Three New Customs

It's quite disturbing that one of these was meant to be completed for Crimson Coral live back in February!

As some of you know I've been very ill over the last month and am ridiculously behind on literally everything, so getting some customs finished off is actually quite a big deal right now!

First off is 'Cannonball' a G3 Arabian to bay

If you would like to give him a forever home you can do so here: http://www.chestnutridge.co.uk/cannonball-40997-p.asp

Second up is 'Can't Be Tamed' a lovely Maggie Bennett Pewter to chestnut

It says a lot about my attitude to painting that I find this pewter quite large...

And finally 'Can't Beat The Feeling' a Teeny Tiny Night Heather also painted to bay

Now to try and get all these commissions finished...


I think I'm in love! This year's BF special run decorator is just gorgeous! The colour works so well, she almost looks like caramel.




The second release in the Stablemate Collector's Club has been announced.

I'm not too sure about the colour on this one, be interesting to see him in the flesh
