Spring in the Mountains, Mustang Mare and Foal. Oil by Deborah Flood

Spring in the Mountains 20 x 21 Oil Large Web view

New Mustang Painting, fresh off the easel!
"Spring in the Mountains"
20 x 21 Inches.
Oil on hand stretched Linen Canvas.  (yes, I put together the stretcher bars, and cut the canvas, and stretched it to the bars. Very hands on work of art!)

Since the passing of my artist grandmother, I have her supplies and materials. So I’ve been stretching the rolled Linen canvas onto stretcher bars.

I have found that I enjoy stretching my own, and building the size I want, and not relying on a store or manufacturer to decide for me. It’s rather freeing, and feels a lot more like a hands on experience and piece of art!


I worked up this painting, from a reference photo I took on my trips out to New Mexico.


Purchase inquiries welcome. And the piece is listed on my website in the Oil Painting Portfolio.
Enjoy,
Deborah Flood

Sometimes time is all you need.

After taking a break from this piece over the weekend, this morning I saw immediately what needed to be done. And I did it. Or so I think - we'll see what my eyes tell me tomorrow morning!

Meanwhile, I sorted through 77 Valentines Day Painting Giveaway entries - you can see the finalists on FB. Which photo do you think I'll be painting on Friday?

Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
Warmly, Kim

This is my friend Kimme's horse. She graciously let me do a painting
from the beautiful photo she took of him. Kimme is a wonderful person 
who is a true advocate for animals and works endlessly for them. 
Every year she puts on a huge event to sponsor 
I am honored to know her and the horses at the rescue are 
lucky to have her on their side!

Alcohol Ink painting, "The First Snow of the Season"

"First Snow of the Season"
9X12 inch painting on Yupo paper

This is a painting, created with Ranger Alcohol Inks, by Tim Holtz.  A friend of mine encouraged me to try this medium, I tried it, I didn't like it.  The inks are very runny, spread quickly, and make a big dark line around where they are put onto paper or tile.  They seemed very obnoxious to me!

But I didn't give up, I thought about the  inks for a year, and I think I found a new way to work with the inks that I liked.  This painting is the result.  I'm glad I didn't give up on the inks, I'm glad I found a new way to work with them, that suits me.  I liked this horse!  She reminds me of the way my Stormy looks at the snow in winter.

This painting is going to appear in an ebook that showcases Alcohol Ink artists.

I hope you enjoy seeing it!
Sincerely,
Donna Ridgway
