Kayla's Mare

5 x 7 inches oil on canvas  click here to bid     sold   

 I generally paint the horses that I have easy
access to. This paint horse shows up in several
 of my paintings sometimes in the back ground or like this
 one she's the main subject. I'm hoping Kayla doesn't mind.

I painted this one a few weeks ago. The lighter
colors  usually take longer to dry but it is ready to go.
 Hope everyone likes it.

                              I always revert to painting bays when the day
                              isn't going so well. They always come out great!

In the Arena

click here to bid

 9 x 12 inches oil on canvas. I went to a kids horse show called the Youth Rodeo. Took some action photos and did some paintings. This is one of them.They had horses and kids of every size and color, they even had some adults competing.  I had fun watching them. This buckskin was running the barrels well maybe just walking them.

At the Rodeo

click here to bid  8 x 10 inches oil on canvas board  Sold

This painting is canvas but on a hard board. The paint slides on and is really fun to  manipulate. I tried a little looser  technique in the background and tighter in the foreground.
I like to try different surfaces, to give me a challenge and change it up a little.

Three's Company

6 x 8 inches oil on canvas   click here to bid   Sold

Sorrel Bay Gray. I placed the bay  so he could frame the gray. He really
makes the gray horse stand out. The flaxen mane on the sorrel makes the bay
 stand out. Worked out pretty good I think.

She stays close

click here to bid   6 x 6 inches oil on canvas     Sold
''She stays close'' to her mother. Rainy was a sheltered foal. She did not have other
playmates until she was weaned. It was a tough transition period for her. This time I remembered to take pictures at my table while I was painting her to kind of  let you see the
progression of my painting process. The sides are also painted so you won't have to frame it.

The Gray Mustang

click here to bid   11 x 14 inches oil on canvas

 Actually I should of named the painting ''Sadie'' because thats what her owners named
her when they adopted her as a mustang. The family had some kids and she was really good with them. I really was trying to capture her character and not put all the focus on her conformational flaws. Sometimes the ones with the flaws turn out to be the best kind. I hope that she had a good life.
