"Sal," 6" x 8", acrylic on museum quality panel, depicting a blood bay Quarter Horse. This is a commissioned portrait and a Christmas surprise, and as such will be headed to a good hiding spot in his new home shortly.

But never fear - I am able to paint something just as special for you - shoot me an email and we'll get your project started!! Sketches start at $99 and panels like Sal's start at $329.

Happy Friday!!

And thanks for following along,
Kim, who is throwing together a pot of veggie soup and getting herself ready for some high school football Caped Crusader style. Join me in crossing fingers and toes so that the predicted thunderstorms skirt the stadium and our boys get to play some ball!!!

Western Breezes, Palomino and Cowgirl in the Sage Brush. New Watercolor by Deborah Flood


Western breezes Medium Web view

Western Breezes  22 x 29.5 inches. Watercolor on 300lb Arches Paper.

Retail: $2,500.00

I can hear you saying, wow that’s a large watercolor! Well, I can assure you, you are right!

The yellows, reds, and purples that grace this gorgeous Palomino pops out of the aqua colored Sage brush and the blues of the young Cowgirl’s outfits. They make a wonderful play of complimentary colors.

The locks of the Cowgirl and the mane and tail of the horse, flitter in the Western breeze. It’s a hot day, but the coolness of the blue Mountain and Sage combined with the breeze keeps them comfortable.

This painting has been created for inclusion in my Solo Exhibit in 2013 at the International Museum of Art of El Paso, Texas.

Thank you for taking a look and enjoying my Watercolors!

The Stretch Run by Kimberly Kelly Santini


The initial block in happened overtop an orange underpainting (above).

I slowly worked my way across the panel, defining shapes and forms as I went.

ALl photos in process of "The Stretch Run," 9" x 36", acrylics on museum quality panel, $699 unframed. Inquiries may come to me.

When in Saratoga two weeks back, I spent a day at Spa Fine Art, painting and mingling with the public. This is the piece I finished while there, a painting I left in their care. I don't doubt that they will find the perfect home for it.

Meanwhile, if you are interested, let me know, and I'll introduce you to the Spa staff. And arrange for you to see a true completed painting image, too.

Kim, who is ever so eager to start painting some of her Saratoga shots, but has to focus on more immediate deadlines (aka The Real World) first
