Artist Proof #1
"'Rahan' is an 'inspired' piece," Chris writes. "This past Mother's Day weekend, I picked a copy of my 'WBP Kalliel' off the shelf, intending to do a few minor changes, paint and sell him. Well, that clearly did not happen! 'Rahan' emerged from the dust with a life of his own! His 'attitude' was there even from the very roughest stage. His sweeping tail was taken from a photo of a beautiful Arab in Native Costume, altered to give more strength in the resin, by some attachment to the hip.
"Painted in acrylics, the glowing Bay was created with layer upon layer of color. The dapples and saddle color have been applied with an additional three to five layers of color. Since these photos were taken, I was compelled to add the slightest blush of pink to the
snip... very soft.
"Although he has some 'attitude' he still has a very kind, intelligent face. The sweeping tail adds to his
'Look at ME!' presence."
This resin is the first to be released in a run of "WBP Rahan Onm'i" and has been permanently identified as Artist Proof #1. He is small Classic size, about 6 1/2" tall and 7" long.
