This is another "drawing challenge" from the Equine Art Guild >http://www.equineartguild.com/<. The source photo is of a young filly near Abu Dhabi in the U.A.E. so she is a "real" Arab, living in the desert. I loved the unusual pose, and that she was comfortable laying down with a photographer so near; that shows a level of trust and confidence that is so sweet. This is pastel on pastel board, 8x10, which I have never tried before. It deserves some more investigation. The pastel surface is still fragile but the board is much hardier than any paper.

This is a painting of a little Egyptian Arabian colt I'd visited last May, just a few days after he was born. That evening was such a beautiful one. It was warm, the sun was just starting to set, and this little guy was having a great time exploring his new world. Simple things would fascinate him and keep his attention, just until the next thing that came along to pique his curiosity. I thought I'd paint him looking at a small chickadee to show his innocence and sense of discovery. I hope you enjoy this one! It is available for purchase on my site at www.carolerodrigue.net PayPal is available. Thank you for looking!

"Stretch," 42" x 16", acrylic on gallery stretched canvas, thoroughbred painting. Inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org .
This is NOT a traditional portrait by any means. But I didn't intend that.
Instead I wanted an image that represented the breed, the beauty inherant in that full out stride, the tenderness seen in the reach for a peppermint, the green of reflected sunlight off Kentucky bluegrass.
This painting is more about the summation of a lifetimes' accumulated equine memories, and less about a specific horse or moment in time.
Despite it's scale, it retains a contemplative quality that encourages you to linger as you travel down that path of memory.
