Beautiful Belgian Horses With a Nip In The Air

The weather has taken a turn and there is a lovely chill in the air that whispers of fall, leaves starting to change color and the veggie garden has slowed down. I have pulled out most the veggies, leaving tomatoes to ripen and Swiss chard to grow in the clean fall like air. I now we have several weeks left of summer. I will take it with joy. Then begins fall’s cascading colors and even the cooler nights. Life goes on the farm with the never ending chores.
This recently done oil painting is drying and available on my website. Draft horses from the stable in Seal Harbor, Maine……The beautiful big pairs that carry the sight seekers along the carriage roads of Acadia. The drivers have groomed them nicely and added the lovely touch of braiding the big horses’ tails. It was that extra touch that caught my eye and prompted me to paint them.

When I haven’t been in the studio painting I have been outside painting and trying to paint doors on the house and then there is the new horse-fencing that needs staining…….yup………….never ending chores on a small Maine farm.
