It was my absolute pleasure to paint this next portrait commission. Affectionately called Tate or Tato, this gorgeous love bug was a delight to paint. After a slew of dog portraits, it was refreshing to get back to painting a different four-legged animal and one of my favourites.
Having had the pleasure of booping this boy's nose in person, this portrait was all the more enjoyable to bring to life and capture Tate's true essence.
A classic pose taken from a photo of a past horse show was selected. Tate's shiny, freshly groomed coat coupled with his perfect braids only add to the overall look of this lovely Children's Hunter.
Showing under the name Cool Disguise, be sure to look for this pair in the A-Circuit ring this year, where they will surely be cleaning up in the ribbon department.
Thrilled with the results of this portrait, I can't wait to present Scarlett with this finished painting of her special boy.
