I’m very pleased to announce that I have been Elected and Selected by the Founder and the judging Committee, to be an active Member in the American Society of Traditional Artists, ASTA

This is a very prestigious organization, founded in 2010 by Ed Copley.

Mr. Copley is also a founding member of the International Guild of Realism, which I was Elected into, in 2011/2012.

The Watercolor Painting above is a new painting I recently completed. This painting is at the Pro Printer/Photographer getting ready for Limited Edition and Open Edition Prints. If you are interested in reserving a print, please send me an email

Hanging on by a thread, 21.5 x 29.5 inches. Watercolor. This is another recently finished watercolor.

Once I get the last 2 paintings finished and framed, I’ll just about be ready for the Solo Museum Exhibit, which will include 40 watercolor paintings. I’ll be driving there June/July and spending about a month out in the West. I’m really looking forward to the trip, meeting artist friends along the way and getting a lot of reference photos! My oldest son, who graduates from High School this June, will be going with me as well as a good friend’s daughter who is also graduating this June. It’s going to be a fun road trip!

We’ll also be spending some time in Angel Fire New Mexico, with my friend and Gallery Representation, Katherine. We’re hoping to get in some horse back riding in the Mountains there. And, work in a trip to the Monero Mustang Sanctuary.

Thank you for browsing my watercolor work and please share if you would like.

"Iris Upon a Star" by Oklahoma Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy

"Iris Upon a Star"

This one was created with someone special in mind that I'm 
close to who loves irises, paso's, purple and green. This lovely paso fino mare is thrilled to be in the midst of these gorgeous multi-colored purple and yellow irises. This is another that brings to mind a snippet of my past. As a young mid teen I wished upon a star hoping for love to find me, and that time, my wish came true. Can you see the star in this painting? What wishes do you have that could come true if you really believe? Titled "Iris Upon a Star", this acrylic has been painted on an 18"x24"x1.5" gallery wrap canvas. Sold.
