In the Studio

After a conversation with some friends regarding the viewing of model horses as art or a hobby, I decided to embark on an experiment. What would be created if I sculpted with no reference, and no set idea about breeds? If I could just have fun and not think too far ahead. Here's the stablemate scale horse that came from that:

He still has a long way to go before he's finished. For now, he's been set aside as I go on to the second horse in my experiment, a traditional scale heavy draft.


I decided to jump on the blog bandwagon and see what it's all about. The RoseStudiosNews list will still be used for official announcements and general updates. I thought a blog would be nice for those people who want to know what goes on behind the scenes, quick photos of work in progress, and my struggles and accomplishments with equine sculpture in general. I'm sure there will be posts about our real horses and my other hobby, trail riding, too!
