The Coral

This painting was done a few years ago and was living in a near by restaurant. It was painted up in Maryland and I was intrigued by the path that the horses created as they left the coral. They came to visit me and watch me paint! 24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed, $900. SOLD

I added two more events to my calendar, one in Bath County this month and one in September called Side by Side: Four Women Who Paint Together.
