This little guy looks like he’s about to be up to no good! He just has that naughty expression. I bet he’s a handful for his mamma!
This gypsy cob foal is so fascinating to me. As an artist, the eyes are the most intriguing feature on people as well as animals. I can’t wait to get to that part of the painting. Sometimes, I will “do” the eyes first; then it seems it’s calling out to me, begging to be completed and made whole.
My husband and I traveled to Washington D. C. and Virginia. We stopped in Williamsburg and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the colonial era. I shot this photo and placed it in an album saying, “I’ll have to paint him someday.”
Well, “someday” turned into many days! This one has well over 100 painting hours invested in it. Even so, it truly was a labor of love.
I love “The Cobbler” for all its warmth and nostalgia. I suppose it holds some sentiment as well, because when my grandfather came to America from Italy, his trade was a cobbler.
