Carrigan and Missy by sVa-BinaryStar
Carrigan and Missy
A commission done for a local businessman as a Christmas gift for his wife. :D  Brownie points for him on Christmas day!  If I had a husband and he bought me art it would be an instant win for me!   The far horse is the mother to the front horse and both horses are owned by a Mother and daughter. So sweet!  I always love the story behind what portrait drawings mean to their owners.  They might just look like a random horse portrait but they are usually so much more.  I feel so privileged to know somewhat of the story behind the lives of each of the horses and the people that love them. 

Not too late to get Christmas gifts from me!  I have gift cards available for pre purchase you could get for the horse lover in your life.  I won't be able to complete the drawing in time for Christmas but with a gift certificate they can contact me whenever they are ready and we can begin their timeless portrait.

Frog by sVa-BinaryStar
Another portrait gift for a friend!  This little guy was close to 30 years old before he passed and was another horse I knew a long time ago.  I can't believe I could even find his picture on my computer still.  Done for his owner for Christmas.  

There's still plenty of time to get an order in if you would like a portrait drawn!  Just send me a note or email me at

JayJay by sVa-BinaryStar
Sadly JayJay Jet Plane, the miniature in this drawing, suffered from a freak accident and had to be put down this passed week.  This drawing was a gift for the little girl who owned him and was given to her on her birthday.  A few days later, during her birthday party Jay was kicked in the leg breaking it through all the way.  The party was rushed inside while the vet was outside putting him down.  Such a freak chance of events and I'm just so glad we have pictures of him and now a portrait done of him, even though the little girl keeps it facing the wall right now because she can't bare to look at him.  This is why it's so important to have good pictures of our pets before they go, and even more special to have artwork done of them.  Keeps them with us a little longer.  

Commission work for a local friend.  This is her Miniature horse who has suffered from nerve damage in the face and is a rescue.  She's taken him in and teaching him to drive at the show level. He's super sweet and only 4 years old. So glad for people like that who take in unwanted animals and give them a second chance!  

By the way, if anyone else is interested in a portrait commission such as this, I am open!  Just send me a note, email me at or message me on my facebook page at Abigail Baines-Equine Artist.  Thanks guys!  Enjoy!

Holly by sVa-BinaryStar
This one has been in the works for a while, mostly because I've been super busy lately.  Also I decided to refinish my art desk in the middle of it so I put it to the side to finish the table as soon as possible.  Anyway, she's a sweet horse, another picture done for a friend of mine.  

Christmas is coming and I'm still wide open for commissions of any kind!!  Just send me a note, I still check dA frequently.  Or find me on    Stop in and say hi!  
Star Portrait by sVa-BinaryStar
Star Portrait
Portrait drawing of a friends horse.  I've been friends with this horse for around 9 years now, helped in some of his training and now 'horse sit' him when his owners go out of town.  He's no longer ridable after getting really sick a few years ago but he's a great pasture puppy.    

Still open for commissions!! 
Open for Commissions!  Real USD only via paypal.   

Just Send a note with what you are wanting and I will give you a quote.  I like to average $15 and hour - should give you an idea to the price I will quote.       

Books are open and picture guaranteed to be complete within 3-4 weeks!  

Follow my WIPS, watch video clips, keep updated about commission openings!!  And just general horse art chat!  This site will be for my traditional works and getting to know you guys more on a personal level, I love talking to people, so if you like my page and if you ever leave comments, I'll respond!  Of course I do here as well-but over there, who knows, I might just have to friend you too! :D

Do you still own this horse? Zip Along
sVa-BinaryStar Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014
I do, though her ref is in storage in my gallery I believe. She's retired.

oh, okay, only asking because I was looking to buy her possibly (I have a bunch of appy geldings and stallions but only a couple mares)

Hello there!
You probably don't remember me, I got a breeding with Jammytime years ago with my stallion Anarchy?

Hey there! I just created a new horse breed a few days ago, and seeing that you are very involved in horse-related things I was wondering if you would like to take a look at the group and see if you wanted a horse? This breed doesn't require that you do art of your horse constantly or anything, it's just so that you can be creative and come up with a unique horse :)
Sorry if this is a bother, I just can't think of any other way to get it out there, as I don't have many watchers.
