|"Carriage Horse" Charcoal and Gouache on Strathmore Gray Scale paper - 7.5 x 10|
The age old profile of a classical horse...a carriage horse..... holds so much strength and nobility if its bearing.
I am playing around with some ideas for some future paintings. "Carriage Horse".... This charcoal and gouache work is now available.
Our weather in mid-coast Maine has been primo of late. Days of brilliant sunshine, with cool nights produced lovely fall foliage to decorate the forest that surrounds our farm. The colors are now gone. Our horses are reveling in green pastures and bug free grazing. Perfect weather for carriage driving. Not enough hours in the day to do everything we want to do....but lovely never the less. Waiting on the snow to start.
I have more work on my plate than ever and each day I awaken with purpose and joy ......ready to hit the studio and give life to new creations.
Paint and charcoal.... I paint.

|"Gather No Moss" , mixed media, 12 x 12" copyright 2017 www.kathipeters.com|
Always moving it seems. Seldom still. A horse grazes, covering ground in search of food.....and rolls to rid it's self of burdens and bugs.
A scene that is often seen on our farm ....and on farms and plains all across our land.
Like a rolling stone......gather no moss.
This is another in my foray into abstraction work. I will continue to explore my abstraction and representational mix. I hope you like it!
I will paint
"Gather No Moss" is available , and ready to ship to your home.

"Cavallo Nel Campo", oil ,12 x 12" www.kathipeters.com
Summer comes and goes too quickly it seems. It feels like only yesterday that we were planting seeds and waiting for them to sprout. Now we spend days mowing grass that grows too fast and trying, in vain, to keep up with the gardens and farm work. Days spent carriage driving at Acadia are few and far between . But I am getting into the studio and am painting and drawing as time allows. I have so many photos to pour over for future painting......as I actually look forward to slower days with the coming of fall.
