Currently on my Easel...

("Duchess," 8"x 10", oil on canvas,
nfs, private commission)

Well, contrary to my belief I suppose I CAN paint horses! This is only the 2nd horse I've ever attempted to paint, but I have to say I am really thrilled with how it's coming together! Stay tuned for the grand finale!...The 'Duchess' is complete, and I am also really happy with the end result on this piece. I think the ornate chair really fits this little lady, don't you agree? :)
(*Update, I finished the horse painting, and replaced the image above so you can see how it turned out...fingers crossed that the owner is happy too!:)


  1. Your horse is stupendous! What a great job you did and to think you weren't sure about the outcome! WOW!!! The little red cushion certainly does fit the background for the little pup. Every Duchess should be seated so!

  2. Hi Lara~

    What LOVELY paintings! The little "Duchess" is quite REGAL in her chair, her owner must be SOOO PROUD of her! Ooooh MY GOSH...your horse is quite stunning, I just can't believe you had second doubts on your ability to paint horses. AMAZING!!!

  3. Lara you have the most beautiful work. Yes, your talent truly is a gift.

    I almost freaked out when I saw 90 days till Christmas (yikes).

    Thank you so much for sharing your memory of your grandfather and the little child who saw him enter heaven.

    Love Renee xoxo
