This one's a fighter!

He fought me on the color so hard I accidentally snapped off that back leg, to find a major air bubble there! All fixed and back on track now. He is my first PALOMINO in oils, eek! He is scheduled to be a tobiano, unless Jan changes her mind. Here are some in progress shots for ya:

I see a portrait of this guy in the future

Assuming I am still at the current barn this will be this years xmas present for the barn owners. They just bought this 18 hand 10 or so year old Clydesdale gelding. Such a sweety, needs some more groceries at the moment. Broke to drive and they will break him to ride as well. I got to help adjust their harness to him yesterday. His name is Logan.

But I want to keep her!

But its a commission so I cant! She needs her high whites and blaze, hair, eyes and hooves done yet once she is dry but I'm pretty happy with her :)

I  have three more stablemate resin commissions here now so no more til they are done! I dont want to get overloaded and under pressure.

Update on that silver dapple

Progress has been slow on him because he is heavy and hard to hold. I finished the one side and let it dry before I moved on to the other. I managed to still make them match! He still needs some work on the face and legs before hes done, then he will need to dry again for a while before I do all the hair!




Commissions update: Mindy has a base coat of oils, keeping the color secret for now :)
Doodlebug is primed and will be ready soon for his acrylic basecoat of white.

Fun at the Tiny show!

Went to a fun show Tiny show saturday. It was a nice day to get out and see friends! I was able to get some of my new oil painted pieces out in the light of day and they were very well received! I also came home with 2 mini resin commisions and Candy Liddys new bad-arse mule! I'm excited to paint a Mindy! She will be solid with chrome. The doodlebug for the same person will be either a Tobiano with cat tracks or an appy if I feel like I can do it. Leopard apps are not my thing! I can look at a paint horse picture and translate it to a model but I have a hard time with appys. I will have to find a practice victim first.

Mindy will go first, shes nearly prepped now, hopefully one last coat of primer to go.

Doodle bug did very well at the show (as did the mini Ravenhill) he just needs finish spray and then he is all done. He is for sale but I would love to be able to keep him.
