Ahhhh! What can possibly be cuter than baby animals! This latest ACEO oil painting is of a beautiful white mare and her new chestnut baby. Painted in oil on a very thin, 1/32" thick, gessoed oak panel. This is thin enough to fit in standard trading card top-loaders, and, is strong as any high grade paper stock with the added interest of a woodgrained back.

White horses are wonderful subjects to paint, and, I really do enjoy painting them, but....the dark side is calling! Here is a shadow boy with a lot of spirit! "Black" is an ACEO oil painting on multimedia art board in the standard trading card format of 2.5"x3.5".
and, a much larger than life image to show details!
(Those black and white speckles on the neck are lint spots from my scanner and are not on the painting!)

2.5" x 3.5" oil ACEO
This one just would not sell as it was painted originally, and, I feel it is a pretty decent ACEO, certainly good enough not to trash, so, I gave it a facelift! I reworked the shape and position of the head, lightened the (neck) background, and changed the far background color from pink to aqua. OK, now let's see how he does!

2.5" x 3.5" oil ACEO
This little painting features a herd awaiting the coming storm...and getting excited! With the wind in thier manes and tails, it won't take much more, a crack of thunder, or, a few big splats of rain, and, they will take off, bucking and snorting, and, running!

Today, I am listing two new paintings of arabian horses! The first is an 8x10 oil on thin multimedia board and is of a baby that has been all groomed and clipped for showing and presenting to buyers. He's a little apprehensive about all the excitement and attention and is calling for his mama!
The second painting is a 4x6 oil of a snow white arabian that I call, "Alabaster". This fellow is an older grey horse that over the years has lost all the color in his hair, until he is as white as fine alabaster stone!
Coming soon, I have two new paintings of herds of horses! One is an ACEO and the other a double 4x6 set of a galloping herd of horses! Keep a watch for these two to be listed soon!
