D’Lembrança means Of Memory in Portuguese and she’s one of the few fully prepped bodies pulled from my old body box. It’s amazing how well gesso holds up over the years!
This little gal was my first stab at a primarily pastel horse (no acrylic basecoat, just white gesso) this time around. She was supposed to end up a brighter red bay, but I know enough not to argue with a horse when it chooses another color path.

This little guy is a portrait of Jet’s Chief Keno owned by Sherry Foxworth of Rocking S Farm. He was one of the last portrait horses that I painted and the one I’m proudest of. He’s the best match so far from horse to model, although he wasn’t quite as complicated as Sierra. (more…)

Nachtlied Is German for ‘Night Song’ and this started the dark bay German silliness that followed in Nachtmaus and Nachtkatze. I know that these little guys are probably renamed as soon as they head out the door to their new owners, but coming up with names is one of my favorite parts of the process. (more…)

This little gal is something of an oddity in terms of painting techniques. Normally I paint a solid base color and then go back and add white markings, but in this case I left the primer coat alone painted ‘around’ the white markings instead. (more…)
I love tiger stripes on horses probably a little more than I should, but they look so darned nifty!
This little gal is a fantasy custom of the Breyer G2 Stablemate Paso Fino to a simple gold with a pop of tiger. I'm not sure when I painted her, my best guess right now is 2004 based on the documents I've found.

I distinctly remember painting this little gal because I didn’t have any orange horses yet. Orange was one of my least favorite colors, but as you can tell it’s grown on me a bit over the years. (more…)
