Day 11…

   Day 11 of my 30 day challenge. There is that swishy tail I love! For those that don’t know, those swishy tails are one of the reasons I fell in love with saddlebreds. I attended a saddlebred show one year with the intentions of photographing the Friesian classes. I went for the friesians, but…

Struggles of an artist 

  The struggle here is real! Artist issue: eraser marks  I am not sure if you can see them or not, but there are eraser marks and “old” marks all over this canvas!  For those that don’t know, I sketch out each piece directly onto the canvas. Somedays I wish I had a projector….though I…
