Where Buffalo Roams

Where Buffalo Roams is a pastel painting meant to be done plein aire for Bigfork museums annual auction. The weather however did not cooperate so it had to be finished in my studio, which is by the way, directly behind the barn up against the range. The horse in the photo is a very loved Paco Fino gelding named, Buffalo, hence the title, who's best friend Carol and he, love roaming this incredible land.

This is my final piece for the show, his name is Shine, not his real name but I think that's what he does. He is an 11"x13 1/2" pastel. Now it's off to pattern design land!

71/2" x 12" pastel created for the show at the Bigfork Museum of Art and History.

"Wolf Creek Mule"

Wolf Creek Mule, has moved away from me. He used to live very close where I could visit him often. I hope he has a wonderful new home! SOLD

Swan Sunrise

Swan Sunrise is a painting of two horses that live down the Swan Highway from me. I love the way they look in their pasture, they seem to match their surroundings

"Lonely Boy"

Whenever I would drive into town last fall, there would always be one single horse standing with his hind end cuddled against this old barn. He was alone in a huge pasture just hanging his head and sharing heat from the old barn. This day I stopped to take his photo and he was so happy, he perked up and ran over to me and broke my heart as the only place to park was on the highway where I was not supposed to be. He was gone a few months later so I tell myself that he went to live with a herd that loved him.

The Gray

Boy am I a good liar, or what! This guy, who I call "The Gray", was just finished last week. He was made for a showing in California, hopefully he get's accepted, and stands approx. 20" high by 22" long. He's made out, for the most part, wire and Batik textiles fabric, which is what I use in my quilt designs also. I will post the new spring quilts as soon as the incredible Miss Carol Rockwell does the quilting on them, then I'll post the painting that will be done soon after. Sorry for being such a liar :)
