All the little horses

April 29th, 2013 3 comments

When I was a girl, I was in love with horses. I grew up in Newark, NJ where the only horses I ever saw were the occasional police horse, or maybe an old tired freckled grey pulling a fruit cart. It didn’t matter. I dreamed and drew horses over and over again. When I went to college, I chose Boise State, in Idaho, and finally found myself in horse country. And as soon as I could, I became a horse owner. I exulted in the ability to be near these amazing creatures, and of course, I continued to draw them. There are some young girls in my family who are also growing up horse crazy. Inspired by them, I am painting horses.

Here we have a trio of horses, they look like they were startled by a thunder clap.

This painting came down fast and dirty, it reminds me a lot of Frederic Remington’s depictions of mustang herds.

Paintings are available please inquire if one of them catches your fancy. They are all 5″ x 7″ and for sale for $40.00.. All proceeds go to Wild Animal Conservation programs.

Four and twenty blackbirds

April 6th, 2013 2 comments

This painting just made itself. After putting the bike into an architectural environment, I was adding light and shadows, and thought, this needs more life. And a bird popped out of the pannier and landed on the bike. It looked so lonely there, so I painted a few more. Then a flock. and I realized, he had a pie in the pannier, and the pie was open, so they all flew out.
This time I made the bicycle an exact replica of Katrina, Donald’s bike because it is such a beautiful design.

This painting measures 11″ x 14″ and it is for sale $250.00

As with all of my paintings, the full sale price of this painting when sold goes to wildlife conservation efforts.

The eternal dance of light

April 2nd, 2013 3 comments


I have been taking yoga, it is part of my self-wellness campaign. Part of every session is a bit of meditation/relaxation.. Today as I was laying there drifting, I daydreamed this image of Donald and I as butterflies, doing a dance in golden light in a moment of eternity. We circle each other in spirals going upwards, in total joy and harmony. I know that he is with me in moments like this.
