Just Busy Working

This week has gone by quickly. My days have been spent in the studio, or down at the barn. I have finished the above watercolor portrait of a certain black Tenn. Walker gelding , [who just so happens to live at our farm] and have started a painting of a local house .........sounds boring? Wait until you see it! This house has a story!!!

The next few days promise to be dreadful weather. So I am sure I will be staying in, working. I have two portrait commissions to work on and some writing that needs to be done. I am so grateful I don't have to travel far to go to work!

What A Face

For an Equine Artist, I paint a lot of dogs!!?

This Boston Terrier fellow was just begging to be painted, so as I am a sucker for any cute mug, here is what I came up with. It is a small [5 x 7"] casein painting on board.

Life has been a bit busy of late. I have been picked up by another gallery! This time in Millbrook, New York. Paintings need to be boxed, shipped and paperwork done. Being an artist is not all brushes and paints. There is a side of the business that takes doing that is dull and boring, but it needs to be done if we want to be able to do the creative part.
