This painting was part of the Preakness pARTy that Linda Shantz and I held today. I need to thank equine photographer Juliet Harrison for allowing us to paint from one of her photos.
What's a pARTy you ask? It's when artists work from the same references within a small window of time (usually a day), creating paintings that uniquely showcase their own style and sensibilities. You can see Linda's sublime painting here.....
And stay tuned for the Belmont pARTy, which, due to popular demand will be opened to any artists wishing to participate. You can watch The Virtual pARTy site for more information. I'll also share the details on Painting a Dog a Day as they develop.
Speaking of details, my painting comes with a mini-art lesson attached on The Virtual pARTy site. Those of you who are artists or interested in my process might enjoy reading about it.
Meanwhile, my wish is for a safe trip for all the horses and a beautiful weekend for each of you.
See you Monday,
