A Short Diversion

Sorry for the radio silence on this end lately! I've been working on finishing up the Johann and Oliver commissions, and unfortunately when it gets to this point there's not really any use in showing them until they're done. Glazes, spot-checks and final detailing just don't seem to show through on the photos, yet it takes a long time to get those final details right. 

My time in the model horse studio will be very limited for the next couple of weeks, too, because I'm trying to finish up a large "flat" painting for a show deadline. So I am limiting myself to the commissions and a small sales piece until the flat painting is done. Then I'll be back in business!

In the meantime I thought I'd share a few sketches I made the other day of a raccoon that wandered into the yard. It spent a long time grooming itself.
