The New War Pony 22 x 29.5 inches, Watercolor.
I’m very pleased to announce that I have been Elected and Selected by the Founder and the judging Committee, to be an active Member in the American Society of Traditional Artists, ASTA
This is a very prestigious organization, founded in 2010 by Ed Copley.
Mr. Copley is also a founding member of the International Guild of Realism, which I was Elected into, in 2011/2012.
The Watercolor Painting above is a new painting I recently completed. This painting is at the Pro Printer/Photographer getting ready for Limited Edition and Open Edition Prints. If you are interested in reserving a print, please send me an email email@example.com
Vantage Point 22 x 29.5 inches Watercolor.
Vantage Point is also at the Printer’s and getting ready to be printed.
I’ve been working steady, creating the last few works for the Solo Museum Exhibit in The International Museum of Art of El Paso Texas July 7- August 25, 2013.
Hanging on by a thread, 21.5 x 29.5 inches. Watercolor. This is another recently finished watercolor.
Once I get the last 2 paintings finished and framed, I’ll just about be ready for the Solo Museum Exhibit, which will include 40 watercolor paintings. I’ll be driving there June/July and spending about a month out in the West. I’m really looking forward to the trip, meeting artist friends along the way and getting a lot of reference photos! My oldest son, who graduates from High School this June, will be going with me as well as a good friend’s daughter who is also graduating this June. It’s going to be a fun road trip!
We’ll also be spending some time in Angel Fire New Mexico, with my friend and Gallery Representation, Katherine. We’re hoping to get in some horse back riding in the Mountains there. And, work in a trip to the Monero Mustang Sanctuary.
Thank you for browsing my watercolor work and please share if you would like.

After having a disturbing phone call the end of last week, I want to tell all of you who support me and my art and my life's art journey, in every way, such as encouragement, emotional support, telling me your wonderful heart felt stories about how my art has touched your lives, or lives of terminally ill Cancer patients (I've had numerous stories from Cancer patients and their families, that my art has had a positive effect on them all) , how much fun the children have following my art, and so much more,
THANK YOU! I Appreciate every single one of you.
Because every one of you "Get" my art and my life's journey. You understand where these works are created from. From the depths of my total being.
EVERY painting I create is about the relationships I have throughout MY life with MY own horses and experiences, and I know that all of you who are horse people, or who ever had any experience or contact with a horse, understands and connects with the art.
The stories I weave into my paintings are about MY journey and no ones else', unless I'm paid to create someone else' story.
My art is also a form of entertainment, such as a song/music, books, movies, TV shows, plays and so on. Artist's write, sing, paint, sculpt, dance, act and film, they're own experiences into something that is touchable and can be seen. They take an idea, and use it as a spring board to tell their own story.
It is a journey that each artist must follow and explore in their own way.
Thank you, for understanding and connecting with my art, and thank you for following along and thank you for the support in whatever way or form that you are able to show me. I cherish you all.
For those who use my creative works for evil or to hurt others or think I have some devious reason for creating my art...well, all I can say is:
"I can't fix stupid".

Wow, I can’t believe it has been since November 29th, since I wrote on my blog! That’s just not like me at all! But, with those Holidays in there, working on the International Equine Artists Organization Administration and painting for a huge solo exhibit, I guess…the blog got pushed to the side.
So, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Hopefully this new year will be Healthy, and Prosperous for everyone!
Here is some new works that I have completed as of late:
Homeward bound 29 x 21 inches, watercolor
Passing showers, 22 x 29 inches, watercolor of the Monero Mustangs in Northern New Mexico.
Red Rock Canyon, Sedona Arizona, 11 x 14 inches Watercolor Pencil on Suede Mat Board.
She’s a wild one, 21 x 23 inches, watercolor.
As you can see, most of these are very large! That’s where I’ve been spending most of my time!
I’ve got six paintings headed to the Pro Printer/Photographer’s January 3rd. The watercolors going, to have Professional Prints made are:
I’m blue for you
Safe in the Sage
The Warrior’s Shirt
The Medicine Woman
I don’t have much “News” to share, as I haven’t been entering works in any exhibits. I’ve been creating new paintings, and saving the pennies for framing, shipping and a plane ticket to Texas for the Museum Exhibit this Summer.
I suppose that’s pretty darn exciting though! I’m so looking forward to experiencing El Paso, and hopefully the lower portion of New Mexico!
Thank you for stopping by, reading and looking. If you have any inquiries about the art or prints, send me off an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

The Warrior's Shirt
21.5 x 29 inches. watercolor on 300lb watercolor paper.
This painting is slated for my Solo Exhibit in the International Museum of Art of El Paso, Texas, July and August of 2013.
This painting depicts the Warrior who has been honored with this red shirt, for his deed and generosity. Awarded as a special shirt by the Warrior's Society. The shirt is embellished with Ermines on the sleeves.
The War Pony wears a captured Cavalry bridle that has been decorated with rawhide strips covered in shell casings, brass beads and red and white heart beads. Warriors thought that the thing taken from the enemy during or after a battle would transfer the power of that person to them. Because the bridle is decorated in the shell casings, it gives the war pony the power to ride through hails of bullets with out being harmed.
Thank you goes to Debbie Herzman and her Appaloosa horse, Scooter. For reference images to use for the painting, and for describing what the pieces are.

The Medicine Woman
25 x 20 inches
A Medicine Woman (Nez Perce Tribe) on her favorite Appaloosa. Her status is noted by her basket hat which she wears as a sign of her standing within her tribe. She has had the secrets of healing passed down to her from her mother & grandmother and has gone out today down by the river to collect the herbs and roots she uses in her healing. She can turn her hat over and use it as a gathering basket if needed.
The original painting is slated for the solo exhibit at the International Museum of Art of El Paso, Texas in July and August of 2013.
Platedero, 20 x 23 inches, Watercolor. $1,400.00 USD
Platedero is a Spanish Mustang Band Stallion I had the privilege to photograph and whisper to, this past Summer in Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico. A Northern area of New Mexico, up in the Mountains.
Platedero is a slang Spanish/Hispanic word for ‘Silver’. He was named for his silver coloring when he was born on the Monero Mustang Sanctuary in New Mexico.
Giclee Prints will be available of this painting sometime this coming Winter. The original painting is slated for the solo exhibit at the International Museum of Art of El Paso, Texas in July and August of 2013.
