Three more little ink sketches based on photographs by my friend Lauren Goodman who lives and works at Blue Sky Horse Rescue in Klamath Falls, Oregon. I can’t say enough about Blue Sky–they take all comers, from abandoned horses to wild mustangs, and fortunately there is plenty of room for them to roam when the horse is ready to join the herd, instead of being confined to stalls or paddocks. They grow their own hay, too, which obviously helps with the expenses. There’s a link to their website in my sidebar. Visit them virtually and see for yourself!
Charm, showing off the only braids that will stay in her endless mane.

For not the first time, but maybe the last time, I have started a "home business". The difference with this one is that it is one I really enjoy. I've drawn and painted horses since I was (at least) five years old--that's the earliest one that my mother saved.
By the time I entered my teens, Mother had grown a bit tired of the subject and urged me to do something else with my artwork besides horses. I followed her advice and never looked back until ten years ago when it occurred to me that people might actually pay for horse portraits. I have had many exhibits of my landscapes, and sold a good number of them--but not enough to provide any kind of steady income.
I'm hoping that if I work hard and market this business well I will be able to delight my customers, make some money, and have a lot of fun doing it.
