Summer's end....

I don't know where the time has gone this year.  What a busy and fun summer!  We're prepping to do some more traveling out west and I can't wait!  I've got a very large painting of the Rocky Mountains in the works, but no photos yet.  Here's a few updates on a couple of paintings I've been working on.  The first is a work in progress of one of our horses that is no longer with us.  I don't have many photos of him and the one I have is not very good.  I'm enjoying the painting though.  I've also included an update of the Hollyhock painting as well.  I'm farther along now and need to take an updated photo. 

I've got a lot more work to do on him, but he's blocked in.  My camera did some adjusting after I darkened the background.  Also, below is another shot of the Hollyhock.  I've been doing more work on the leaves and I've made a few changes.  I'll try to post them next time. 

For the below painting...or other little paintings I have up for auction on ebay this week, just click the link at the above right. 


  1. What a wonderful tribute to your horse. It's looking really good so far.
    I was reading a previous post and am wondering if you usually stretch your own canvases. I can't wait to see the hollyhock finished. I love the drama of those flowers.

  2. Hi Kim! Love this painting series! 3 in one post is a treat to look at! Thanks for your comments on my blog

  3. Nancy, for large paintings like this one, I do stretch my own canvases. And thank you both for your kind comments!!!
