Equine Western Art Horses Arabian Horse by Della Burgus

Strength and Gentleness
Arabian Horse
Horse shows are always exciting. There is something about seeing one of these gorgeous animals, groomed and polished, strolling around an arena that takes my breath away. To me they are like great sculptures created by the Master  -  not just clay or wood, but living, breathing works of art.  I can only stare in wonder and awe.  This Arabian was one of my favorites in the Society Horse Show at the state fair this summer.  His grace and dignity made him stand out in the crowd, and that was no ordinary crowd.

This is a pastel on Sennelier Pastel Card. It will be listed on Art Helping Animals, the Chisholm Trail and Daily Painters this week. 10% of the sale will be donated to True Blue Animal Rescue and 10% to Children's Cup International Relief.

Hope you have a good day. And find some of the Master's artwork to appreciate this week.

This is a beautiful horse.
Said told us that when she was driving to Trader Joes this morning she saw 4 horses in the last and only pasture in our busy area. They looked quite happy to be out in the rainy humid weather. Everyone likes to look at them!

bonks for a happy day

Beaucoup de charme dans votre réalisation... On sent un cheval racé et très équilibré. L'amour du cheval est très présent dans votre peinture, bravo!
