As a child, if I wasn't out riding a horse, I was
inside drawing pictures of one. Now, a lifetime later, as the "Old
Grey Mare" my art studio is named for, I am still doing the same thing.
I am still working outside with the horses themselves, though no longer
training green horses or galloping cross country over fences or sorting
cattle on a cutting horse.
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.

I have been fascinated by race horses all my life and the limited racing at the county fair in Montana was always a major attraction for me all through my teen years. Now, with the move to Kentucky, I have been able to truly indulge in the addiction.
