Both of these paintings were painted from reference photos taken by people other than me. If an image is good and a person is kind enough to share, I don’t mind that the same image might be painted by 100 other artists. We all have a different take on it, so I’m okay with that.

The first is from a photo by Mel Clarke. Some years I’ve been lucky enough to snap photos of foals, but some years I miss the right days.

This next one is from a shot by Gary O’Dell, who photographs wild horses in Arizona.

And while I am here, I have been meaning to ask for people to share photos of your own pets for me to paint. I have lots of horse photos now but not so many dogs. I would give you first opportunity to buy the finished painting, but if you do not want to, I will sell it on etsy to someone who shares your love of pets. Leave a comment, and I’ll see if I can get my email address to you so you can share photos with me.

We’re hitting our 100+ degree days now. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be 105 or 107. I’m glad it took until mid-July to occur, because I really don’t like the hot days. I have similar sentiments about mid-winter. I’m sure you can relate.

Still, we’re only 3 weeks away from the county fair, hooray! I just know there will be lots of fun new faces there. I better remember to stock up on camera batteries. 😉

Above are four sold paintings. Can you tell I was on a color theme? I really like the warm ochre. And also, they are all painted with a brush, breaking from my recent knife-painting phase. I have actually ordered more brushes, so expect to see more coming soon!

Oh my gosh, it’s already July. We’re halfway to Christmas. Are you ready?

It’s never too early to ask me to paint something special so you’re ready with a present. No last minutes worries that way. 😉

These lovely dogs are custom pieces recently painted, just to show off a little.
