Kennebec Starwalker


In last year's 2007 Lobster Bake and Concert held at Skyline Farm in North Yarmouth, Maine, a young lady from West Bath won the animal portrait that I donated for The Skyline Carriage Museum's fund raising silent auction. Becky decided on a head shot and this is the graphite of her handsome one and a half year old colt, Kennebec Starwalker. The colt is of course from the wonderful Morgan line bred by Ms. Margret Gardiner. Becky is going to have some fun with this boy as he grows and fulfills his destiny. Morgan's are such a wonderful breed!!
This scan is a bit cropped, with the original being a bit more open with space around this fellow's intelligent face. My graphite's are usually done as studies for the watercolor commission work to follow, but lately folks are seeming to be very interested in the studies on their own.
A fog is hugging our fields and woods now, after snowing all morning. I think I will go down and put the horses into their stalls. The ending of another day........
