Big Girl

Big Girl
(Daily Paintworks Auction beginning bid $350)

     Horses are difficult to paint only because they are so beautiful. If you make them as fabulous as they really are, it looks as if you are romanticizing them. They are mythic by nature and so they are irresistible to painters, but the work can so easily appear trite. Who cares? I loved painting this wonderful creature. In fact, I have painted her more than once and will probably do it again.
