DDay in the Spring

You may recognize this handsome fellow from a while back.  Although the painting had potential, I was never comfortable with it and finally decided to do something... kill it or cure it, so to speak.  So here he is reincarnated, without his bridle, his head tipped to gaze right back at us, his legs shortened and the background abstracted.  Even with this unevenly lit photograph, I am happier now :)  I just have to wait for a sunny day to get a good photo... that may take a while, so on to another project.

Here is someone's favorite princess.  She is oh so happy to show off her sweet prima donna self.  Thankfully, at least she was for me on our photo shoot.  You might be surprised how camera shy animals can be.... another advantage of being a painter, you can use several photographic images to capture just the right look and expression.
