Paint Party Friday May 25th, 2012



Thanks for visiting for Paint Party Friday!

I've been working on a series of primitive folk art Wild Horses.  This one is called "The Colts"

I'm creating this series and donating a percentage of the proceeds to Horse Rescue programs, including Wild Horse rescue programs.  

This piece was created by first drawing a simple sketch of a horse then cutting it out and creating a stencil.  The canvas was painted in Acrylic and it is 9 X 12.   This is the 3rd piece in my Wild Horses Series. Hope you like it as much as I do.




      

In this photo you can also see the finished torn paper Portrait I created of Tootsie Roll which I delivered to a very happy client today and at the top the 2nd in my Wild Horses series which you can see in the post previous to this one if you'd like a closer peek.




Thanks for visiting me for Paint Party Friday!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been up to!  Thank you to the always fabulous Kristen and Eva for hosting my favorite blog hop Paint Party Friday.

I do like it very very much and I can see this too as a fabric art quilt. ;-) my mind goes there when I am not drawing.
