Wide-Eyed Red Travels to The Art Show at the Dog Show in Kansas!

My painting “Wide-Eyed Red” that was painted for a Mutt Lynch/Dog Art Today wine label competition two years ago, is traveling to Kansas for The 26th annual Art Show at the Dog Show! It’s his first trip outside the Rogue Valley, so it’s very exciting! The show runs from March 1 – April 4, 2012….and the link with the juried art is already live – look under Paintings!  http://www.artshowatthedogshow.com/home.php

Wrigley, a Rescue Horse

This is a painting of Wrigley. He was rescued from a truck carrying young horses born to Premarin mares to their death. He now lives in Ashland, and was trained as a riding horse by an artist friend’s daughter for her senior project at Ashland High School. He is so beautiful, it’s hard to believe he was going to be euthanized. Many other young horses on the same truck were not so fortunate.
