“Nocturne” to be Published Soon, July 9, 2010


I just received the good news that my painting of Nocturne will be published in the August issue of the Lone Star Horse Report.  Nocturne was a 23-year old Welsh Cob stallion belonging to a friend who boards my wife’s horse and gives her lessons in dressage.  We were all saddened when he had to be euthanized last year.  This painting of him was my first attempt at painting a horse.  I still miss him every time I go to watch my wife ride, and am thrilled that his memory will be published with this image next month.

    Aww, didn’t know Nocturne was no more. At least he will live on in this way, and it is a beautiful painting.

    Thank you. I’m glad I took the plunge and painted him. It’s led to several other horse paintings now, and I’m getting more comfortable with the subject.
