"The New War Pony" Watercolor, has been juried into the 'Sun Bowl Exhibit 2013' hosted by the International Museum of Art of El Paso, Texas. Exhibit Dates are November 8, 2013 - January 5, 2014.
This year’s judge is renowned artist Aleksander Titovets. As a painter, Aleksander gravitates to what he calls “quiet paintings”, paintings which reveal a reflective and optimistic spirit. Titovets has been a guest speaker, art teacher, and juror since coming to the United States. Although the painter now resides in El Paso, Texas; he finds his inspiration in memories of his homeland. Some of his noted credits include “Best of Show” at the International Fine Art Competition for four years in a row. Also his portrait of former First Lady Laura Bush created “The First Ladies Gallery” in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Limited Edition and Open Edition Giclee Reproductions are available of this work through the Studio.
The Saddle on this Pony is a 1904 US cavalry enlisted man's saddle. To a warrior it would be a prized war trophy taken from the enemy and displayed as such, either if he was just on horse parade or he might even use it in battle.
If you saw a chief/warrior dressed in this manner - with full head Bonnet and the leather clothing, chances are he would not be going into battle, but rather on parade displaying all his trophies, as well as his honored war pony before everyone.
This full dress Nez Perce outfit was created and sewn by Debbie Herzman of the Calizona Appaloosa Horse Club. She provided the info, as well as photographs of the outfits and horses, for Deborah to create a work of art from. The Calizona Appaloosa Horse Club often showcases the outfits while riding their Appaloosa Horses, in the Rose Parade, in California and other functions.
The background landscape was derived from Deborah Flood’s own photographs and experiences in several Western States.

"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,
