Current Work in Progress
A few weeks ago I got a request to paint a commission for a couple who loves everything cowboy. They gave me an idea of size they wanted (22” x 72”), the subject, and asked if it would be possible to use her personal spurs in the painting. I told them, "of course"! I love to make these commissions as personal as possible. A few days latter they emailed me images of her spur strap (no spur, just the strap) – WOW!!!! As you can see the spur strap is really WILD and FLASHY. So, I did a sketch which included her spur strap and made up my own spur. They approved the sketch and I dove into the project – spur strap and all. Actually it was a fun challenge and the best part is … they loved the finished painting.

Sketch I made to send to client before I started on the painting.
Finished painting! Aptly named Night Out.
