I was recently commissioned to paint beautiful Surge for Samantha from Chetwynd, British Columbia.
Always fun to switch it up between hunters, jumpers, dressage horses and barrel racers, I enjoyed adding another Quarter horse to my lineup of painted ponies.
"Oh my goodness! I love it!!! You are amazingly talented!" – Samantha N.
For this portrait, Samantha picked out a selection of her favourite photos of her gelding. Preferring the ones where they were racing, we decided on a photo of Surge, mane in the wind, nostrils flared and ears back in full-on gallop.
A keepsake she’ll be able to display and enjoy for years to come, it was my pleasure to paint Samantha’s special boy.
