"Just A Kiss"
Also I want to remind you al,l that  As we follow the Mustang Makeover Horses of Madeleine LeClerc and Robert Carlson, both of their makeover horses will be available to bid on at the Fort Collins, Colorado Mustang Makeover event In June.  I haven’t heard as of this writing, if the two horses have names yet, but I will let you know as soon as I find out. Check in on Tuesday to see the painting of the week.

Detail of Tripod and Cheyenne
Well as you know  I am trying to choose from the paintings, the very best for the traveling exhibit. As yet we haven’t had any nibbles on sponsors. We have already had one gallery say they are ready as soon as I am for long term exhibition of all three mediums although we are going to try to do some larger paintings for those.  Right now I  have  4 paintings that  will be among the first 22 chosen.  And several that I might do larger a little later on. Currently the 3 watercolors  and one Oil painting chosen for the Exhibit are : ”Just a Kiss” Picasso and Monet,  “Tripod and Cheyenne”  the beautiful lead mare of Corona’s and her  cream  foal from 2009;  “First Touch” Robert Carlson and his Ft Collins Makeover horse, and    Carmel, the  orphan foal syndrome horse currently in residence at Alder Hill Farm in Missouri.  Prints of these paintings will be offered on Fine Art America with a portion of the proceeds going to their respective charities and to help fund the cost of exhibition.
