Horse painting update

So.....I have to admit that I was using the excuse of having the flu to keep me from finishing this painting.  Maybe because if I don't finish it, then I never have to dislike the way it turns out?  Tisk Tisk, Erica!  The painting has since changed and I have to say, I do like it.  I will update later.

Pencil Portrait from a photo

Alright, here is a portrait in pencil that I have been working on.  I am shying away from finishing the face because....I am overly critical of my art and it is hard to get a likeness!  Maybe I should have a glass of wine before I draw or something to calm my nerves...?  Then again knowing me I would spill it on the paper.

House painting

Wow it's been awhile since I have written.  My latest finished commission has been a house painting for my friend Joanna.  I do have to admit that painting pictures that are mostly about inanimate objects are a lot easier.  Here is the painting in the beginning stages.  Of course I always forget to take a picture after it's done.
