Growing up on the ranch, if I wasn't out riding a horse, I could usually
be found inside drawing pictures of horses. Now, a lifetime later, I am
following much the same pattern. Although I am no longer training green
horses or sorting cattle on a cutting horse, I am still raising horses
and ponies and working with them on the farm. While there is no longer
the adrenaline rush of a "Snowy River ride" now, I feel fortunate that I
am able to still enjoy the action through my artwork. When you have
spent years learning to do things right with a horse, those memories
allow you to get it right when you put it on paper.
I do still accept a limited number of commissions for portraits and memorial portraits have always been of particular interest for me. Please contact me if you would like to discuss a commissioned portrait for that special animal in your life: email@example.com or telephone (606) 379-5140.

This is a memorial portrait in graphite of my foundation Oldenburg stallion, Weltstern, who was truly a once in a lifetime horse. Imported from Germany, I purchased him as a 9 year old and loved him dearly until his death in 2012, at the age of 30. He was always a gentleman in all ways, well mannered, responsive and people oriented and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to have had him in my life.
Original is not available, but fine art giclee prints, matted for standard 11 x 14 frame, are available through the studio.
Matted for standard 11 x 14 frame. Shipped matted but not framed.
The reference photos for this image were taken years ago when I was still living "out west" and breeding Quarter Horses. There were several breeders that got together periodically at one of the local arenas and worked together to train for shows. The smaller arena and informal atmosphere made it an ideal opportunity for photography.
