Signs Of Spring

"Signs Of Spring" , oil on gallery canvas, 8 x 10" copyright 2018
 
We have raised several foals on our farm....two Tennessee Walking colts and two Welsh Cob foals, a filly and a colt. I have painted them all over the years. I could not get through this spring without foals. So I have painted some.....not ours this time. I do miss having our own foals running around the farm, but I can paint them.
This fine foal is feeling the joy that is spring, in a world with sweet new green growth and blue skies. He's looking for his forever  home! 
 This oil painting is on gallery wrapped canvas, ready to hang on your wall.

Small Oil Commission - Oak Forest In Fall

 

    
"Fox In The Oaks"- Commisiioned oil on copper 6 x 8" copyright 2018 www.kathipeters.com

First commission of the year is finished and framed, ready to ship out next week to its new home. Usually a commission portray a clients favorite equine friend, a four legged fur-kid, canine or feline, or a person. Yes, and  I have even painted an osprey with his nest for a repeat client......but painting an oil of an oak forest, that was out of the client imagination, was a first! We worked together , virtually 'putting our heads together" and this is the forest that she envisioned and I captured. She wanted an oil on copper and so that is what I went with. A sneaky fox was added into the mix. The painting came together and we are all happy.
 
Our winter has been hard so far. The older I get, the harder it is to maintain a horse farm and pursue my art endeavors. I've been dibbing and dabbing at work.....painting more works in my head than what have been actually put to canvas or paper. I've painted a lot in my sleep too. But I imagine that doesn't count in one's actual body of work.  I know spring is coming. So stay tuned.
I will paint!
 
And if you are so inclined as to pursue my producing a commissioned work for your walls.......your vision.....let's talk. I am easy to work with.

The Net


"The Net" , casein on board, 12 x 12" copyright2018 www.kathipeters.com

 

While watching the draft carriage horses at the stables, as they were being hitched to the carriages they would be pulling to take the summer tourists on their  trip across the carriage roads of Acadia, I was attracted to the fly nets that covered their bodies. I liked the way their lines covered the hefty bodies of the horses. I liked that it was a non-chemical solution for deterring bothersome flies the hefty draft horses. I liked how the way the simple thin delicate lines created interest on the horses'  muscled bodies. And I love the abstract design that I captured in the photos that I took as we readied our horses to go out on our drive.
Thus this painting.
 
 I know spring is somewhere out there....as we just experienced yet another snow storm. I am grateful for the hours I am able to sneak out of a day from taking care of home and hearth and barn chores. The eternal hope of spring helps.
 
Until then.....I paint.

Young Does On Our Farm

"Young Does" charcoal  on Strathmore Gray Scale paper , 9 x 12"


Often, on my walks around our farm , I come upon wildlife that share our woods. These young deer were grazing on a patch of green that grows in our over grown woods. I've captured them in charcoal.... maybe to paint at some future point.
 This sketch has been sold.

Fly High

 
"Fly High " , mixed media , 10 x 12.5"

Looser than most of my work, this painting is done in charcoal, acrylic, casein and oil. I pushed into an abstract background
portraying a gray pushing his limits. I'm guilty of doing just that at times.... pushing my limits.
 
Shipping  and handling within the continental USA  is included in the price of this painting.

Volare Study

 
"Volare-Study" charcoal and gouache, 5 x 7"

It's time for horses playing in snow, brilliant blue skies against winter's white snow.
I have an idea for a larger painting  and this the study for that painting.
Stay tuned for the painting....AND the study can be yours now.
Shipping within the continental USA is included in its price.
