Watching horses grazing in their summer fields always gives me a feeling of peace. All is right with the world, in that moment in time.
I titled this casein painting "Dolce Castana" ..... It means "Sweet Chestnut" in Italian. Memories of Italy. I thought I had finished it yesterday, photographed it and then looked at it on my pc monitor. I wasn't happy with the values.....so I went back in and finished it today. It is done.
I have been in the studio working while Maine is blanketed with hot humid summer weather. My studio gardens are growing too tall and blossoming like crazy. So I paint horses?
