Pencil Drawings for a Gift

Many of you have seen the wonderful art that my D2 produces. She's a very talented young lady. D3 has a special friend at her horse shows. It's a lady who is both a mom and a grandmom. She only has positive, encouraging words for my daughter. I think she's awesome! D3 wanted a special Christmas gift to give her at the group's January Awards Banquet. She commissioned (read- begged) D2 to do a graphite drawing from a photo that she took. Here's the result:





Would you like to see more of my daughter's art?

She's soon to open an Etsy shop to do custom portraits. I will let everyone know when that gets opened.

  1. These pictures are absolutely gorgeous! Your daughter has been blessed with such talent. I love her attention to detail! I went and looked at the dog portraits as well! It is not easy to capture a dog's personality, but she has! I love the one with the dogs ears sticking up! He looks like he is hoping for a treat or a morsel from the table to fall to the ground!

    Awesome!
    Love, Heather

  3. I truly love graphite drawings. My own experience has been similar. I have a talent in art that has been undeveloped (hope God doesn't treat me too harshly for that), and my preferred medium is graphite - pencil. For some reason I can't seem to master color, but I can control dark and light.

    She does beautiful work.

  10. What a great talent your daughter has. This is amazing.

    I'm so sorry that I couldn't get a clear picture of my son's horse last year when I won your give away because something technical problem with my computer and the settings that I didn't know how to fix and I missed out on her art gift. I'm glad that someone who really needed a lift got it though.

    Your daughter will do really well.

  12. I don't know how old your daughter is but (as a retired art teacher) she sure has a great sense of composition and technique. Has she ever had note cards printed from her work?

  17. Wow! My daughter loved to draw horses for the longest time. She thinks they are the hardest things in te world to draw; and after watching her struggle to master them for months, I have to agree. Your daughter is so very talented!
