before i created the 'red horse' image i had this blue one to create.  the initial request was for the red one but the process required this blue one.  it seems fitting given that i can say i developed my style or technique through the work i did painting clouds.  i "knew" the horse would "appear" in the clouds...

this is the "red horse" painting.  before i was asked to create this painting i had just gone through a period in which i questioned my "art". the why of it.  i had gone through a process from which i was not certain how to proceed.  then i got the horse request and some real possibility opened up as far as how to proceed making paintings.  these painitings are each about 2 feet by 3 feet, with a black hemp string stitch for the border.  i prefer to paint on unstretched canvas and i was aiming to create "something unique" as an object.  they both have a raw/rustic feel...homemade and something that could be rolled up carried on a horse. 

these two images are from the 'cloudstickpeople' series...both later.  this image above is one of my favorites and is about 4.5 feet by 3 feet or so. 

this is maybe 2.5 feet by 4 feet...and hangs in our living room...
