As tradition in Painting a Dog a Day, the week before the Kentucky Derby is turned over to the horses. This week is an excuse to indulge in my lifelong love - I don't specifically paint Thoroughbreds during Derby Week but revel in all equine shapes and colors.
So here's your first piece, a draft mix lazily grazing his way into the picture plane while the sun glances off his flanks. This is Tony, a huge lug of a sweetheart belonging to a good friend of mine who also happens to be a brilliant equine photographer. Check out Juliet's work at her website, including her newly published book.
Tony's piece is a lovely quiet painting that would make a nice accent to a variety of interiors. Email me if you have any questions about how to get this one on your wall.
I can squeeze in one or two more equine paintings this week, if you care to nominate someone. Send your ideas to me via email.
And a big warm tail-wagging tongue flashing welcome to all the new Dog-a-Day readers, many of whom I met at Orion Oaks Elementary Fine Arts Night last week. Here's the lowdown - one painting each workday, emailed to subscribers usually mid-afternoon, then posted to the project blog later in the day. Unsold paintings are added to my etsy store every couple weeks. Studio proceeds benefit animal shelters and rescues, and I am always open to hearing your rescue stories and any other thoughts you have.
Thanks, as always, for sharing my artwork with your friends and family.
See you tomorrow!
