Do you have wall space that is begging you to fill it? Then I have a solution for you! I am pleased to announce my latest oil painting, “Sunset Rest.” It is a mere 6″ x 6.” Click here to purchase it. I will throw in a free pencil sketch as my way of saying thank you!

I plan to produce a series of sea and seashore-related paintings in this smaller format, so be sure to drop back by.

Or, better yet, sign up for my latest news on the right-hand side of this blog, and you’ll always be in-the-know.

My update of a drawing I am working on of an 1860s-era steam locomotive, 4-4-0 configuration. I began defining the cowcatcher, headlamp and funnel, blending each with a combination of a 2B pencil, a 2H pencil, and a 6B pencil. I am not really a big fan of blending stumps, although I have used them in the past. I will probably use them again when I work on my series of portraits I have planned.

New Product Announcement: A collection of horses

I never tire of drawing and painting horses.  Their beauty, passion, strength and dignity have inspired generations down through the ages. Beyond transportation and competition, horses have been, and continue to be, our companions.
-Michael Brugh

In light of my love for horses, I am very excited to announce that one of my paintings is being featured in a collection of products offered by Cal*31. Cal*31 is the Marketplace for a Free Spirited Community who Lives the Life they Love. My horse painting can be purchased on a pillow, a T-shirt, or a Tote-ally awesome tote bag! 🙂
