Another Christmas portrait, I was commissioned by Rebecca to paint a portrait of her daughter's sweet, paint pony, aptly named Fancy Nancy after the main character in the children's book series of the same name.
For this portrait, I was supplied with great reference shots of the mare at local fun shows to work with. Fittingly enough, at a recent costume show, the pony was dressed-up as Fancy Nancy from the book series complete with purple tutu and pink, star-shaped sunglasses.
It's evident from the reference shots that Fancy Nancy is an important and very much loved member of their family and has already shared many fun and treasured moments with Rebecca's daughter. This custom portrait will serve as a wonderful keepsake of a fabulous and fancy pony for years to come.
