Sundance the Buckskin

“Sundance” ~ 12″ x 16″ oil on Raymar Panel
BID NOW on Daily Paintworks
My newest painting…I’ve always been particularly enamoured with the buckskin, ever since “Dances with Wolves”. I wanted that horse so bad! I love the feeling of exuberance in his pose, like he’s about to explode into flight. I tried hard to achieve that feeling of liquid gold, how the sun glistening off of a horse’s coat can sometimes look metallic. The photo didn’t turn out very good this time. I’ll try to post new photos when the paint dries and the glare dies down.
Also, it snowed here, at least 6 inches over the last few days. It makes it much harder to get good photos. I usually take photos of my art outside, on an overcast day, which isn’t usually hard to do here, because it’s usually overcast! But the snow bounces light all over the place. I’ll have to come up with another solution.
Well, Bye for now:)

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...
