Horse Eye in Pastels

Horse Eye Study in Pastels
6 x 6 pastels on sanded paper

It's been so long since I painted a horse that I was just itching to work on a horse eye study in pastels. Did you know I used to paint mostly horses?  Yep. I was even in the old Equine Art Guild and the Guild of International Equine Artists years ago.  I also worked on this mural . . .  Check me out and my contribution under the artists' list. :-D

Anyway, all that just to say that I miss painting horses and will paint more in the future.

While I was painting this, I recorded the whole process non-stop and uploaded to YouTube and my Facebook in a speed painting video.  I also wrote out short blurbs explaining my process.  I hope you give it a look and enjoy!  Also, I invite you to please go LIKE my Facebook page and subscribe to my YouTube channel so you never miss anything!  I have neglected to post on my blog in the past, so do not miss out!

Thanks for watching.  And reading.  ;-)

In case you missed it . . .

Dog, Horse, Cat, and Other Pet Portraits

It has been a while since I've posted anything, so I would like to say a big HELLO!

I've taught art during my hiatus, and have been recharging my batteries, finding new inspiration, working on other projects, and coming up with so many great ideas I want to start working on in the very near future.

I am also taking this opportunity to say that yes, I am doing pet portraits.  The busy Christmas season will start soon, so it's important to book now before the rush to ensure you have your spot! If you or anyone else you know has a dog, cat, horse, bunny, bird, or any other pet, I am available for custom oil portraits working from your high resolution photos.  Just please make sure the photos are clear and high resolution.  You can visit my website at to have  a look at the sizes and pricing.

All portraits are painted on quality linen canvas, and then varnished with museum quality Gamvar to ensure archival quality and protection.  The process is really quite simple and I work with you to ensure 100% satisfaction.  All you need to do is email me a high resolution photo of your pet, and we discuss the details. You approve the final painting before shipping and payment.   Easy peasy.

I'm also planning on creating mini lessons which will be uploaded to YouTube.  They will feature various subjects, but will be kept simple and understandable for everyone, from the novice beginner, to the advanced student.  I will also create little mini downloadable e-books which will accompany the video lessons so that they may be referred to and will contain more detail.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope to have a lesson soon and some pet portraits to show!

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm also leaving you with a little video of past daily paintings.
