This is absolutely beautiful, really stunning work!

quick question: do you do the background or the people first? I'm considering trying a simple background with my latest horse drawing but I've almost drawn all of the horse and am worried about smudging him whilst doing the background so was just wondering which way round you did it :)

Thanks for the kind words. Typically, I do a pic from the top left down and across and end up at the bottom right, so my hand never smudges. With that said, this one I did the people first then went to the top left and did the background down and across. I just turned the paper so I wouldn't smudge.

Good luck!

ok thank you very much I think I might just pop a blank piece of paper under my hand so that it wont smudge :)

Talking

This is beautiful work. You are so blessed with amazing talent.

I am so glad I found it. I dug though this forum for the last week or so looking for you.

I shared a photo of some of the art in my new house I just bought and people went wild for it.

I told all my fans on my photography page I'd try to hunt down your info!

All three moved right along with me into my new house.




Your website is down, please tell me you have something like a fan page on FB or something that I can direct people to when they ask who did the amazing drawings on my walls.

Also, since I did just buy a new house I am trying to fill it with REAL art. So if you're taking commissions please PM me or e-mail me ASAP!

ohhrissa@gmail.com

Let me know about a place for people to see your art. I have almost 10,000 fans on my photography fan page. So that's a LOT of exposure for you and your incredible talent.

Red Cedar Farm - Thanks, Happy New Years!

Rissa - The new place looks great. Thanks for the kind words!
I took the website down and am reworking it to get something more user friendly this spring.

WessV@hotmail.com is my email. I'll see if I can setup something for Facebook in the next day or two.

Thanks again everyone and Happy New Years!
