Rest&peace



Got this little chap as finished as I can for the moment.
Got to start tomorrow on my xmas commissions.
Glad I managed to get a decent portrait of him, still not happy with the mane...nodoubt will be working at it again soon (Have not sprayed it yet!). He is such a cutie. Named the piece "rest & peace" : strong link with the history of the pony being saved from the butchers as well as the sense of peace and quiet around him, no other title would do. If I find a little time maybe I'll manage to get his friend drawn as well.
Prints are coming along well. Getting the whole thing organised and putting the finishing touches on the web page.

First word...First line, feels good!
Been wanting to do this for a while now, here goes...
May sound irrelevant but the quote I read the other day from Pablo Picasso is just constantly at the front of my mind. "I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it"
and that is definately the name of the game at the moment.

Had a busy day, drew in the morning while Amelie had her snooze. Working on a Shetland pony (a little something for myself - keeping track of its progress, see how that works out: never been so vigilant!)
Went to the printers this afternoon...Lancer and Toni are now available as LP...cool! The others are pretty nearly done. All that is left for me to do is get the webpage organised and the promotion.
Three orders in for xmas..going to be another busy one!
