 Contact me for availability

As promised, I am back at the easel and at the keyboard.  Today's painting is a study of a horse head.  I may have mentioned that I am starting an equestrian series and am familiarizing myself with horse anatomy.  I have great respect for horses, although I have very very little experience in the saddle.  I prefer to have 76 horses under the saddle in the form of my Harley-Davidson. I used a semi dry brush technique on this piece.  It almost has an egg tempura effect.

I'd be happy to paint your horse.

Ok. I'm in touch. We have a QH Buckskin and I will send you a few photos. You painted my daughter, Chelsea, and her dog, Moxie. Let me know your availability. I am in no hurry.

Send them on. Thanks Margaret.
