A Portrait’s Journey; Painting the Pharoah

I’ve been chomping at the bit (see what I did there?) to get around to painting American Pharoah, Triple Crown and Breeder’s Cup Classic winner, and the 2015 Horse of the Year.

Kentucky Derby Project Finally Revealed!

Squeaky Cat gets a treat.

A Portrait’s Journey; Part 1

Photo Session! This is the first part in a series sharing a glimpse into the course the creation of a portrait takes.
