"Firstborn" 14 x 11 Oil on Linen

Well, I signed this painting today - that's supposed to mean it's done! I have enough other paintings on the go which I'm working hard to bring to completion, so that should help me leave this one alone. My final painting session was a few nights ago, when I was at that stage where I was thinking, "Just a couple more touches and it'll be finished" which usually means I should just stop! The specs: 14 x 11 oil on Raphael linen panel.

It's hard to believe this is the same cheeky little ten-week old I have out in the paddock right now. I am feeling sorry for her - she needs a buddy! She reminds me so much of Monster, resorting to racing the birds for entertainment. Oh well...we'll see what we can come up with!

Hopefully I'll be reporting back shortly with another newly signed piece!
