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

May 27th, 2013 No comments


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.

Painting is for sale $175.00 it’s an 11 x 15″ watercolor on fine watercolor paper. All proceeds of sales go to wild animal conservation.
