October 29 work in progress

Dear Colored Pencils, I have missed you so much. It's been a long time since we've spent time together, and I'm glad we are finally hanging out again.

(YES!!! A drawing!!! I finally started today.)

"Drum" (American Paint Horse)
5 by 7 inches
colored pencil and graphite on tan Stonehenge paper
commission (sold)

Drum was sweet old boy who I knew for a couple of years. I used to take care of him when his owner was out of town. He was a gentleman, a horse who had an accomplished life of shows and exhibitions and trail rides. He died last winter in his mid 20s, dearly loved and dearly missed by his owner.

I will also be doing a scrimshaw pendant portrait of Drum in the near future.

ps- yes that lovely profile pic is a Halloween special.
