This painting I literally had sketched for two years, waiting for me to complete it. I’ve got another one that’s been languishing a similar length of time–maybe this will be the year it gets completed. Some I start out excited about, but then as I look harder at the details, I start to think something about it is too complex, or not enough detail, or just too difficult to attempt. I don’t know why I lost interest in this one, other than other ones just seemed more compelling. Strike while the iron is hot, and paint the most successful paintings.

In the end, I am happy with the play of colors over that shoulder. If I had painted this two years ago, I don’t know how I would have handled it. Today, success!

The reference photo for this one was from a lady on a facebook group who kindly shares her photos. I don’t have a source, otherwise, for Friesians, so am very grateful for the generosity of others, in this case, Elisha Clark-Jordan.

I have had a productive two weeks, so more paintings to come this week–woot woot!


Secondary colors are fun. A touch of green, and I would have used them all.

Already finishing up some commission work this year! So happy with all of these.

I was trepidatious about painting with a brush again, but whew, they worked.


So happy!  🙂

This will be my last painting this year.  What a way to go out with a bang.

He’s 30″x30″ so I think the largest one I painted all year.

These will be the last paintings I have which will be dry and ready to ship in time for Christmas. They are in my etsy shop now.  The closer the days to the holiday, the less I trust the post office because they start tossing the boxes and that’s when I’ve seen damage in the past. Thankfully only a handful of boxes in the 17 years (!!) I’ve been selling paintings, but still, I don’t like to take the chance.

Belgian hare, 10″x20″. SOLD, Thank you.


Horse friends, 18″x24″, oil on stretched canvas. Available in my etsy shop. Sold, thank you.
