Percheron Horse in Snow
"One joy scatters a hundred griefs."
As you may have noticed I have an affinity for painting draft horses. For many years I was lucky enough to be neighbors to a Percheron breeder who provided me with endless opportunity to photograph his two dozen brood mares and foals.
For this painting my model mare was showing off her stuff when we my husband was delivering some hay. Needless to say, having a new ton or so of hay plucked in their paddock tended to get the girls rather excited and provided me with a bounty of beautiful horses to photograph.
The original horse painting was done in oil pastel on museum board and was out Christmas card the year I created the painting.
