I thought I’d finished the oil pastel of the little girl, but after pulling the tape, signing it, and taking photos I’m not so sure. So it may still be a work in progress. Or a stepping stone to the next endeavor. Time will tell. Also, I don’t think the color is accurate in this photo. Is there a class for taking photos of one’s artwork? Must find out.
These are other pieces that I have finished in the last couple of months. These two of the horse are from a friend’s fantastic photographs of her beautiful horse who had lived to a ripe old age. I had a dilemma when I started these as they were not commissioned and I had to decide if I was doing a portrait of the animal or expressing myself through his image? I went for doing my own thing but the horse’s owner insisted that I’d captured his looks and personality, so that was an honor.
