"Summer Breeze"

10 x 8"
Acrylic paint on 1/8" thick panel. 
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! 

I'm donating 20% of the sale of this painting 
to California Coastal Horse Rescue

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!
