Rocking horse

My friend Ed does amazing hand-carved rocking horses of various sizes. I've designed a line of complementary wall pieces featuring his work. This is one of several I have done to date. Ed, his rocking horses, and some of my images are currently at the Calgary Art Market. We both have booths of our own at the Sundog show in Saskatoon the first weekend of December.

I do quite a bit of dog photography for clients, but don't often get around to using them in my artwork. I've been creating rusty paper for other art uses, and was happy with how this whippet blended in to the paper.

Dark Angels

This image is a special one for me for several reasons. First and most basic is that it features my gelding Alpac and my beloved crows. Secondly, this was a milestone image for applying my  Photoshop skills, as it was the first photomontage I was finally able to do after much time and effort trying to learn the basics. I credit the Mural Mosaic Cadeau du Cheval project for giving me the impetus to do this piece, as it is part of the massive horse mural. You can see the  mural here  . My image can be seen in the bottom row, 6th from the left. This image was created in 2008. I've come a long way since then, but this one will always hold a place in my heart.
