New Painting Done In The Spring

"A Winter's Day"       casein on board      12 x 12"

I know it spring here on the farm, but I have just finished this painting of a cob on a cold snowy winter's day. This is our chubby little princess 'Maggie'  [pictured above] and her ever present pile of hay. The girl lacks for nothing...except maybe a bit of work! This painting will be able through my website.

Today the mail brought me notification that two of my paintings have been accepted into the New Jersey Equine Artists' Associations "Art Of The Horse 2010" exhibit which will be hanging at the Somerset Art Association in Bedminster, NJ. The show opens My 20th and runs until June 20th. I hope that you can get a  chance to see the works there...some of the best equine art work around!!This show is only a short distance from the USET headquarters in Gladstone.A perfect location for an art-show featuring the horse!! One of the paintings is also a winter scene...and a Welsh Pony too.....
"First Snow -Revisited"        mixed media       8 x 10"

This fellow was our granddaughter's first pony.His name "Frolic". Old Frolly won the hearts of many young girls...and elder women too! One of those once in a life time treasures of a horse!

Some other news  [Things are happening at Cob Cottage Studio!!] is that  my watercolor titled "Hello"  has been chosen to grace the May cover of Equine Marketer magazine ! This is the second time this publicatio has asked for use of my work for cover art. I am very honored to do so again!

So now back to the studio. I am working on a hunter jumper painting..almost done, this is a 40 x 30" canvas work......and I am still working on a figurative commission.....that also is almost done.

But first the dogs need walking...
Nell is getting ready to get up from her nap!

It looks like Nell knows that naps are serious business - a dog after my own heart! Haha

Such a nice post. I love the painting, the background is very interesting and show off the form of your horse so well. The sketch too, is charming!

Marie Theron said...

O yes, congratulations! I am sure you will be accepted in as many shows as you care to enter!

Congratulations - well deserved I'd say :o)

I love the painting of your Maggie - such a wicked glint in her eye. She is obviously spoiled (just like my mare who has been retired for 5 years and knows that life is just about eating and sleeping now)!!

Nell is a ham.......

and horses always attract my muse!
