    HI, Ive been working with some pastels lately, these are pastel pencil, chalk, charcoal, and graphite
    on strathmore 500 archival papers.

    the first one is 3 mares that I bred, raised and ultimately sold as a family a couple years ago.
    the buyers told me they lost the baby filly last year due to a freak accident, so I did this
    portrait for her as a gift.

    A friend of mine had to put their elderly family dog to sleep a week or so ago, so I did
    this portrait of the grand old gal. She is dearly missed.

    Hopefully I will have some chicken art for you enthusiasts soon, just gotta clear
    the easel!

    thanks for looking

    Thank you, yes they were devastated, I think they were afraid to tell me
    for a long time. [​IMG] but, things happen, there is just nothing we can do
    about it some times.

    what a fantastic gift you gave her. We have an ageing yorkie and I just made a plaster cast of her foot. I dont have any artistic talent for drawing or painting, your work is nice.

    Beautiful work! I love working with pastels, however, I have been unable to do any painting for the last few years. It is too much effort with little children around. [​IMG] I really miss it.

    BEAUTIFUL job!! (all of them) The filly story is very sad, and I'm sure they loved the painting.
