Denman & Kauto Star

I finished the painting of Denman and Kauto Star this morning and am very pleased with the result. I had used the black background to start with as both photos I was working from had them looking out from their stables so their necks blended into shadows but I absolutely love the dark background as it's made them stand out so well.

I've also received an art blog award from two wonderful artists whom I admire greatly, Laura Hardie and Lene Daugaard so am very excited to receive the award.

I have been asked to list 7 things I love and then pass on to 7 art blogs I admire. The 7 things I love are...

1 My hubby Chris, he's extremely supportive and has been great over the past few months

2 My cats Simon and Izzy. I would go slightly mad being in the house all day on my own if it wasn't for their strange behaviour that keeps me amused

3 The hot summer sun on my skin, it wakes me up and makes me feel alive

4 Home & Away and Neighbours, some call them a guilty pleasure, I openly rave about loving Australian soaps!

5 Travelling, I have a long list of places I want to visit

6 Wine

7 My friends, and yes they know I love wine before them!

The 7 blogs I will send the award to are:

Hi Sally,
Thanks so much for the mention and the award. I am honored to participate, however I recently did so so I won't tag others this time. It's great seeing your finished portrait. Very nice.

What a beautiful painting, Sally! Thanks so much for the award, very much appreciated. I only found out late from someone else, so sorry I didn't include you in my recent post, I will recify that.

Thank you everyone for the comments on my painting. I don't get enough time to work on my own paintings, although I'm desperately trying to rectify that, so this painting was very enjoyable.
