Painting at Home
An update is due. All is well with my mare, Angel, but the medications continue. The veterinarian gave Angel a good review, changed her medication schedule so I now do not have to hike to the barn at 10:30 PM. Last call is now 8:00 PM and I go out more often during the day to medicate Angel's eye, starting at 7:00 AM. Needless to say I am not getting a lot of rest. I am getting quality time with my horses since they all get treats and brushing when I am working with Angel. After 7 weeks of doctoring I have three very spoiled horses.
I have been painting and I spent two full days on a painting and was just about ready to photograph it and made a change and then made another change and finally scrapped the whole darn thing. It happens! Right now I have two paintings in the 'almost ready to photograph stage'. Wish me luck.
I am sharing a photo of a painting in my home of my mare Mystery. It is 60x40-inches, what one would consider a large painting. My home is quite small, almost cabin like, and the large work exhibits well in the small space. Never be afraid to purchase a large painting. You will fall in love with the painting and it will become part of your home. Something to consider when out shopping for a piece of art. Being an artist and a horse owner has made for "Painting Days".
