I find it really interesting how both my grandparents had horses, my grandmother spent all her time riding the train up and down the east coast following the horse racing circuit. My Dad rode horses with my grandfather and my Aunt was obviously a better rider than she ever mentioned! I really do think that horses are "in your blood".
I also have a Rottweiler portrait commission in the works which I will post shortly. Tomorrow, I am meeting with an advertising rep from a local publication here to discuss some additional print advertising I may do to stimulate more commission work. My goal is to be full time at the art again soon....just keep plugging!
