A great two weeks of horse show and painting. Ponies and leadline, dogs and barns, horses and spectators. I had hoped to get more paintings finished of the show and grounds, but a number of commissioned paintings were completed at the show. Some from photos, others from setting the easel up on location and painting. Here are a few....
Pony Morning - Blowing Rock 11 x 14 oil on canvas
The Wave - Leadline 8 x 10 oil on linen panel
Not much more to say about this.
By the Ingate 8 x 10 oil on linen panel (this painting is available)
In the Boxes 8 x 10 oil on linen panel
(the people in this painting were constantly coming and going, they were not all together at any one time. This painting available.)
At the Barn 8 x 10 Oil on canvas
In this painting, the barn was painted on location, the figure added later from a photograph (it was a gift to him)
A commissioned painting of her horses in their stalls, this collector agreed to have the second horse eating the fern. Thank you, so much more interesting, Oil on canvas, 8 x 24
4 x 6 Oil on linen panel
This painting was commissioned and given to the horse's owner as a gift from the rider.
More leadline paintings, horseshow paintings and eventually you will get to see paintings that are to be gifts some time in the future.
