"Devotion," 18 x 36 Oil on Canvas

I could spend the first paragraph listing excuses for not posting more, but I won't bore you with those.  Despite the silence, I have been working away - the horses haven't completely swallowed me up, even though things haven't been completely quiet in that department!

This is the first WIP to pass into the realm of finished, or abandoned, take your pick!  Not signed yet, but I think I'm just about ready to make that particularly difficult move.  This is an 18 x 36 oil on canvas of Viv and Hugo, her first foal (now a yearling).  A couple of in progress pics lets you see some of the steps - above, what I call the "rough tonal" step, then below, the completed underpainting.   Next one in line is getting reasonably close to completion...stay tuned!
