This is a commission for a friend. His only direction was a samurai duel involving his ladies dog and cat. I like equestrian scenes, so I chose to do it in that manner. When I’d finished, a rare thing occured. I knew that this was good enough that I would have to have it gicleeed and put into exhibition. With the time constraints placed on most commissions this is usually impossible. Hell, not that I don’t do perfectly acceptable commissions, but they are rarely my best work. Reasons: You have to work small because of price constraints, and the pictures provided are usually a challenge. Also because of price constraints, you can’t work as long on them. Anyway thanks to Jeff for letting me have this for an extra couple of weeks so it can go through the process.
