FUZZY - Sold

This little pony lived just down the road from where I once lived in Chilliwack, BC. My friend Fab came over to paint with me and I needed something to work on so browsed through my photo collection and came across this little guy.  Such fun!

I decided to try something different. I took the reference photo for this painting one chilly morning in Maple Ridge, BC, just as the fog was lifting over a neighbor's pasture.

CALM - Sold

The 2nd in my little series of small horse paintings:

CALM - Acrylic on Linen - 5" X 7"

Friday, 20 November 2015


This is the little painting that started it all.  Worn out and struggling with an eye hemorrhage and still recovering from a torn back muscle, I was challenged by a friend of mine to do 3 paintings a day for 5 days. What?? I usually to a week to do a small painting!! But never one to back down from a challenge, I took it on. No time to print and crop photo reference, do my usual detailed drawing and block in, I grabbed a canvas and just painted.  This was the result:
