This was a surprise present for my friend, Deb, commissioned by her daughter.
Deb has had many pets and has a real affinity with animals. She no longer has Rex and Possum, but still has her horse ‘Shalamar’ (sp?) or Shell for short. Shell is a big strong willful mare and has many times been up on the veranda snooping around. This would be exactly what Deb would see if she stepped out the back door.
Derwent Artists colour pencils, white gouache and black ink on mat board. 30 × 44cm. 2009 commission.
Has been featured in ‘Cats and Dogs’ group.
