Custom Ponies!!

Today finds me working on my first custom piece of the year!!  A wonderful collector friend in Australia has commissioned a painted pony and I think it's going to be a wonderful addition to her "herd"!!  I haven't named it yet, but there's an animal theme to it...with owls, raccoons, skunks and rabbits involved!  I should have it finished by Monday, so I'll be posting pics soon!  Hope everyone is staying warm, dry and happy this first week of January!!

Christmas News!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!!  2012 slipped upon us here at AWESOME ASS ACRES!!  We've been so busy, but if you were to ask us what we've been doing, we'd be hard pressed to say!!  The Christmas holidays kept me in the studio, painting feverishly, sometimes getting up at 4:30am and not going to bed until after 11:00pm...those hours are for folks MUCH younger than I!!  I've been blessed with collectors that enjoy my hand painted tree ornaments and I've met new pony collectors this year!!!  My last ponies of 2011 are featured below...

I am so honored to announce that "Wonderful Season of Peace" was entered in TTOPP Holiday Design contest and won 2nd place in the Classic category...just found out today!!!  Thank you all for stopping by and visiting awhile...please come back!!
