Charlie-Work In Progress
Commissioned paintings are a true honor to paint. They are also a challenge that makes me look at the particular animal being painted. If it is a horse named, Charlie, like the one in this painting, it has to look like Charlie. It is a fabulous challenge. I have more to do to make Charlie come alive on the canvas but the painting is nearing completion. I just sent the photo to Charlie's owner so we will see what she thinks of the portrait of her very special horse friend. Painting Charlie made for "A Painting Day".
