Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! I unfortunately lost my job right before Christmas, but I see it as an opportunity to find a job I really enjoy, and to focus more on my personal artwork and business! I am always accepting commissions or requests for prints! Feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or contact me at my Facebook page! I also have an online shop with prints, bags, shirts, phone covers, and more!
Yesterday I completed a new painting! My family and I had an up-close encounter with some “wild” deer at a local park, so I took lots of photos then, and decided to paint one! I will probably upload the reference photos soon!
Here are my steps and the final painting at the bottom! Thank you for looking!
more under painting – they always start out looking so horrible aaahhhh.
Deer have a lot of hair…
Final painting! Prints are available if you are interested :) Thank you!
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!
Manolete’s Pyro Gyro Show
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!
