Tandem Dancers, horse art painting by SJ Merwin

In the mail:     "Tandem Dancers", a lovely piece focusing on horses, is winging it's way across the country from Montana to Texas.  An interior decorator wants this piece for herself.  How lovely.  Turquoise can be such a great color.  I may add it to more of my work.


This painting of dancing horses is 9 X 12 inches in my mixed media style of ink and acrylic paint.  Over the years I've developed a way of using both ink and paint in a unique mixed media style.  This painting is sold.

Papillon, Dog, Art, Painting, original, SJ Merwin

This Papillon was the most challenging dog I've ever painting.  The combination of the unique colors, markings and the charming smile gave me a great artistic challenge.  Many people want a painting of their dog because their dog's coloring is totally unique.  It maybe a pure breed dog but the unique coloring of some breeds mean that the only way you'll get a painting the specific dog is with a custom painting from an artist who can capture the uniqueness of personality, coloring and markings.

This painting is sold but you can contact me if you are interested in having your unique dog painted.
