Click HERE to bid, via Daily Paintworks
It’s been a long, wet, grey winter here in Portland. Painting for me has been sporadic until the birds started singing and the green of Oregon arrived just a couple weeks ago. To get myself back in the painting headspace, I spent an afternoon digging through photos. I came across a photo of my old mare, now 19, who is now happily living with a new family, and loved by a young girl. Illy has big, bright eyes and wide forehead. There is always a slight natural curl to her forelock. She was my muse for so long, it seemed like this spring was a good time to bring her back to the easel.
