Oil 16" x 20"
I posted several days of steps of this painting during the past month. Once he was just about done I looked at him for several days and then fixed a few things on his body. Now he is all done and ready to be mailed off to his owner. As I said, I loved painting him. I had pictures of him all over my studio and it's been fun to hang out with him!
After my first posting with just Chief and a loose background, I got an email from an author inquiring about using him on the cover of her next, 8th, book. And while it's not going to happen (he's too western and light) I was thrilled to be asked. You just never know who sees your art, who likes your art. That's a great thing about the internet. If not for the internet I wouldn't have received this commission, received an inquiry, met the people with whom I blog. We do live in a great time!
