Here's a picture of the Stormwatch that I recently finished. I'm really happy with the way he turned out. I'm glad I just gave him the sock and the star. I think it makes him look more realistic. I just loved painting him! Thanks to Sarah M-B for sculpting him, I can't thank the sculpting artists enough. If I had to sculpt/customize AND paint, you would probably see something from me every eight years lol!

At any rate, he will be on eBay starting the evening of Dec. 27th (3-day auction). Here is a link to the auction (won't be live until 7:00PM Pacific time), and here's a link to my website with more pictures of him. I hope you all like him! His reserve is very reasonable for this sculpture and color.

 I might not post anything more until after the new year, if so have a great New Year's Eve and I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year, filled with art and horses!

Some New Stuff

Here's a Rose Reiner that I don't think I've shown to you yet. He's almost done, I need to do some more details and some touchups though so he won't be ready until some time after Christmas.
Here's my first attempt at a champagne color on one of Sarah Mink's medallions. 

And on to a couple other progress pieces:
Hazel has another layer of oils. I'm trying out a different painting medium with this one, it dries slightly slower than the other mediums that I've been using, but the "open" time is longer so I'm able to paint a slightly thicker layer and blend more. I usually paint so thinly and transparently that it takes ages and ages to build up color, so we'll see how this new technique goes.
Stormwatch is close to final detailing now. You can click on the photo for a much larger shot. I still think he'd look good with a sock, debating on whether to do it or not. He has a very small star.

And that's it for now! I hope everyone is having a great holiday season and has a great time as the new year approaches.
