Three mules in harness This painting was done right at the beginning of the resurgence of mule popularity in the 90’s. We had gone to the Albert City Thresherman’s Bee and as we drove in I saw this trio of mules. I was so excited I almost jumped out before the car was stopped. I took about 12 pictures and …
Horse and Rider On Cattle Drive Several years ago there was a cattle drive that went from Texas to Montana. My husband watched it’s progress in his farm magazines and I was trying to gauge where it would be on the Fourth of July. We use to go to an art show every 4th in western Nebraska and then went …
The Last Of The Line
Paint Mare and Colt We were on a road trip to Nebraska when I spotted this mare and colt. I told my husband that I wanted to stop on the way home, if we had time, to take some pictures of the pair. As it turned out, it was quite a long stop because the gentleman had a lot of …
The yearling pen A trip to one of our local horse breders gave me material for a number of paintings. This painting came frome one of my favorite photos. Once I had the original of this print at a show and a man just stood and stared at it for a long time. After a while I had to ask …

Joy without Measure
My friend Ly-Lee Funk took the photo I used for this painting. She said it would be ok if I painted it. Thank you Ly-Lee! The thing about the horse is that he was having such a good time, he was free and taking full advantage of it. That freedom is what I was trying to capture in this painting.
Percheron mare in harness I go to the Clay County Fair in Spencer, Iowa every year. I find a lot of my material for new work there. They have hundreds of of horses to choose from and the one I call Grace was one of the most beautiful. Light plays a very important part of every painting and it was …
