It will feel a bit sad to take these Sanctuary One paintings, and the Doxie painting, down from the main reception and waiting area at Ashland Community Hospital next week. My husband works at the hospital and walks past them several times a day, so I hear that there are often small kids with their parents looking at the sweet animal faces and commenting on them.  The paintings will be split up and move back to my home studio, the Ashland Art Center, and to Starbucks on the south side of Ashland in early June.  Greeting cards and magnets with these images will still be available at the hospital upstairs in the outpatient waiting area.

Thanks to everyone who celebrated National Horse Protection Day with me and staff from Equamore Horse Sanctuary at the opening reception for “The Horses of Equamore” at the Ashland Art Center. In the end, I completed seven paintings of Equamore horses, of which three were being touched up on Friday morning, but they were all framed and ready to show by Friday night. We had a great crowd, which included three Equamore Board members, and one volunteer, who were on hand to talk about the work Equamore does every day to help horses in need here in Jackson County. I met so many wonderful horse lovers, and had a great discussion with another artist about creating a large horse mural in honor of the wild horses being rounded up by the BLM – so, who knows where that may lead. The show remains up through the end of March, and 10% of sales will be donated to Equamore Foundation to assist with horse care and rescue. Two of the paintings have sold, but are available for viewing for the duration of the show.  Available Equamore horse paintings and prices are now included  in the “Paintings – other animals” section of my website. http://inspiredpetportraits.com/galleries/other-animal-paintings/  Below are a few photos of the evening.

My paintings of Equamore Horses were featured in the Ashland Daily Tidings this morning. Thanks to Vickie Aldous for this great article! I am putting the final touches on the last two paintings today and then framing begins. I should be ready to hang tomorrow morning, just in time for the opening from 5-8PM during Ashland’s First Friday Art Walk at the Ashland Art Center. http://www.dailytidings.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=%2F20130228%2FNEWS02%2F302280304#.
