"Horses and hands, Jimbo! If you can draw them, you can draw anything!"
I heard those words from my dad many, many times. This is the first time, though, that I've had the need to draw a horse with such detail--and in color.
Earlier this month my family had the good fortune to spend an afternoon at the stables of the Seattle Mounted Patrol. This was a surprise early birthday present for my daughter who, like most little girls, is totally in love with horses. Officer Jim took extra special care of my little kiddo --taking time out every chance he got to take her over and show her different things. He finished by allowing her to walk his horse, Dozer, into his stall. They were all wonderful but this gentleman really made her day. So, when my contact over at the SMP wrote to ask if I would draw a portrait of Dozer for a surprise gift for Officer Jim-it was an easy an enthusiastic yes from me.
I love using color pencils and don't get to do it often--mostly tending to paint these days. I hope you like Dozer -- I hope Officer Jim and the rest of the Seattle Mounted Patrol do, too. :)

One of the great models from our sessions at Artist's Edge was at the Clear Creek session in Silverdale yesterday. Chelsea will be back in late August so hopefully my school meetings won't keep me from getting there again. Our Poulsbo sessions will start up again in September.
