I began this blog in early 2007 as a way to showcase my artwork. I was looking for a connection to an audience as I was beginning to venture into the world of marketing my art. Painting is by nature a solitary activity. I found posting here helped me to feel more connected but as the blog evolved and I got my art out to the public what I wrote about here became more about my horses and animals.
As my art began to sell, I took over horse expenses from the household expenses. I used my art to pay for my horses. It was a natural evolution because my horses fed my art and my art fed my horses.
I am not an expert rider nor an expert horse trainer. I am just a person who has had a lifelong passion for animals. I trail ride and pleasure ride-- never have been interested in showing although my daughter did quite well in that area. I prefer just to quietly take care of my horses and enjoy them. I love observing them and just hanging out or doing the barn chores. I have found as I develop my art that the creative writing aspect of this blog appeals to me during the times I can't paint. In the back of my mind, I like to play with the idea of developing this further by writing a book and turning my farm into an official rescue but for now I will just share my art, my horses and my perspective on the horse/human/healing connection. I hope you enjoy and maybe get something good from it. Horses and art have a way of doing that for people!
