Ornaments aren't just for Christmas

I painted this handsome fella Saturday afternoon. I love painting on such a variety of canvases...and this is one of my favorites. I love the way the acrylics work on frosted glass...or maybe it's just the contrast of the detail against the soft white.

Anyway, he's headed to Oklahoma as a gift to the owner of this gorgeous stallion. Shhhhhhhh! It's a surprise.

I think I enjoy making the gift boxes as much as painting the ornaments. I never expected I would enjoy making them so much but this last year I've really gone quite wild with covering boxes with great papers and trims.

For ordering details click here Pet Portrait Ornaments. It would be my pleasure to paint a mini portrait of your sweet horse or favorite pet.

Talk to you soon.
