Ok ok, I admit it! Call me crazy, narcissistic, shallow, I don't care. All I know is ... I WANT AN EQUESTRIAN FANTASY PORTRAIT!
We at SHADBELLY have been obsessed with Equestrian Fantasy Portraiture ever since we spotted this one of Natasha, a Florida dressage rider with her gorgeous Lusitano. Pretty cool, huh? Natasha's portrait was painted by artist Martha J. Dodd, also an avid dressage rider and yes, Martha is available for commissions, just email her at email@example.com.
Now we're just trying to decide if we want be immortalized in the Baroque style of Johann Georg Hamilton ... or should we go surreal and look to Salvador Dali's "Equestrian Fantasy - Portrait of Lady Dunn" for inspiration?
Have/would you commission a portrait with your horse? If so, what's YOUR fantasy*?
