"My Pretty Pony I," 10" x 10", the last installment in this year's Derby Week horse inspired paintings, done in acrylics on a museum quality panel. $349 to the first asking nicely.
The Princess was delighted that I had pulled out her ponies - she's not played with these for years, and spent some time brushing their hair and readying the others for a turn on the easel.
A few in process pics are on the studio Facebook page - this is a crummy, dark and flat photo, and I'll have to replace it with a scanned image - the painting has a lot more color and life to it than this properly shows.
And if you know this particular pony's name, please let me know so that I can retitle the painting.
Here's to a safe trip tomorrow for all the horses on the card at Churchill Downs,

The New War Pony 22 x 29.5 inches, Watercolor.
I’m very pleased to announce that I have been Elected and Selected by the Founder and the judging Committee, to be an active Member in the American Society of Traditional Artists, ASTA
This is a very prestigious organization, founded in 2010 by Ed Copley.
Mr. Copley is also a founding member of the International Guild of Realism, which I was Elected into, in 2011/2012.
The Watercolor Painting above is a new painting I recently completed. This painting is at the Pro Printer/Photographer getting ready for Limited Edition and Open Edition Prints. If you are interested in reserving a print, please send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
Vantage Point 22 x 29.5 inches Watercolor.
Vantage Point is also at the Printer’s and getting ready to be printed.
I’ve been working steady, creating the last few works for the Solo Museum Exhibit in The International Museum of Art of El Paso Texas July 7- August 25, 2013.
Hanging on by a thread, 21.5 x 29.5 inches. Watercolor. This is another recently finished watercolor.
Once I get the last 2 paintings finished and framed, I’ll just about be ready for the Solo Museum Exhibit, which will include 40 watercolor paintings. I’ll be driving there June/July and spending about a month out in the West. I’m really looking forward to the trip, meeting artist friends along the way and getting a lot of reference photos! My oldest son, who graduates from High School this June, will be going with me as well as a good friend’s daughter who is also graduating this June. It’s going to be a fun road trip!
We’ll also be spending some time in Angel Fire New Mexico, with my friend and Gallery Representation, Katherine. We’re hoping to get in some horse back riding in the Mountains there. And, work in a trip to the Monero Mustang Sanctuary.
Thank you for browsing my watercolor work and please share if you would like.
