"Lady And Her Horse" Casein on Paper 12 x 9"
The days have been flying by, as I play nurse-maid and farm manager at Cob Cottage, while my husband recuperates from his carriage driving accident at Acadia National Park. He is on the mend..., but it will be a slow process, as his 4 broken ribs heal. This means I have less actual studio time. But I have been able to squeeze some sketching time into each day, so as not to have them be a total loss art-wise. So I did do this casein on paper.....my take on a elegant lady and her steed, a painting prompted by the photography of Lisa Sjodahl for Coldwell Production in Sweden. Yvonne Lauklija is the producer of Coldwell Production and she has become a close Face Book friend!......and her horses are so handsome. She is the creative force behind this shot.
Another friend,a collector of my work, sent me a great shot of her driving horse,and carriage turnout. This prompted a pen and ink sketch.....I did it between waiting on my ailing husband.
It is about 8 1/2 x 12 " and is on Strathmore paper.

I am excited to say that my painting "Shades Of Gray #7- "Ladies In White" has made it into the top ten in the Bold Brush Competition...which qualifies it to be awarded a place in their "Fav15". This is a pleasant surprise. But the voting does continue until the end of the month....so if you are just reading this I would love to have your vote....just click the "like-button" up on their art show page.
