More Festival Inspiration
The two paintings below, Appaloosa and Indian Horse were also works created from the horses that were corraled next door to me during the National Folklife Festival. Indian Horse is 22x28 in acrylic. Appaloosa is about 15x20 (can't remember the exact dimensions, it's sold) and is the last horse painting I did in oil pastels. Having grown tired of dealing with glass, mat and framing, I decided to switch mediums. I miss the great immediacy that I have with the pigment directly in my hands, but the framing situation is much easier.
