Ready for the Show

NEW WORKS FROM THE STUDIO OF ART BY WENDY

READY FOR THE SHOW - 10.5 x 14.5 - Available

The snow is covering the ground, just a light coat, but snow none the less and Christmas is in the air.  It seems like a long ago time that I captured my reference material in May for this picture.  At that time we were in Fort Langley watching the May 24th parade and looking forward to the warm days of summer.  There were a number of horses in the parade and I was itching to work with horses and looking for ideas.   The parade got held up, as parades do, and this group was standing ready to move.  The horses on the right were patiently waiting but not the other one.  He and his rider seemed to be ready and wanting to move out.  Like me, anxious to move forward and sometime forgetting to enjoy the moment at hand.  This picture was a good reminder to me that this holiday I am going to try and be like those horses and enjoy the moment.  I hope your holiday preparations are going well and things are in order for a good Christmas holiday.

Love your story about the horses. You have really done a good job with them. If you'd like more practice, I know a certain handsome someone who loves the attention of a modeling session! :)

Always nice to see a new graphite Wendy!

Doreen Cross said...

Brilliant piece Wendy. Isn't graphite wonderful?
Also love the posting about you and the horses.

Thanks for the offer Kathryn, I do love drawing horses, well all animals and birds for that matter. Thanks Brenda and Doreen. Yes, graphite is a great medium to draw animals with, you can get so much more life into the drawing.
