Buckskin & Baby

"Buckskin & Baby"
8" x 10" acrylic on gessoed masonite
Art on the Avenue

When I'm working on commissions, I find I need to intermix some small paintings 'for me' to keep me from getting too tight. So yesterday I put aside the oil portrait in favor of this horse painting that I've been mulling for some time. I also wanted to put something fresh in Art on the Avenue. My monitor shows it a bit more orange than the true buttery buckskin color on the mare, but maybe yours has it just right... hope so. Paintings always look better in person anyway.

Beautiful painting, sure to touch many people's hearts. I know about painting too tight I am guilty of that too.

I was just thinking about you and noticed I had dropped off your follow list for some reason. Well I'm back on and enjoying your beautiful work and sage advice again.
