Where have I been?

I’ve realized it’s been a while since I posted anything on this blog and it’s time to visit again!! I have been enjoying spending a lot of my time in Santa Fe, where having horses in the high desert has proven to be a wonderful thing. Not to mention painting in the amazing lighting, at this altitude, has been a welcome venture!
I’ve produced several watercolors for 2015 as well as a couple oils, one of which I’m sharing with you. The subject of this painting came to mind when I thought back on my younger days and having to haul a saddle out to my horse to go ride every day. Here in this painting I’m showing a 1960 Chevy Apache truck, with my saddle thrown over the side. The blanket underneath is a Navajo pattern. Tied to the back is an American Quarter Horse, representing muscle – just like that workhorse truck. The setting is beneath the Sangre de Cristo mountains where lighting blankets everything.
“Plenty of Horsepower”, an 21 x 34 oil on canvas, gallery wrap style- where the truck wraps around the side of the canvas.

I am always interested in celebrating the horse in art, and there’s a show just for that purpose. Check out An Equine Jubilee at The Arts Castle in Delaware, Ohio Aug. 26 – Oct. 23. You can certainly visit in person, or go online to see the array of horse related art being offered up. You can also see this piece that will be displayed there called, “A Steady Gaze”.

The Stages of an Oil Painting

I recently completed a painting, and thought I would share a progression in photos. I compiled it all in a video viewable on YouTube.

Stop in for a visit and see “Mi Mejor Caballo” an oil painting of a young Charra and her horse!
