A Tribute to Gracie
This lovely oil portrait was recently created for Kristen Burgers of Virginia.  She lost her lovely Beagle, Gracie, last year and asked me to do a portrait that would allow her to keep her memory.  This 12x16" oil on canvas was just completed and she was very pleased with the likeness.
If you would like to immortalize your sweet canine or equine friend,  please contact me at rider853@aol.com to discuss details

COMMENTS FROM DOWN UNDER - "DANIKA & YATIMAH ~ FROM EGYPT TO THE OUTBACK" - Illustrations by Willa Frayser, Written by Carmel Rowley

The following is an unsolicited comment from a reader in Australia who emailed these wonderful comments:

Dear Willa,
Hi!  I have been a big fan of Carmel's books and have just purchased her latest, the children's book, Danika and Yatimah from Egypt to the Outback for my children (and me!).  I just wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed your illustrations for the book.  They are absolutely delightful and perfectly set off the story.
I have just had a quick browse through your website and your artwork is just wonderful!  You are a very talented artist, I just love your work.  Your Arabian horse portraits are just outstanding - congratulations, and thank you for sharing them with us all.
Kindest regards,
Kathi McDonald.

Thank you Kathi!  It is wonderful to have my work enjoyed by so many, and in so many places!

This newly reworked and hand painted resin sculpture by Willa Frayser, has just been completed.  The profile was reworked to give the face a more "dished" look of the Arabian horse, as well as the muzzle area more sloped so the nostrils were more extended.  Also created more of a "mitbah" or throatlatch.   The details were all hand painted using oil paints.

This lovely sculpture is being offered for purchase - contact the Artist for more information!
