There is a wonderful song by Garnet
Rogers called "Small Victory", about the rescue of an old mare,
a racer past her prime, and her happy ending. The song so moved me that
I did this portrait of her last "Small Victory".
This is typical of the style of pet portrait which I am most often asked to
do for commissions. Working in layers, I create these pieces with sharpened
pastels and pastel pencils to create a full range of values from darkest darks
to lightest lights, resulting in an image of near-photographic realism.
