She always has carrots

shehascarrotsSometimes I see something that I want to paint backwards. I really liked all the shadows in a photo I saw, and thought, I will just paint those shadows and see what happens. And while I was at it, I also used some kind of crazy colors, just to see what would happen. After a bit of feverish painting, these horses appeared. They are excited because someone has come to visit them bearing treats. These horses can be yours for the sum of $175.00. The painting measures 11 x 14″ and is on Fine Arches watercolor paper. All proceeds go directly to wild life conservancy.

My best friend

Growing up, many little girls fall in love with horses. A few lucky ones actually get to be around horses and even fewer to have horses of their own. Acting out my own dream, I moved to Idaho when I was 18 years old, and by the time I was 21, I owned my own horse. I learned to ride them, care for and train them, and finally, I even had the opportunity to live with my own horse just outside my door when I lived in Eagle.

The little girl in the painting grew up with horses, and sits astride her faithful steed, who was probably mature before she was born. I dedicate this painting to someone I know that actually did grow up this way, and throughout her life, she has displayed the horse sense she probably was taught by horses; Mari Whitmer.
