The Honey Moon


I just took a photo of this painting and realized I am not a photographer and do not have the right lens to photograph a painting this wide.  Since it is six feet wide I am somewhat hampered getting a good image until I take it to my good friend and great photographer, Jim Ginney in Placerville.  The painting might also need a tweak or two but I wanted to share my days labor with you.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing the paint go on this canvas and seeing it through what paintings do as they move through the process.  It is a wild ride but a fun one for sure.  Painting with these two wild horses has made for, "A Painting day".

Beautiful wild horses and I love the size and the peachy orange color in the background. It has a spiritual feel.

I, too, LOVE your work. And really liked your idea of painting the eyes right at the beginning. I enjoy the paintings in progress.

Great color in this one! I like the long, thin composition and it's been fun to follow the progression of the painting. Thanks for sharing the stages with us!

Ruth,thanks for visiting my blog. I admire this big painting of horses. 6 foot is hard to imagine for me, and I like the color you use.
