Cutting Horse Commission

Close ups

Acrylic on 9x12 hardboard.

A super nice lady in Texas, who bought "Bustin' Loose," (which was posted Aug.21) wanted a painting done of a friend riding a cutting horse. I Googled "cutting horse". They are amazing!
Any how, back to the subject of painting. She wanted it done in the same style as "Bustin' Loose".
It was work to achieve the same look and feel as "B L". I used layers of acrylic washes on the smooth surface of the hardboard. I aim to please.
She said she loves it....I'm happy!


Proverbs 2:6&8 For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 8 for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.


  1. great painting Deano. Love the colors you used. Very western looking

  2. Love it! Beautiful colors!

  3. Comme toujours Deano vous nous présentez une belle Oeuvre... Beaucoup de caractère dans cette dernière. Bon week-end.

  4. It is wonderful that you get more and more commissions! Congratulations, Dean! Your layers of thin acrylic allowed so much light to enter the composition. It is very effective!

  5. Magnificent colours Dean and well done on all the commissions! They are well deserved.

  6. I love this, Dean! Beautiful painting! -Steve
