"Jump Start" casein on board 12 x 12"
copyright 2009 Kathi Peters

Yesterday it was a real Northeaster that roared around outside our home, while I stayed cozy working in my studio. I am working on several paintings, some for Xmas.... so will not be posting them now. But one I can show is a 12 x 12" casein on board of a frolicking foal just startled by some birds, as he plays in his pasture. The reference shot was provided by a great photographer, Vicki Wright. She is kind enough to have provided this shot and I finally have painted it! I will get a better shot of the finished painting when the snow flakes stop falling around here.

So winter has started here in Mid coast Maine.....gray again today, so far, and big fat snowflakes fall from steel gray skies. I am headed down to clean horse stalls and let the dogs run....but will be back in the studio as deadlines are fast approaching and there seems to not be enough hours in a day. We haven't even started shopping for Christmas gifts for family..........maybe tomorrow?...if it doesn't snow??
