painting: cowgirl


This is a custom piece, for a customer who needed to fill a specifically shaped space. Isn’t it great to be able to find just-the-thing?

It was fun to paint, and is 12″x30″.


painting: a hare and a horse (10/09/18)

These both have a slat frame, but Home Depot stopped selling the wood I liked. This is thinner, and a touch narrower. I guess I like it okay, maybe the other kind was too heavy? It’s just odd when someplace stops selling something. There’s not even a slot and label for it anymore, so it’s not coming back.

This Belgian hare was at the fair a couple years ago. I don’t know if they make good pets–you just never see them. I sure like their litheness, and thin features.

And this horse is just fun. What a mash of colors.

painting: bay horse glance (10/01/18)

Whew, are we really closing in on the end of 2018? It sure went by like nothing flat.

In anticipation of the Christmas holiday, I have everything in my etsy shop at 10% off. Can I afford to do that? No. Am I doing it anyway? Go take a look! Everything new I list this month will be included in the sale, including this beautiful bay horse giving a flirty look back.


I’m sure it won’t be in stock long, so don’t miss out. 😀

12″x12″ oil on stretched canvas, available here.

painting: blue horse (09/11/2018)


This horse was part of a two-horse pose that I thought would work great as a stand alone. And success, I’m happy with how it turned out. You might see him again standing with a friend–but you never know. I have a HUGE to-do folder, and some I intend to revisit but just never get around to.

12″x12″ oil on stretched canvas. Available in my etsy shop.

He won’t be blue the next time, but probably natural colors. Daughter says, “But he looks like he’s part of the landscape.” Me: “Well, yeah, that’s part of the point….”


painting: horse friends (08/24/18)


We’re back from the fair, and I took photos of lots of lovely models to become new artworks this coming year.

The above are from last year (although I recognized a lot of the same horses), and didn’t this painting turn out lovely?
