Before I painted "Mercury", I painted this smaller and similar to the fire within painting called "The Spark Within" with acrylic on a 12"x 12" canvas. I love this particular pose, it has such good lines and is a joy to paint. $150.00 + s&h.

I had a very emotional weekend. I lost two horses, both loved. One was sold and went to a great new home- a happy ending despite my sadness that she is now gone. The other was by death, we lost our 28 year old BLM mustang Mercury. He was a very special horse, smart, kind, self assured, a good leader, fun ride for anyone, charismatic and personable. His death was tragic, but he had someone there right to the end. I've done this celestial piece to honor him, may he have his winged fleet hooves once again like the Greek God he was named after, and I called it simply "Mercury". It's acrylic on a 12"x12"x1.5" gallery wrap canvas and will be for sale at my Spring Sweet Earth Studio solo show.

I liked the "mosaic" look I recently did so much I tried it again and came up with "Zorse" representing the crossing of a horse with a zebra. And used some of my favorite colors too. This is 16"x 20" on canvas done with acrylics. $250.00 + s&h. This is available immediately. "Zorse" is on it's way to a new home!

Though my solo show was postponed until sometime this Spring, I am still working on creating to add to the pieces for display. I find it very rewarding personally to have the excitement supercharging the creative urge, pushing myself to grow. This is my newest using my style yet not like I usually approach the painting, instead of loose definition, I used the lines as a guide for color blocking. I am very pleased with it, and will try this again. Called "Jewel", it's acrylic on a gallery wrap 20"x16"x1.5" canvas.
