Horses

I paint things that I love, and horses are an important part of my daily life. We have 3 mares at home now and have been keeping horses at home for the past 20 years. Even when I can’t ride, their beautiful energy is wonderful to have at our home. After more than 30 years grooming horses, my hands have great knowledge of the muscles, shapes and crevices. Painting them unites me with them, even when I am traveling for my engineering work.

Please click on the paintings to see them clearly. I paint by glazing transparent layers of color to create depth and vibrancy.
