"Hush" 14 x 18 oil on linen
I didn't realize it had been quite so long since I'd updated the blog! I think I've finished this painting - don't you love how sure we artists are of ourselves? My working title for this was, "Not Here, Mom!" but I've decided to call it "Hush." This is 14 x 18 oil on linen.
Billy, featured here as a foal, is now three years old and made his first start yesterday. He handled everything very well, and was fifth in his initial effort, earning a cheque in the process. It's a very encouraging start to his career. You can watch the replay, thanks to Woodbine's You Tube site!
I will be taking this and at least two other paintings to be photographed this week. I always do this with paintings that are too large to scan, so I have a high resolution file from which to make prints. Pirak Studios does a great job photographing artwork, and also offers giclée printing services. I'm probably going to have them do a proof of each of the three paintings I'm taking so that I can offer reproductions. Stay tuned for more information!
