I was playing with all the brights. I usually leave out green, and this time there’s just a touch. I usually stay away from moments where a horse is pulling a face, but in this case I thought it was a good match for all the colors. Playful and silly.

I’ve been trying to paint horse friends, with one more to show off tomorrow. People tell me what I should paint, and sometimes I listen. Friendly horses hanging out, yes, that’s a visual concept I can get behind. I’m told I should paint fewer horse butts, but I think I’ll ignore that advice for a while longer.

My painting mojo ebbs and flows and this week it definitely whooshed back in.  I will have six paintings to list, so keep checking back and see what’s new. 🙂

This one is painted on an extra-deep canvas, with the colors wrapped around so it will not need framing.

Available in my etsy shop now.

This one has a bleak feel to it, doesn’t it?

Not that it should, the pose is pretty standard, but the colors lead it that way.

I felt really lucky to spot a black horse flashing a bit of shoe. I look at *all* the horses hoping to get a glimpse of shoe, but either the grass is too long, the saw dust too deep, the horse unshod entirely, or too much yard muck caught inches deep. I look, and sometimes I get lucky. The sun has to cooperate, too. It’s all a cross-your-fingers sort of thing, so I just don’t capture as many shoes as I’d like.

This one is on a chunky canvas. I stocked up on this size, 1-1/2″ deep, thinking I’d find it easier to sit down every day and just paint something small. It’s not happening yet, though.
