I was asked to do a portrait of my friend’s daughter and their two cats, one of whom, was nicknamed “baby horse” because he was so huge! Well, Wally died of old age shortly after I took photos of him for this painting, so I’m glad we got the ball rolling in-time to have this done. I decided to give him a fancy saddle, and placed him where he seemed to enjoy himself, outside in the garden. I wanted to go for a princess and her beasts vibe in this, which I hope I did!
This measures 11×14″ inches and is oil on panel.
This is one of those pieces that has been really difficult to photograph because of the small size and detail; I think I got the colors as close as I ever will to seeing it in person. Might be time for me to step it up and get a large format scanner.

Went on another trip to my second home of New Orleans. A birthday, a wedding, and meeting-up with friends from around the country. So much happened, it is almost silly to blog about it while life gets back into the usual swing here in Cleveland. Although summer wasn’t as bad as I had imagined (and I packed my trusty parasol while sipping cold drinks), I can safely say I’d rather stick to spring, summer, and winter for future visits.
