Afew years ago, An avid horsewoman commissioned me to paint her stallion, Germanicus, who is a Freesian. He is a magnificent animal,huge,black,regal and he lets you know just how special he is. He has a haughty air about him but he can also be very sweet and engaging when you have treats in your pocket. He was a challenge to paint, but I did it and when I presented the work to the owner, she said she had wanted him running, soI had to do it all over again,and this is the result. I did sell the other one too, 2 years after a man had seen it in a gallery. I am available for commissions from other horse owners.
