Horsin' Around

Hope you're all having a fantastic summer! These months are flying by here! I'm going to be trying to get new original art up for sale on my Etsy site each week (or so). This first gal was such a success that she sold immediately after posting her to my FB page. I had a lot of folks enquire about prints, so I've made them available here

 Also out and about are the Truck Buddies series of board books I did the cover art for! They came out super cute in my opinion! 

Kept busy with my painted pony project, which I finally finished! Here are some progress photos for those wondering what goes into bringing a carousel horse back to life :)
 now for bondo!


He came out purty! The boys LOVE him, and love just sitting on him (even though he doesn't go anywhere). Ordering new leathers, and a new turned brass pole for him, and he'll look sharp!
