Late Plate


I think I might be calling this one done. I began this 8 x 10 oil on Classen's Linen panel (by Signature) last September. At this point I should probably just say it's two unnamed racehorses, but in fact it's the finish of the 2008 Queen's Plate, with Not Bourbon beating out the filly Ginger Brew probably by about the extra length his tongue provided!

Below is the painting in the very early stages, as I worked on it at the CTHS Yearling sales. Now, if I start the painting of the 2009 Queen's Plate soon...when do you think I will have it finished?

I can hear the pounding and the crowd cheering. Nice work!
