The International Museum of Art is proud to present:
The Horse; Spirit, Art, and Soul is a Signature Members exhibition of Equine Art in different media forms.
Founded September 16, 2010 by USA Equine Artist, Deborah Flood, The International Equine Artists was formed for artists who enjoy creating the horse in art. The group started out as a handful of equine artists from the USA, Canada and Australia, who wanted a place to network, share, and have an online community and professional presence. The Organization is based in the USA, but to accommodate those two other Countries, "International" was added to the Business Name. As the group became more popular, more artists from many different Countries around the globe requested to join. The membership has blossomed into a wonderfully diverse group of artists.

Every summer I visit Saratoga, New York - I drive through Canada and pick up Linda Shantz near Toronto, then we meet up with Jenifer Trottier (New Jersey), Juliet Harrison (New York) and Sharon Passmore (Tennessee). We spend our time talking horses and art while taking in the local gallery scene and getting as many hours at the track as possible.
Reference photos shot during those few days together fuel a year's worth of creating. That's where the pics behind "Squeaky Clean" came from.
Thanks as always for following along with my artwork,
|"Tribute To Glory" oil painting on canvas|
This lovely mare is Glory. She was my horse's best friend when I first bought him. She died a few years later, and this oil painting is my tribute to this sweet mare.
I began the painting several years ago and have worked on it sporadically over the years. Since being laid up with a broken leg, I figured now was a very good time to finish her up and introduce her to the world.
"Tribute To Glory" is a 12x12 inch oil painting on stretched canvas. She will be for sale once varnished and framed, or you can have her unframed if you wish for $375. You can contact me through my website, Equine Artist Karen Thumm

Desert Cowgirl 8 x 6 Oil on Canvas SOLD, to the UK.
So, I just read on another Social Media, written by a Gallery, “Start the sky first”.
Hmmm….gee…I stopped painting the sky first as of late! I always used to start with the top of the canvas and move down to the horizon. Always the same way, the same results, the same…same….same….
Lately, I’ve made the decision to get back into my oils. Literally, some days (with it all over my hands…hair…face…and probably inside me too!).
I’m creating some little study pieces, 5 x 7 , 8 x 10 and such.
I’ve limited my palette to three colors and a white. It is quite freeing, and not constricting at all. No color choices to make. I mix my own!
What I start with is an under painting, that hopefully will glow through, covering the whole canvas. Then using a wet into wet technique I add my shadows and find my subject matter, and then create shadows upon the land. I find dark shadows, light shadows and work and blend. Then I take that brush with some of those earth colors on it, and I start working the sky. That sky takes on the reflections of the earth, as in real life. The skies aren’t that typical “Blue” we think they are when we look up at the sky. The clouds often reflect lots of color and all that dust that gets kicked up during the day. It’s all up there.
So what does this do for my painting? Well, it creates a uniform painting, like it all flows and belongs in the same image, like it should.
Here are a few more works I’ve been creating with this method. Each sky is a bit different, with a different mood, different glow and different meaning for the story being told.

If you are the first person to respond with TAG!!!! beneath the painting, you just won yourself a painting. I gave away the first painting this morning. It was a 4X4inch painting of a horse's eye. In the reflection, you see a car going down a gravel road. I love painting eye reflections in horse's eyes.
I don't care if some artists tell me that is "cliche" or "overdone" or if they say they are sick and tired of seeing horse's eyes in photos and paintings. I do it anyway and Kathy Tilander-Doyle, who won the painting, was totally delighted with it! That was so much fun.
Here's the painting:

I've got some fun news about my latest horse painting called "Where's the Peep?"
What horse person doesn't recognize this face? This is much loved face from a really fun perspective otherwise known as "The Mooching For Peeps Face". The inspiration for this painting came from a Hanovarian mare, named Wrose, that I had the privilege of training for close to two years. She is a real character and her owner, Amanda, discovered that Wrosie had a penchant for Peeps. You know..those marshmallow chicks that come out around Easter? It seems they are also available for a lot of other holidays so Amanda and I would load up after the holidays when the ghost Peeps, bunny Peeps, Santa Peeps, etc.. all go on sale. Wrose could hear the subtle rustle of the cellophane that comes on the Peeps packaging and she would just go nuts nickering for her most favorite treat ever. This, my friends, is the face of a Peeps moocher.
