|February 2008: Hello to all from my snow surrounded studio in Vermont. As you may wonder how all of the paintings appear for my show here is the place of creation! I have great plans for this summer and hopefully they will all fit into my schedule. I have done several non-horse pieces for a show at Tilting At Windmills Gallery that represents my 'Other' work and now I am focusing on my lovely equine.|
Street Sense,12 x 18
Oil on Belgium linen
Final Turn, 10 x 22
|My reference horse, Sana, now almost 36, is not displaying the muscle I need to see and this is partly because of her winter coat! But I have lots of reference material to help me out. As you can see I have two pieces that I have displayed. One is Street Sense easing to the front to win the 2007 Travers. What an exciting moment! I have the general color blocked in but now need to do the refining steps that will take some time. Street Sense is a beautiful horse and it has been fun to paint him. This oil is done on fine Belgium Linen and measures 12x18 without the frame.
The second piece is the final turn at Saratoga and quite a bunch they are. Usually they are strung out a bit more at this point, but it seems everyone is working at using that final power boost for the number one position. I may even do a larger one like this since it portrays so much excitement. The size shown is 10x22 without frame, and again an oil on Belgium Linen. Hopefully you will see it finished soon although I am starting some other pieces that I am very excited about as well. I like to keep several canvases going at once so I can pick and choose when the moment is right.
Final Turn, finished
2007: Classic Neel
This example comes from the race track in Saratoga Springs, NY during the 2007 summer meet at my gallery in the Holiday Inn.Saturday we went to the stable of Kiaran, Neil and Trish McLaughlin to paint the filly Classic Neel owned by Sheila and Fred Mead. A shuttle ran from the Holiday Inn to the stable and 40 plus attended. They enjoyed observing the workings of a stable, drank tea, ate scones and were able to see how I start my paintings. I began with a charcoal sketch of the filly and then proceeded to block in more definition with oil paints. After I entered the rough outlines I put in transparent color. The painting proceeds from dark to light. I will soon begin to add more detail and richer color.
