...And Works In Progress
It's a hot spring in Colorado...the birds are signing, the sun is blazing, and I can now wear shorts while airbrushing. With the warmer weather has come an assortment of projects, from judging photo shows (more on that later), to creating my first traditional custom for the Model Equine Photo Showers Association (MEPSA), my to-do list is not wanting.
MEPSA Donation Horse
The Model Equine Photo Showers Association is a fun, old-fashion mail-in club with fierce competition and large shows (think of it as the photo show equivalent of the NAMHSA shows). Each year MEPSA holds an assortment of contests to help fund their championship show and, for the 2018-2019 show season, one of those contests is customizing a Breyer Lady Phase. This mold is a childhood favorite of mine and I wasn't content with a simple repaint--a major pose change and breed swap are in order for her.
Stablemates in the Works
While one of my sales horses is already up for grabs, I am plugging along with sculpting new sales horses.
Except for the Arabian filly.
Sorry everybody, but this baby is staying with me! On deck I have quite a few Arabians, a couple Frisians, a Criollo and a draft horse. If there is anything people would love to see in the future for sales horses, feel free to shout out in the comments section.
Expanding the Brand
Last year I designed a new logo, a major to-do item for Blue Mountain Stable. This year, the major brand to-do was a new website and professional email. I've also ordered stickers to accommodate each sold horse when it ships to it's new owner and I'm working on a branded table cloth set-up for shows.
