For not the first time, but maybe the last time, I have started a "home business". The difference with this one is that it is one I really enjoy. I've drawn and painted horses since I was (at least) five years old--that's the earliest one that my mother saved.
By the time I entered my teens, Mother had grown a bit tired of the subject and urged me to do something else with my artwork besides horses. I followed her advice and never looked back until ten years ago when it occurred to me that people might actually pay for horse portraits. I have had many exhibits of my landscapes, and sold a good number of them--but not enough to provide any kind of steady income.
I'm hoping that if I work hard and market this business well I will be able to delight my customers, make some money, and have a lot of fun doing it.

One down, one to go
Well, here we go! The watercolor is a softer look, which is as it should be if you are not, as I am not, a hyper-realistic painter. But I’m satisfied that I captured the spirit of the photo, since the … Continue reading
Yes, really, it’s done!
All done. Had to wait for the right moment to photograph it outdoors in my favorite lighting conditions–bright shade. The gloss in the medium I use creates all kinds of shiny bright spots in the photography if I use lights … Continue reading
