For aesthetic reasons, if I don't use capitilization then how do I tell Vim's spell checker to ignore these mistakes? Currently I see a blue line under these mistakes.

For example:

i like to paint. painting is my passsion.

I would like only passsion to be marked as wrong, and i and painting should not be marked as incorrect.

You can try making 'spellcapcheck' empty:

:set spellcapcheck=

I don't know if that will work for "i" which is not correct anywhere. For that you can put your cursor on an "i" and type zg (or zG if you don't want it to be permanent) to mark it as correct.
