I seemed to have settled into an area of 'speciality' thanks to the numerous murals I have done over the last couple of years. This specialty is painting life sized horses and farm animals. I paint portraits in oils on standard sized canvases and enjoy this very much but also have found a niche in painting large. In the photo you can see me working on a recent commission that will become an outdoor mural on an existing barn. The wood panels will be placed in the spot above a dutch door stall opening so from the house the owner can look out and see the family's much loved horses memorialized in their spot in the barn. I will be doing a whole series, each one a special horse in this family's lives over the years.
I loved this idea! We also have some special horses in our lives as I am sure many of you do too! My daughter's horse Flicka in particular is a once in a lifetime horse. I could not of asked for a sweeter, kinder soul to carry my daughter thru her childhood! Flicka is still with us but I want to remember this idea and do the same when the time comes so I can look out my window to my barn and remember some very special times of my daughter's childhood.
