Horse Portrait "Determined Spirit"


This horse portrait I felt needed a little more work
on lost and found edges. So a couple of days
before I entered it into the Gainesville Fine Arts Association Winter exhibit -
the pastel and I "had a little chat".
But after I finished the painting, placed the
museum glass in the frame and sealed
it up - to my dismay I had forgotten to photograph
the final portrait!
Help, I need an artist assistant!
Oh well...so this image is not the pastel as it exists now,
but it's the only photograph I have to post now.
I was thrilled that my pastel portrait,
"Determined Spirit" of this
horse with such grace and beauty
receive Best of Show in the
GFAA Winter Members' Art Show.
The exhibit runs until March 24th at
Trinity in Gainesville.
There are over 65 works of art on display.
So gallop on over to view it.
