Two new paintings on Aquabord™

This one from the driving class at Fox Valley Saddle Association last summer.

My horse Billy was the model for these two.

My horse Billy was the model for these two.

As usual I was able to paint while I babysat my booth at the Fox River Valley Pony Club horse trials two weekends ago. These two are my efforts from that show. The horse and cart is from a photo I took last year at the similarly named but not the same Fox River Valley Saddle Association. I have no idea how much territory comprises the Fox River Valley, but having crossed the Fox River myself I imagine it’s fairly large. At any rate it lends its name to a variety of users.

The next painting is another of my made-up composites–the landscape is from a photo I took eons ago in Frazier Park, California. I took two other photos of Billy running and stuck them in the landscape, then transformed Billy into a paint and some sort of brown horse. As regular readers of this blog already know, Mr. Bill is actually a copper-penny chestnut. I don’t tell him about any of this because I don’t want him demanding modeling royalties!

As long as we’re on the subject of Aquabords, I have a new set of notecards now from 5 more of  them–

  1. Lovely post! The notecard designs are really nice – my favorite is the one in the top center.

      Thanks Lisa! I like these a lot too. The one which is your favorite is another one of my fantasy creations–two horses who were not anywhere near one another when their photos were taken. I liked the way I was able to put one behind the other, in a “I’m not sure who you are so I’m going to hide out behind my friend until I determine all is well” sort of way. These two both live on the same farm as my horse.

      I think that’s why it sold almost as soon as I finished painting it! Thanks, Chris! I have a similar one ready to go, just have to get to it. Maybe end of the month–another horse show coming up.
