Tis the Season… for Commissions! 

My latest work is a portrait of a handsome Quarter Horse named Flyer.  The owner contacted me with a photo she really liked – the lighting was atypical for a portrait – but the interplay of highlights and shadows cast by a nearby (out of view) tree created an interesting challenge to capture in paint. I was excited with the chance to take on something a bit different.  The end result is an unusual play of light that works nicely to compose a painting that is truly unique and will likely be treasured for many years! 

I’ve a few more commissions taking turns on my easel, the others aren’t for Christmas (obviously, lol), I’ll share them as each one reaches the finish line!

Just a reminder that my Commission Special continues only through 12/31/11 – I still have room for a few more.  I also offer gift certificates for those giftee’s that are pickier than others! 

Also, don’t forget to check out my Etsy Store for Prints ($1 shipping through 12/31/11), Greeting Cards and a sale on select Originals: Equine, Bovine and Southwest (marked down 20-50% through 12/31/11)!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everybody!
