Carriage Horse at St. Stephen’s Green

(please click to make it big!)
I now have total respect for the dude (or dudette) that invented the wheel! Or anyone that can paint them well…OMG! I spent an hour on that smaller wheel, and it’s still not right! It was right, in pencil, once, then I inked it and screwed it all up! (Which I tend to do a lot)  Lol! Anyways…watercolor doesn’t really do what I want on this paper…I guess because it’s not white it makes everything a tad muddy…but oh well, I’m still pretty happy with this one.  It still took all day. I might have to take a few days off of the sketchbook and do some “serious” art, so my hubby starts taking my “stay at home artist” act seriously, though:P.  
A little factoid for you all…Carriage, as it is written on my pic, was actually written on the pavement…parking spots for horses!

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...

  1. This is amazingly nice. I love both the carriage and the horse. I can see what you mean that you are spending so much time on the journal that you don't have time for your other painting. So much art to create, so little time : )
