Snow bound And Two New Small Horse Paintings






The blanket of snow that covers our farm will become a subject to be painted in the near future, I am sure. I have said it before and I will say it again....I could stay on this farm and I would have enough scenes that I could paint for my life time.

Here is one..... !!!!

Winter Horse Casein Painting & Feeling Like Christmas

Winter Horse Casein Painting & Feeling Like Christmas






 Every winter morning on the farm, the horses are turned out to spend their days eating hay and meandering around their fields and paddocks. The winter months are lazy days for them In the spring we start back driving....but now you can find scenes like this casein painting as a daily occurance.  This painting is the latest painting added to my Equine Art section on my website. It is offered at a reduced price , unframed. I hope "The Cob On A Winter Morn" will make someone happy for Christmas.

Today it snows...The horses were out all morning , but when the snow started building up on their backs, they wanted in...back into their cozy stalls and out of the cold winter mix of snow and sleet that is covering our farm.  I am working in my cozy studio on the last of my commission work, and then I will have to get into Christmas mode. The Studio already has a small Christmas tree giving it a festive air.


Then after the holidays I have some great work that I hopefully will be revealed....Time will tell.

Now I need to paint!!

New Painting Of Dosing Drafts Done

This was originally posted on my studio blog .  10/20/2013


 
“Sleeping Grays” is done…. and I am back working on one of several commissions that I accepted. "My Studio Clean up Sale" is still on…so don’t forget to check it out, as I have added a few new paintings to the sale and will continue to do so for a bit longer. Thank you to everyone who has helped me so far clean out and gain back studio space for creating!

My days in the studio seem to fly by and Nell is always with me when I work. She works too. Squirrel guard is a very strenuous job…..Sometimes she needs to take power naps [too]!
 


My gardens are still providing color and eye candy. Soon though, all will be gray surrounding the farm, until snow comes and blankets it all with white, and the blue and purple shadows of the long winter light.
 
 


 
Each season has its own glory. I enjoy them all.
