This is what happens when you walk into the house and the dogs haven’t seen you for two years! Instant happiness, that’s what. Levitating hounds. Whirling doggishness.
Humming right along. I don’t always like what I’m ending up with but it’s okay because I’m learning! I’m excited to try again every day. Onward and upward. That’s the ticket.
“Turning Out Austin” is a painting about my niece Nathalie’s horse, a rescued thoroughbred and a sweet looking boy. Nathalie’s friend Pam is currently taking good care of Austin. I spent the last week with Steve camped behind Pam’s house in Tucson, AZ. This painting is based on a photo I took of Pam and Austin one morning last week. He was hungry! Pam was turning him out into a bigger paddock to have his breakfast and he just couldn’t wait to start eating!
It was lovely to hang out with Pam and her horses. I’ll have to paint some more of them soon!
More trip paintings to come
I’ll be posting more daily paintings from my recent camping trip out west, so stay tuned!
This painting is available on ebay.
