Fairy Princess

I thought I would post a fun painting today.. A few years back I painted my Granddaughter sitting on a Moon.   My cousin always wanted her daughter painted as the Fairy Princess sitting on a Moon as well.  Of course, Samantha is not a child fact, she's all grown up and a School teacher but her Mom still wanted this magical painting of her...I had so much
fun painting this pastel and hope you like it as well...

Baiting Hollow Farm

I took the reference picture of this sweet horse in Baiting Hollow Farm vineyard on Long Island.  It's not only a vineyard but a horse haven.  The horses here have been given a second chance in this beautiful sanctuary.   You can clearly see these rescued horses were given so much love...they were once marked for destruction and now they are safe and secure.  When you buy wine from the winery, a portion of the profits support the horse rescue....So, if you're on Long Island it's a wonderful place to visit!!  And the wine is outstanding!!!

Golden Beauty

I rarely paint horses but I enjoy seeing them on everyone's blog so I decided to paint a pastel portrait of this beauty after seeing this on  I loved painting this cropped version so you can see all those wonderful details.  Last Saturday, I visited a horse farm on Long Island and took some reference shots for another horse portrait which I'm doing now in oils.    I hope you like my Golden Beauty...
