Erin Galasterer, USA, contacted Nichoals in 2012 enquiring about his full body horse portraits as she was looking to get one painted of her stunning horse Lockheart.
Erin had specific requirements about the painting, she wanted a large size so opted for a 36 x 28 inches size canvas. She also asked if Nicholas would be able to paint Lockheart in a full body pose with a studio style background. Erin had a good idea of how she wanted the portrait and emailed us a few old paintings of horses to show us what she had in mind. Erin had some professional photos taken which she emailed over for Nicholas to work from, her favoruite for the main pose was perfect to work from.
Nicholas a number of hours, days and weeks to complete and I took a photo of Nicholas with the painting to show scale which you can see below. It took Erin was thrilled with the portrait, as you can see from the emails below.
Wow Melanie...that looks great! I can't wait to see it in person. Please let Nick know how extremely pleased I am with this. If you think that it would be easier to frame here that is fine. There are a couple places here to do it. Thanks,
We received the painting early this week. It is beautiful! I will get you a picture once it is framed and up! Thanks again,
