I don’t know what it is about horses picking their own colors– but this little guy pulled the same trick Rhymer did and refused the chrome I had planned. I think he would have made a cute little tovero, but he had much simpler ideas! Continue reading →

This little gal would have been done back in February if I hadn’t managed to knock her off the back of the lightbox table and into hiding… *sighs* Continue reading →

The meeting is dragging on, people are trapped in a loop rehashing old topics and you… you’re stuck doodling in the margins. Or playing Angry Birds—but I think they’d sue me if I started slapping beaks on the horses. Continue reading →
Make: Breyer Scale: Stablemate Mold: Cantering Foal (G2) Color: Turquoise/Teal and White Gallery: Other Color Medium: Acrylics Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?
This little guy started with a solid light teal base and was stenciled with a darker shade of teal (turquoise?) and white. He was finished off with solid black eyes, mane, tail, and hooves. He’s a glossy, which accounts for some of the bad lens flare, and much cuter in person. Continue reading →

This little gal was a custom order painted to match a color chip/card submitted buy the buyer. I think I still have the card somewhere and I’ll come back and update this when I find it.

I’m really not sure how to explain this guy. … Is it possible to use ‘you had to be there’ in regards to customizing?
My friend Jess painted his basecoat, but decided she didn’t like the color combination. I meant to strip him… really I did. But I was watching Survivor, and that got me thinking about the real Outback, which led to thoughts concerning the nifty paintings they have hanging in the restaurants. … And when I looked up from my meandering thoughts, this guy was done!
