“I just finished a huge painting let’s do ANOTHER HUGE PAINTING”

Cause that is ALWAYS a good idea!

At least this time I painted with Acrylic, and did something a little less intense!

I got motivated a couple sundays ago, I did this whole thing in one day! This is a 16×20 board canvas, painted with acrylic paints. I have missed doing horses, so this was a lot of fun! Other than all that mane. Goodness.

I have posted the work-in-progress shots below (and I was “livestreaming” it on my facebook page as it happened) as well as the final piece with some detail shots!

Thanks for looking!

Michigan Renaissance Festival – Huzzah!

Hello!

The last couple weekends I was at the Michigan Renaissance Fair, and had a lot of fun taking photos of the jousting and falconers! I am posting the best ones here, but if you would like to see more, head over to my deviantart page! The jousting troupe is Brothers in Arms Jousting. Thank you for looking! Enjoy!

Therapeutic Horses & Facebook

Hello!

Last week I got to hang out at the local Therapeutic Riding stables, WETRA, and photograph all their lovely horses. They were all inside when I got there, cause the flies were particularly annoying outside that day, next time I will plan to go early in the morning one weekend to get them outside! Still had a lot of fun hanging out with the horses and seeing people I used to work with!  I also posted a couple photos over on my Instagram that day!

One more tip: I started a facebook page for my art! You can check it out HERE! Not too much up there yet, I have to figure out which stuff to post and then how to post it! I would appreciate it if you checked it out and possibly gave it a “like”, and share with all your friends! I will also be opening a society6 shop soon, but all my work is always available to buy, all you have to do is ask!

Thank you! Enjoy the photos!

Bright Winter

Hello!

I just realized I forgot to post this painting! I finished it a few weeks ago. It was my first attempt at gouache paints, and I have fallen in love with the medium! I used reference from a photo I took. It’s been awhile since I have done a horse piece, I missed drawing them! I have another painting that I am working on right now, hopefully I will finish it in a few weeks!

Thanks for looking!
