During the Easter studio tour I sold a piece that had not been completed, so I just finished it last week. A steel piece in a concrete base on a wooden stand. This is how it looks now. The buyer is coming to pick it up later so I may set it up outside, but the piece is heavy (at least 60 kg) so I may need some help.
Today I made really good progress! But my most honest and helpful critic and muse (my dear wife) thought it was boring to show yet another photo of the painting I am working on… so I won’t post a photo of the result of today’s work!
I also had a fantastic day with Rambo! He was grumpy to start with, put his ears back when I was grooming him, which is unusual, but I worked him in the round pen, rode him with success and later worked him in the large arena for the first time. After not too long he made a surprisingly good stop, almost like a reining horse! Big grins on both may face and my excellent trainer Terry Berg! So he got to go back, take a shower and relax for the rest of the day! Good boy!
This painting is now hanging on a wall in our house. It has a frame… but I am not sure I am done yet. I keep going by to look and I see small things here and there that may need to be adjusted.
And today I started on a new painting. I am going to build it up and this is the (very humble) beginning. It will be interesting to build this with layer upon layer.
