Vegas

Vegas 16x20" SOLD

Vegas is a horse portrait I completed last month, for one of my clients who also had portraits painted of her chihuahua (Olive) and cat (Silver). I love painting horses, although I haven't had as many commissions of them as I have for dogs. When I was younger, I was completely horse-mad. I drew them non-stop, read about them all the time, and even ran around on all fours pretending I was one (... in my defense, that last one was only for a short while!). If I had a choice to be any animal, it would either be a horse or an eagle (I would also love to fly!). What would you choose?

You sound like me, except I ended up with 6+ horses! I also love to draw and paint them. Such beautiful noble creatures God created.
