Horse Portraits

The horses are done! each portrait is 14x18 done in oil on linen and taken me a few months to complete as I didn't work on them exclusively. I worked at getting to know each horse over the summer and took a whole lot of photo's and made several drawings that take me "forever" to do. I'm pretty sure I've gotten their individual personalities.....but the test is to see what my neighbor thinks as these are their babies and they know them best.
They look great all framed up and ready to hang!

 Have a safe and happy holiday!

A post from the past, done in the winter of 2008 and still one of my favorites. A palette knife painting with rich color and thick paint. 
  Hope you enjoy it and thanks for your visit.

"Sun Tipped Morning"

10x12 Oil on Linen - This is a little larger version of the study I posted earlier. I have been very busy in the studio and fluttering around with holiday errands, aah love the
hustle & bussel of the holiday season!

Shiloh's portrait has just begun(on the left) and here I am checking to see what they will look like with the three of them hanging together....framed in smart looking barn wood frames with liners, I think they'll look pretty good.

Am very frustrated this morning with blog posting.....it just won't co-operate
with where I want to put things today!  
Hope you have a great day and thanks for your visit!
