Hartsville Horses & The Scottsdale Artist's School

Good news .... My painting, Hartsville Horses has been chosen for inclusion in the 2011 Scottsdale Artist's School "The Best and the Brightest" juried art show and sale. I'll be packing this painting up in a few weeks and sending it to Arizona to hang at the show which runs at the school from January 8 through March 15 2011. The paintings in this show will also be shown at the Celebration of Fine Art in Scottsdale.

I painted these draft horses at a farm on the road from Gallatin to Hartsville, TN. The back light was irresistible and I just had to paint this one. The horse on the right was the subject of a smaller painting that I did a while back that was on the cover of "The Barn Book" in 2009. That one was so much fun to paint that I just had to do more here they are ..."Hartsville Horses", oil on canvas, 10 x 20.
