This squirrel has been hanging out in the tree in our front yard. He was the perfect subject for this little painting.

Horse Profile

8"x10" acrylic on canvas board

I always enjoy painting, but there is something about painting a horse. I am fascinated by the muscles and the structure of the horse. The way the light glistens in contrast to the shadows.

Lamar Valley

24"x12" acrylic on gallery wrap canvas

I thought I would change things up a bit and paint a landscape. This painting is based off of my photo reference from a trip to Yellowstone. I really enjoyed myself and had fun painting this landscape. It was  a challenge for me.
