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–
The 5″ x 7″ Aquabord™ paintings are available on my website for $35 each plus shipping. The notecard sets of 10 (2 cards of each design) are available for $10 each plus shipping. Details on my website, www.allifarkas.com
