New Paintings


I will be hanging several of my paintings in the Caracol Jewelry booth at Dressage at Devon this week. Here's a peek at three of them. I wanted to create some very simple pieces that let the horses stand out and won't take away from the beautiful jewelry. 
I haven't been to DAD in ages. Probably 10 years or more. I didn't even have a digital camera then, only my old Pentax k1000. I had to scan the below photo in of JB Andrew. I was so excited to see that horse. I even have his Breyer model. I was sad to read that Andy died this year. He was a beautiful black mustang, broken by prison inmates (JB stands for Jail Bird) and ridden to dressage fame by Kelly Boyd. I love how you can see his BLM brand.

Honey, these are exquisite pieces. So realistic you can almost 'touch' the horses.

Have a beautiful week.

Very nice work! I think the close ups on the simple background are a great idea. Best of luck at the show.

Lovely paintings Jen! I'm not familiar with JB Andrew. Wonderful story. He was a huge mustang from the looks of that photo. My old camera was a K1000 as well! I still love that thing, even though I know digital's the way to go now. Anyway, have fun at Devon!
