Sunny Bay finished

I finished this piece Friday and entitled it "Sunny Bay". It is 16x20 in colored pencil. I took it and two other pieces, "Lean on Me" and "Land of the Free I, to an intake for a local juried exhibition on Saturday.

Also, on Saturday, I met with an individual who had picked up my card from one of the post offices where I had placed cards in conjunction with the release of Ellen DeGeneres helping shelter animals stamp release. He has ordered 7 (!) 9x12 pet portraits. He would like the first one before July 4th. I could use an order this size every month! I am supposed to call him Wednesday about the progress of the first one. Luckily, the first one has the best photo references. A couple of the others do not have the best references and will be quite difficult, I fear. I hope he is pleased with them all. Will ask him for permission to post WIP/finished pieces here when I speak with him on Wednesday. For now, I better get busy!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. The sort of client we all dream of :o) well done Angela.

    I love this foal, very delicate and wistful looking

  2. Really nicely done. I love the sheen on his coat. And congrats on the portraits! Hoping we get to see the work in progress shots. That's always the fun bits. :)

  3. Wow, I love to see how the colours build up and transform the piece. It's beautiful.

    Congratulations on the new client too! :)

  4. Thanks so much Mona and Linda! Of the three pieces I took to the local exhibit, this is the only one that got accepted. I thought the eagle would be accepted before the others. Of course, usually (not always)I like the last piece I did the best.
