This color pencil artwork is currently for sale. It is 11×9 inches in size, un-matted and unframed. It will come in a protective sleeve. I love horses and this was a fun project that I worked on. I would really love to see it find a new home. If you have any questions, please ask!!
It has been a long time since I blogged but I wanted to share my latest piece.
I call it ‘A Different Perspective’.
This piece actually took me MONTHS to finish. I hated it when I drew out the sketch. I wanted to see it through. This piece was so tough to work on because I had experienced the dreaded wax bloom that can happen when using color pencil. I erased the chest portion then painted over it with Gesso! Then I erased it again! I just knew I had ruined this piece.
I did not give up! I was able to work it out and it now looks pretty darn good. I have even already SOLD this piece. It pays to stick with it and finish it. People seem to love it. It has gotten a good laugh.
I have finally finished a new piece! Color pencil. Thank you to Karen Shaheen for her reference photo. I believe this turned out nicely! Hope you enjoy it! For purchasing information please contact me here

I am re-sharing R.T. Fitch Blog because he does such a great job of reporting on the wild horse situation. The BLM are complete frauds. They have destroyed wild horses horse herds and no doubt ruined their genetic viability. It makes me sick! Here is excerpt from his blog but click to read and watch the video that shows there is barely a handful of horses and burros out on such empty vast open landscapes. -Jodi
“For several years Straight from the Horse’s Heart (SFTHH) and Wild Horse Freedom Federationhave followed the struggles of the last remaining wild horses and burros on one of the largest HMAs in the United States; Twin Peaks that stretches across the state lines of both California and Nevada. Besides personal visits of our own, several other wild equine advocates have been keeping an eye on what is left free on the open range, one of those advocates is Grandma Greg who has documented her findings and made them public here on SFTHH. Her most recent installment was “Where Have All the Wild Horses and Burros Gone?” which is pretty much required reading for any advocate as it contains links to the full report and many of the preceding documentation that verifies that contrary to what the BLM alleges there are ‘NO Excess Wild Horses and Burros.’
Last week a group of wildlife ecologists did an aerial assessment of what is left and we are pleased to share with you their video and ask that you click on the link at the conclusion of this post to visit their site to comment directly and encourage them for more aerial surveillance of our vanishing icons of American freedom. Thanks to Ney Grant andhttp://www.lighthawk.org for making this possible. Keep the faith!” ~ R.T.”
YAY! I am so happy that we found a home for this little fuzzy girl. She is so cute and sweet. I think we have so far found homes for about 12 cats and kittens. It’s hard work but I … Continue reading →
