Looking for a really good artist ?

I have wanted to have a professional portrait done of my mare, but i cant find anyone who is a really good artist and specialises in equine art, Can any one help me?

Id also like a photoshoot of my horse if anyone knows of any good photographers around the North West area?

 

Thanks

Do you say night and love you to your horse when leaving? I do?

Re: Looking for a really good artist ?

Hi there, yeah my mum does oil paintings as a hobby, she is not professional but has painted quite a few peoples horses on here and they all seem happy with them! I havent got any photos of the ones she's done on here but if you are on facebook there are a few on my profile that you could look at under the album mobile uploads. She finished once last week that is at the top and the rest are towards the bottom of the album. I am Heather Pearce on there if you do want to add me. Alternatively you can e-mail me and I'll try and send some via e-mail for you to see. 

 

As its her hobby she doesn't really charge, we ask that you pay P&P which is about £7.50 and just send a small amount as a thank you and to go towards costs of materials if you like it.  

 

if you are interested, if you PM me on here or add me on FB and I will give you more details.

My profile picture is my head kind of resting on my arm on a beach with a white strap round my neck! I have brown hair on the photo. if you still cant find me you could try and find Sonia Devereux (I doubt there are many with the same name on there!) and try and look at her friends and find me that way? (Hope you dont mind Sonia!) If you cant find me, I'll try and find you on there.

 

Normally my mum asks for the photo you want painting plus a load other photos that will show her a bit about their character and personality, so pulling daft faces, fooling around, close ups, especially one with a good shot of the eye )according to her the eye is like a window to their personality so if you can get that right it becomes your horse rather than just a painting of a horse that looks like yours if that makes sense!
