Newest Work

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The newest in my series of white horses, I haven't come up with a title for this one yet. It was supposed to be up on eBay yesterday, but I have been having computer problems so it hasn't been listed yet. This is a pastel on Canson Paper, about 17 x 21. It will be mounted on foam core board and shipped with a 2.5 inch mat.
The white horse has long been a favorite subject of mine; lately I have been painting them in motion. The background colors, blue to pink to peach, suggest a sunset. I love the way the colors are reflected in the coat of the horse, love the strength and beauty of the animal. I wanted to convey both the strength of the animal and a tenderness and nobility of spirit.
Today I will be working on an oil painting of a white kitty looking out a window. At least I think that is what I will be doing. Sometimes I don't know what I will be working on until I get to my studio.

This white horse is so beautiful! I have developed an appreciation and respect for pastelists as I have recently been exploring pastels myself. Not easy.
