Back Into 'A Pair & A Spare'

"A Pair and a Spare" A work in progress. copyright 2011
With days of snow, snow, snow..and then more snow.....I have had time to get back into a large canvas I started some time ago. I am easily distracted....and some smaller works have been started and finished since I began this casein painting. BUT,  it is moving along famously now....I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with this piece. That always excites me!

I have gone back into the painting with more detail work and worked on shadows and highlights on the horses and  the spilling over hayrack. With only a bit more to do on this painting, I am heading to the studio now.

Details added but a bit more to go! The canvas is 30 x 40"

Nellie is telling me I need to take her on a walk first.....Today we are blessed with abundant sun and temperatures up into the mid 40's. It would be a shame to miss some of the off we go! The painting can wait a bit more.............

February sunshine- Winter snow

I truly envy your opportunity to work with horses. I love your paintings. They bring back many memories for me. Give those horses a pat for me.
