In between photographing dressage and painting commissioned portraits, I’ve been working on a series of still life painting of bright, colorful horse show ribbons and shiny horsey things like bits and trophies. These paintings are all larger than life, hyper-realistic tromp l’oeil. This particular one is of lux ribbons won at a National Championship, complete with swanky fringe….. I placed them on polka dotted fabric just for fun! Scroll through the photos to see the intricate details.

In between trips to Europe, Canada, Kentucky and Colorado; in between shooting and processing oodles of photos from a variety of shows and photo sessions, I’ve updated my Fine Art Prints gallery.
Yes, in all my spare time.
Some of the new prints are of photographs taken at the European shows; some of them are based on “Loose Horses” sketches done over the past year. And for the first time, I am offering prints of some of my horse paintings and landscape paintings.
Prints are available on four different surfaces:
- Luster-finish photo paper
- 100% cotton fine art paper
- Stretched canvas
- Metal (super shiny and slick enamel-like surface), in a variety of sizes.
Today’s feature is the Photo series, but please enjoy all four collections!
