Painting Horses from Life




On Friday, I am driving to Robertson, WY to take a workshop from Jim Norton. I believe that continued growth and learning is essential to any career, and I am excited about this opportunity to learn and enjoy the company of other painters.
This week, I completed a commission, and worked on a series of small studies. Some of the studies, done on my "lunch break" were en Plein air. Those along with the ones completed in the studio, were done with the goal of capturing the real feel of the moment. I hope you enjoy these, if you would like to purchase one of these, please contact me.
