When I first started painting, the landscape was my chosen subject and then one day I looked out to the pasture at my four horses and asked myself why I was not painting these beautiful creatures? I started painting just the eye of the horse on 8x8 inch canvas'. It was a fun project. I am still enamored with the horse's eye and continue to paint focused-cropped-portraits. This eye portrait is a painting of Diamond, a beautiful Palomino mare and it is one of the first paintings of my eye series. Seeing the beauty of the horse made for, "A Painting Day".
