This one has a bleak feel to it, doesn’t it?

Not that it should, the pose is pretty standard, but the colors lead it that way.

A cold and bleak day. But one that’s sure to get better.

Didn’t she turn out lovely? I don’t always have my signature in the photo because the paint has to dry before I can come back and add the overlay signature. It would just be a big smear if I tried to do it while the paint’s wet. So that explains that!

palomino12x16This head turn is one of my favorite poses, so yes, I go there often.

I like the bits of blue shadow.

I felt really lucky to spot a black horse flashing a bit of shoe. I look at *all* the horses hoping to get a glimpse of shoe, but either the grass is too long, the saw dust too deep, the horse unshod entirely, or too much yard muck caught inches deep. I look, and sometimes I get lucky. The sun has to cooperate, too. It’s all a cross-your-fingers sort of thing, so I just don’t capture as many shoes as I’d like.

This one is on a chunky canvas. I stocked up on this size, 1-1/2″ deep, thinking I’d find it easier to sit down every day and just paint something small. It’s not happening yet, though.

Here’s several more paintings I’ve been asked to paint recently.

I love this guy’s little half smile.

I find it difficult to juxtapose enough highlights to make a dark color seem full of life, but look, I did it!

It’s hard to go wrong with bunnies. Bunnies are just so sweet.

This was a special request. The background in the reference photo was set up just right, so I included it. Sometimes I find too much background competes with the portrait, and try to  balance that out with a plain background so the pet can shine. This one worked out great, though.
