With Feathers Flying

6x6 oil on panel
$100 + s/h

Loved this carriage horse who was so proudly tossing his head, shaking that pretty plumage and trotting around Central Park in June. I'm working on a couple of larger park horse paintings now too. So much for my ballet ideas (for now!)

I can't tell you how happy I am though to have these busy weeks behind me and be able to just focus on painting what makes me happiest.

this is beautifully composed. You caught his attitude. Lately, I've been reading books about horses. Check out Judith Renee Singer for some funny 'chick lit' horse stories. Another fabulous book I read this past year was The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. This one centers around dogs but it's an unusual and beautifully written story.
....for a rainy day :D

The tilt of the head gives such and attitude of the horse. The lighting makes it glow.
