Cyclone - Acrylic Painting by Misted-Dream
Cyclone - Acrylic Painting
Yeah, just finished this piece yesterday!! :D Very happy with how this piece turned out. I'm very happy with the scan too, though as good as it is, it's still not as nice as in person. ;) I personally know this horse, as I "horse sat" him for some friends from time to time when I was in late high school/early college. Hope you all enjoy it!

Beachcomber - Scratchboard
Hi all! Here's my newest piece that has taken me FOREVER to complete! I've literally been working months on this one and I'm so glad it's done (I'm also very happy with it). I won't be doing such a large and complex scratchboard for a while. ;)

Elk Study
Okay, that's probably an odd title for me, but I wanted to share with you all this elk drawing I completed last night. This is not a normal drawing in the sense I'll be giving it away for free on Friday!! It was just something I wanted to do as a thank you to my followers and friends alike who support me--and it's a fun way to bring in 2016! The only requirement (if you want to join in on the fun) is to like and comment on that post on my art page on Facebook (link in my signature or here: ). Otherwise, I hope you guys enjoy it! :D

Rendition - Oil Painting by Misted-Dream
Rendition - Oil Painting
YAY!! This piece is FINISHED!!! :D This is a commission I did for a lady for her daughter for Christmas. I actually learned quite a bit as I was doing this one. It's amazing how much one painting can teach you sometimes. :) I'm very pleased with the outcome as well and I hope you all enjoy it. I'll be very excited to give this to the owner!

Elegant Gray - Drawing by Misted-Dream
Elegant Gray - Drawing

Hey guys! It's not often I post a couple of new pieces within days of each other. This one came together faster than I expected (I started it sometime last weekend). So here's the completed piece! I had lots of fun with this one as well, and I think it will compliment the other piece nicely.

Check it out guys! The Out West Art Show put together a video for me for the upcoming show in March. I think it turned out rather fantastic. :) Have a look-see! 

In other news, I'm just plugging away at making more art. I'm currently working on a large Friesian scratchboard as well as a commissioned horse oil painting. You can check out my Facebook art page to see all the work-in-progress photos if you're interested. (Link below.)

Thanks guys!

I am a wildlife and equine artist as well as a recent college graduate trying to make my way in the art world. My goal is to be able to make a living solely off my art--a dream I've always wanted since I started drawing at about 2 years old. The purpose of my art is to depict the beauty of nature--more specifically the sublime. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my work!
