As I've mentioned before, I'm not stopping doing dog and other animal paintings, but I certainly do want to throw a landscape into the mix every chance I get, too. It was a bit intimidating to tackle this one, but I'm quite pleased with the results. Hope I can do it again with my next landscape!

This is one of my most favorite paintings I've done. I went with my daughter out to the barn where she rides these days; and while she rode, I visited with the other horses in their stalls, sketching them and just talking to them. This particular horse really got my attention, though; he was really friendly and curious about what I was doing. Anyway, I did this painting from the sketches and photos I shot that day. It was a really fun painting to do. It's an acrylic painting on an 11x14x3/4" stretched canvas and will be available on my website as well as other venues.

I am currently working on a different painting -- it's not a dog!! But it is a horse. My daughter, who is a dressage rider, asked me to accompany her and my little granddaughter to the barn where she rides a few days ago, and I did lots of sketches and took some really great photos. This painting is coming out of these sketches and photos. It should be done in a couple more days, and the original will be available on my website.
