Kentucky Derby Week - Baby Girl by Kimberly Santini

"Baby Girl," 7" x 12", acrylics on museum quality panel, depicting a Thoroughbred filly full of baby curls and chestnut precociousness. This painting is part of my daily painting project and available for $529 to the first one asking nicely.

This is the 8th Derby Week I've celebrated with daily paintings of horses. How time does fly......

It all starts with a dream, doesn't it? And what better epitomizes the dream of those following horse racing than a baby Thoroughbred, all gangly legs and full of promise?

The reference photo inspiring this one is from a visit to friend and fellow artist Linda Shantz's farm. The painting stars Brigette Merlot, now a 2 year old who is just learning about life at the track.

Thanks as always for following along with my artwork,
