Something new at long last!

It's been a while since I've had any new work to show but I hope the wait will prove to be worth it ;-)
I have been busy with home responsibilities (poorly relative) and not had much time to paint however I had an opportunity to photograph a beautiful foal for a commissioned portrait, this is "Gloria" painted in pastel on pastelmat approx A3


My extra photographs inspired me to paint a personal piece called "Security" which I have since submitted to the Society of Equestrian Artists open exhibition, this is a first for me and the start of a more pro active attempt to get my work "out there" and seen, so I need a good dollop of luck to get through the selection process!

They are both excellent Kay but I particularly love 'Security' as the composition works so well.

Gloria certainly has an impressive beard :o)

Thank you Sue!
LOL yes Gloria has a very cute whiskery chin apparently young foals often do? hopefully she will lose it as she matures.........it mightn't look so cute full size ;-0
