"Taylor and Tig"

I recently completed this painting for a lovely family near Knoxville, TN. We connected at the Webb School Art show (Artxtravaganza) and they commissioned me to do a portrait of their daughter and her horse. It was a joy to paint. A fun aspect was painting Taylor’s red hair and Tig’s chestnut coat. What a great match they make! It warms my heart to see a former racehorse successfully transition to another home and career and best yet, live with a family that loves him so much. With the support of her parents, Taylor trains and works hard with her instructor to bring Tig along showing in the Jr. Hunter division.
