A customer wanted me to do an aceo card for him to be delivered at AC. He told me to draw what ever I wanted. My response? "You're going to get a horse then." Cool with him. So I started one sketch then another. I've done two and will give him the pic of whichever he prefers and he can buy the other if he wants it. Otherwise I'll put it up for general sale. Boy these were fun. Generally I like to paint large but sometimes tiny is fun too. Each image is 2.5 x3.5.

One of the real cool things to do with commissions is doing a painting that has real meaning to someone. This is a gift commission and is for a young lady to remember her beloved dogs both current and past. The winged husky is a much loved and passed on companion. the Sarloos wolf hound is her current dog. The title Spiral Dance alludes to the face that we are dancing in this thing called life together. Some spirits are with us only for a while. We touch briefly and move on. Hug your pets today folks.
