The Arrangement of orange roses with casts

I thought this was funny, it looks like the vase has a hand and it is trying to grab some chips and dip or something.

the casts

Here are a few of the cast that we get to draw as 1st year students.

hearts Arabian Paint Oil

Oil on Canvas


This is the first equestrian portrait that I painted after learning to paint in oils.  I now paint tons of horses in oil.  This portrait of Hearts (a half Arabian paint Saddelbred) is life-size.

Painting portraits of horses is my favorite thing to do.  My most popular size is the life-size head & shoulder portrait.
