Originally I had titled this piece "Siesta," because the foal looked incredibly sleepy in my reference photo. However, somewhere along the way, that changed a bit. So I'm open to suggestions!
Congratulations to JR who suggested "Sprout" as the title - she will receive a cell phone case in appreciation for her mad painting naming skills!

New Mustang Painting, fresh off the easel!
"Spring in the Mountains"
20 x 21 Inches.
Oil on hand stretched Linen Canvas. (yes, I put together the stretcher bars, and cut the canvas, and stretched it to the bars. Very hands on work of art!)
Since the passing of my artist grandmother, I have her supplies and materials. So I’ve been stretching the rolled Linen canvas onto stretcher bars.
I have found that I enjoy stretching my own, and building the size I want, and not relying on a store or manufacturer to decide for me. It’s rather freeing, and feels a lot more like a hands on experience and piece of art!
I worked up this painting, from a reference photo I took on my trips out to New Mexico.
Purchase inquiries welcome. And the piece is listed on my website in the Oil Painting Portfolio.

Sometimes time is all you need.
After taking a break from this piece over the weekend, this morning I saw immediately what needed to be done. And I did it. Or so I think - we'll see what my eyes tell me tomorrow morning!
Meanwhile, I sorted through 77 Valentines Day Painting Giveaway entries - you can see the finalists on FB. Which photo do you think I'll be painting on Friday?
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
