Beauty: No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture
Zoom Pictures

I have just finished another picture and I certainly enjoyed this one. Growing up we had many horses and I have always loved them. When working on a piece I tend to suffer from tunnel vision, focusing only on the piece and concentrating very little on the frame work. I stand back and look at these pieces now and see that something else needs to be done to fully put out a nice piece of art. I still enjoyed making them and I continue to learn every time I sit in front of my design desk. Thank you all for the words of encouragement and I hope you enjoy my horse “Beauty”.

Very nice work. Your wood selections and orientations are superb. Just a gorgeous job.
