A New Arena
I find that, as an artist, it is often difficult to promote change to a style that provides comfort. For the past several years, I have promoted pet portraits; pets being dogs mostly. I learned their character, their anatomy, and I have been successful capturing their spirit. I still struggle with many, but know that in the end I will succeed.
Horses amaze me. They are so... spirited, commanding, regal.
Last month I took on a new challenge. A challenge to enter a new arena so to speak, and painted my first horse. An anatomy, spirit and personality quite different from the canines I have become comfortable with. I admire their beauty, as I do canines, but there is a quality about a horse that is not comparable to a dog. Majestic. Meet "Majestic", my first equine portrait.
