The $40,000 2015 Music Country Grand Prix is in just two weeks! What a fun afternoon full of activities for all ages at Brownland Farm in Franklin, Tn. Nashville folks...mark your calendars and plan to be there!
Shown here is the oil painting that I completed for the advertising image for this year's event. It was inspired by a photograph taken by Lili Weik and shows last year's winners of the Grand Prix, "Quattro" and Daniel Bedoya.
The gates open along with the silent auction and "People Prix" at 3:30 pm on Saturday May 30. The Grand Prix itself starts at 5p.m. Rain or shine. It's a great way to have a wonderful afternoon with friends and family while supporting Nashville's premier therapeutic Riding program, "SADDLE UP!"
Last weekend was the 2015 Lipscomb Academy Art event. What a wonderful weekend it was meeting so many new people, both artists and art lovers. Thank you to all who attended in person or in spirit! Here is a snapshot of my booth this year. I'm very happy with the number of paintings and prints that are now located in their new homes. The organizers of the art event worked hard to make everything so comfortable and inviting for artists and attendees alike. Thanks to all and hope to see you again next year.
I’m an artist working near Nashville, Tn. Painting Equine subjects in oil is my specialty. Childhood years were filled with caring for,riding and showing horses. Next came graduating from the University of Delaware with a degree in Art Education. I continued study in Illustration at the Philadelphia College of Art. My first job out of college was teaching art at The Sanford School in Delaware. After a few years I married and moved to North Carolina. Next was a position as an illustrator for the North Carolina Underwater Archaeology Lab working on the USS Monitor project. In those early years we had two sons who gave us more joy than I can describe. They still do. We raised our family in Tennessee and still love it here. Returning to my love of horses and art, I officially started my Lakehill Studio business in 2006. My paintings have since been published in numerous equine themed publications on the covers and in featured articles. So, here I am, living a dream of combining art and horses and meeting wonderful people along the way.
