My favorite show of EVER opens this weekend and I have just finished the last 2 works in the series of "HEAVEN" ...

Always know I will get you into the gate and remember this show has great values for Art.
Thanks, Karen ...


Dancer, KoKo, Dad, and Me

This is my horse, Dancer; she is an ex-racehorse, and she won her first race by 5 lengths. She and I have worked out several kinks on settling her down since, and I am proud to say I was only run into the fence once, and side sidled off once. This doesn’t seem like something to be proud of, but for all the times she tried her hardest to buck me off, she was never successful, and now, after 8 years, we have a great respect for each other.

It was my first inclination to draw the horses when I was 8 years and was actually published in “Appaloosa News” for a drawing that my mom submitted. So, I guess it’s safe to say riding horses and art have been my inspiration my whole life.

Enjoy the world of Art and Horses with me at my Instagram and Facebook accounts.
