Painting Demo for an Equine Therapy Program

I don't have to tell horse people how healing it can be to be around horses.  Sometimes non horse people need to be educated on the unique role horses can have in a hurting or troubled person's life.  I know for myself my horses have a way of grounding me, calming me and focusing me that I really can't get in the same way from anything else.  I painted this slightly abstract horse oil painting as a live demo during a fundraiser for PBJ Connections.   It was wonderful experience and I was very thankful to be a part of it.

This painting is sold but very likely we will be offering prints with a portion going to benefit this program.  You can check with me thru my web site at  if you have an interest and I will be sure to let you know when they are available.

Morning Light

Morning Light 11 x 14 oils

I went out early to photography my horses.   The ground had a heavy dew.  The mist had started to clear and bits of light came thru the trees.  My appy was content and serene so I came inside and painted this with thick paint, a palette knife and bristle brushes.  I let the painting just develop.

150.00 plus 8.00 for shipping
