There were several pieces of art that I sold at the Keswick Horse Show that I didn't put up on the website. Largely due to the reason that they didnt fit into a particular category in my portfolios. Nevertheless, I might as well share them on my blog, because I loved doing them too!
Cardinal Couple: Acrylic and oil on wood blocks, with gold leaf. Commissioned.
My "Pig in Boots" was a very popular piece, so others with a similar theme were commissioned during the show. This one was specifically requested, the specifications being to add a calico cat with a pig wearing red boots. I didn't have a refrence image, so it turned out to look fairly illustrative. The customers were very happy with how it turned out. Great!
Whew, thrilled to have finished this in time and feel great about the final product. Moving on with my other portraits! Here is another portrait I completed this week.
This little guy is a Rat Terrier. His owners love him for his very special trick, where he'll leap over their leg when they hold it out. I've always been well versed in the personalities of Jack Russels, but this was the first time I've had a chance to play with a rat terrier. He was adorable, sweet, loyal, and calm. What a little cutie pie.
Currently busy working on three portraits this week. Trying to wrap up all commissions made before my last art show, and also underway with a new commission from Keswick.
Started working on this portrait of the lab and tick hound this afternoon, and made a TON of progress! It's been tricky to get the hound's face to look correct, since my reference image has the pup wearing a veil (awww, cute), but I had another picture sent to me of the hound with ears uncovered. Maybe I'll get this one finished this week as well! Coffee coffee coffee
