Little Spider ~~ Painting a Dog a Day by Kimberly Kelly Santini

"Little Spider," 6" square, portrait of a Thoroughbred foal, done in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, $299. Spider's painting will go to the first one asking nicely.

It's tradition in the studio that, in honor of the first Saturday in May and the Kentucky Derby, Painting a Dog a Day gets turned over to the horses during Derby Week.

Spider's doing the honor of kicking things off in grand style. Hailing from a girlfriend's farm (fellow artist Linda Shantz), he's now a strapping 2 year old in training, learning to put those long legs to work.

And Linda's got a crop of 3 new foals this year.

Lots and lots of dreams waiting to be fulfilled!

Thanks for sharing my artwork with your friends and family,
And More News From the Equine Front.....

Over the weekend, two Painting a Dog a Day pieces earned special honors at the Dancing Horse Farm Equine Art Show.

"Freedom" received 3rd Place, and "A Gentle Breeze" took 1st in the Paintings category.

Many thanks to the jurors and exhibition staff for these awards!

And special thanks, too, to Dog a Day collector MB for sharing photos of her pony Nitro, who inspired the paintings.

Both paintings are available for purchase.

You may also order notecards of either painting:
