Romantic Commission

This painting was commissioned for one of my collectors by her loving husband as an anniversary gift. The collectors are delightful people, I love the concept, and the painting process was really interesting.

The collector’s concept was to paint two draft horses, pulling together, possibly with a path behind them showing their journey.

A local couple with draft horses let me take photos of their horses, and showed me photos they had taken with the horses pulling a wagon (thank you so much!). For the painting I used a combination of source photos from them, photos I had taken of their horses, landscape photos, and looking out at the grasses around my studio. I put a lot of time and love into the painting, and I hope that shows!

I am very pleased to announce that the painting was received yesterday and they love it.

Thank you for being collectors, Ann and Randy.
