Watercolor Progress on Western Horse and Cowgirl “Tell me it’s ok” by Debbie Flood


Tell me its ok progress 6 Large Web view

Tell me its ok progress 6 Medium Web view

Tell me its ok progress 4 Medium Web view

See….I have been working! This is a new watercolor that I started last week, I think. I get painting and the weeks all mesh together and time flies and I lose track of where I am on the calendar!

The title of this one is Tell me it’s ok. Watercolor on Arches 300lb paper.

Size: 14.5 x 11

The photo at the top of this post is where I have left off, on the progress for today. And I’ll be back at it tomorrow. I ‘m having trouble pulling my eyes away from this one. I love the colors, the composition and the story. The whole package! I took the reference photo here in Maine, at a horse show, and placed them in the New Mexico Landscape. This young lady was working with this horse, and taking him through the trail class, getting used to scary things, such as tarps and orange cones, that could jump up and eat him! I loved the communication that was going on between the two of them. So much trust was being learned that day.

Thank you for watching and reading.

I’m very pleased to announce that three of my watercolors were accepted into the International Museum of Art of El Paso, Sun Bowl Exhibit 2011. El Paso Texas. November 4 ~ December 31, 2011.

This is a mile stone for me! Why ?, you ask? , I have entered this exhibit in the past, (Artists are allowed to enter three works to be juried by a Museum Committee) and I’ve only been able to get one out of the three accepted. This year, all three were accepted! That’s huge for me!

The three paintings that have been accepted are:

‘Whispers on the wind’ Watercolor of Gray-White Quarter Horse in New Mexico by Debbie Flood

                      Whispers on the windJPG Medium Web view

‘Whispers on the wind’ 12 x 18 Watercolor

$800.00 No Frame

$1,200.00 Framed.

The end of June, 2011, I was in Angel Fire New Mexico, riding a great horse through the National Forests and Mountains of Angel Fire and over looking Eagle Nest Lake. What a gorgeous day that was. Filled with magic for me. Something like a Cinderella Story. The Prince of the story was the place, horses and Gallery Exhibit for me. 

This painting isn’t the horse that I rode, but it is one that was at the Ranch that day. Gorgeous white-gray Quarter Horse. The wind was blowing up dust devils and this horse was on the watch and listening for something in the wind.
