Further Adventures of the Artist

Imagine yourself out for lunch with a friend. You look over their shoulder and find one of your own works looking back at you. Recently this is just what happened.

 

Lady Di of Carp was the 3 year old Clydesdale Mare Champion at The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in 1989. Her owner Stan Carruthers of Ottawa decided to have her win recorded with an original portrait. The portrait, in pen & ink + pencil crayon was only half the task. Next a smaller 8” x 10” black & white Ink version was needed styled for letterhead, business cards with a numbered edition of 25. This special image went to his associates in the Clydesdale world.
