My First Commissioned Horse Portrait Painting

Horse portrait Painting commission.

Shiloh, oil on aluminum, 18″ x 12.5″


This painting of Shiro marks several firsts for me. The subject of my first blog post, the first painting completed this year, and the first painting I ever made of a horse.

The Portrait of Shiloh is finished, complete with a coat of varnish and frame. I love painting animals, and though we had five horses when I was a kid, this is my first painting of a horse. He is all ready to ship out 2,000 miles away to Ohio. I’ll miss having those sweet eyes in the studio!

Thank you, Lisa for having confidence in my abilities to capture your very special friend!
