“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” - Isaiah 53:5-6

A Winning Drive, abstract equine charcoal and pastel drawing by Carol Engles

11 x 17 charcoal and pastel on paper.

California Abstract Artist Carol Engles

WIP - Mustang Sally

Good Afternoon, This is my first ever blog so bear with me. This is my work in progress. It's on 9x12 canvas board in oil. I call it Mustang Sally. I've gone out of my comfort zone on this one. The working time is approx 2 hours. I am now waiting for it to dry so I may detail more of the mane, as in the reference photo it is quite long and wispy and covers alot of her face. I deliberately used a free style and brush stroke, which is a 180 degree turn for me as I am used to detailing every hair, bump, whisker, and vein in my paintings. It took alot of self control not to pick up the detailing brush and a magnify glass!! I did use the detail brush for her eye, but tried to keep it as simple as possible. I plan on painting a series of these simple, free style pieces, as I donot have much for inventory. I'm enjoying not being so "anal" about the details and am surprised at how the more basic I keep the painting the better it is evolving. I am also trying to use a limited colour pallette. I will post once the mane is done and it will be offered for sale.

'Secret Getaway' Equine Watercolor by Debbie Flood

This is one of my latest Watercolors. Secret getaway. You know, when I had horses growing up, I was always making a get away on my pony or horse. Such a wonderful feeling to jump on and go. It takes one to another place and time of imagination and stresses just melt away.
For me, now, I don't have the horse to jump on to 'getaway'. I probably couldn't jump on one now, if my life depended on it! But what does take me away, is creating works like this in my studio. The light in this bounces all around, the colors are bold, and the horse is sculpted in the paint. It takes me away every time I look at it.
Secret getaway is 11 x 13 inches and being offered for $1,200.00.
For more of my equine watercolors, visit my website at http://www.debfloodart.com

Thank you!

"MINE THAT BIRD " 2009 KY derby winner by L.Scepkova

One of the famous racehorses who inspired my artwork was 2009 Kentucky Derby winner, Mine That Bird.


It was done in graphite pencil, size 18x18 inches, and it was titled:
"Mine That Bird- 2009 KY Derby Trophy" 

I spent years and years by riding racehorses on a racetrack and it`s always nice to bring the memories back by creating an art piece with horse racing theme on it. So I am sure there will be more. I still go to the races to watch or make some pictures, catch some new inspiration for my art.

AVAILABLE for sale NOW! Please contact me via my website.

“Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.  But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:15-17

"Heading for Trails" -equine art by L.Scepkova



This idea came to my mind once we were in the woods and we saw weekend trail riders out there. There was a renting barn over there that was offering a trail ride for anyone and also boarding horses.




Is is smaller art piece done in graphite, depicting a quarter horse waiting for its rider to finish tacking up to head out for trail riding. Horses usually love going out on trails!



Image size is 9x12 inches. It was professionally matted & framed up to 14.5 x 16.25 inches. 

AVAILABLE for sale NOW! Please contact me via email if interested

Urgency Abstract Horse Painting by Texas Equine Artist Laurie Pace

URGENCY
30 x 40 inches Oil on Canvas         
© Laurie Pace Graphics One Design 1998-2011  
Contact me: Laurie

This painting will be at my show at Mirada Fine Art, opening in July 2011. 
Contact Steve at Mirada Fine Art.




 Okay so I scraped The Majestic Three and they become the URGENT two.  The Abstract Horse Painting is very unpredictable.  I finish a painting and I know.. I know before I walk away from the canvas that the journey is not done. I know that I have to go back and rework and free the horses.  It happens every time I try to do an impressionistic equine piece.

The layering of color with a palette knife is never predictable. Emotion and eye control the placement and use of color on the canvas.


Enjoy! Visit my daily blog at www.lauriepace.blogspot.com

3 Amigo's work in progress

 
An up date on these little guys.. I spent today working on the middle amigo's yellow shirt.. jury is still out if I need to knock back the shadows a little.. once the indigo of the jeans is added I'm sure it will look a lot different.

 
Also started on the little girl amigo on the left lots to do to finish her shirt.. wanted to use a softer colour from the boys so Ive chosen rose madder.
