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.
