Portraits of trust and love.

I would like to do a series of paintings showing the sweet love and trust that a human can have with a horse. I am looking for exceptionally endearing photos of humans with their horses. Children too. I prefer close up head shots but can do full body shots. This is not a contest. If you like my work you can talk to me about purchase, but mostly what I want is for anyone who submits a photo for a portrait, that I have their permission to paint them, and to reproduce it for sale , if the work is of the appropriate quality.

Here is one of Endiku with one of her ponies. I think this would make a lovely portrait

And this one of Katie with her now gone Hugo is another example of the kind of love and trust I want to try and capture

So, if you have one that you think is what I am looking for, go ahead and submit. I have some that I have already chosen and will contact the persons for permission if they end up being painted.

Wow, this is a great idea Tiny.I think both the HF's pictures you showed above are stunning and also, great examples of passion and bond. I only have on picture like that. That is of me and my hearthorse (Owned by the horse stud I have worked for, for a while - don't worry I do have permission for pictures !

I uploaded the first picture as a black and white, because I love the bond it helps portray! I also added the full colour version for you. Good luck, and thanks for letting me give you these pictures! Oh! And one more picture I love is on the bottom .

What a great idea Caroline! I look forward to seeing your work (like always).

Here's a cute one of my best friend's daughter with a mare we have since sold. Haley (horse) was fascinated with little ones. Sweetheart of a mare that was a loner until kids came in the pasture and she was always the first one to come visit.

Just checked in. All great stuff! I won't be able to paint all, but can probably do at least a pencil sketch. Keep 'em coming!

Here are a couple of me and my OTTB Mr. O'Malley that I sadly had to give to a friend of mine because I couldn't afford to keep him.
