Where To Find Handpainted Horse Brushes

I was wondering where I could find someone to custom paint horse brushes and put like a horse's picture on it or something... I was thinking it would be a good gift for my trainer for the holidays and figured I should start looking now. I want there to be a picture of her horse on the left, and then her barn and show name to the right. So could someone recommend me to someone? What are their prices? And of course if someone on here can do them, feel free to share!!! Thanks!

Someone on the Forum was advertising them a while ago. I'll see if I can't find the thread for you.

I'm sure if you requested something like that to an artist who's close to you they could do it. Of course, then you wouldn't have to pay shipping fees if you found someone far away.

I would think you would need some sort of a protecting oat and quite honestly all of the artists around me are extremely expensive...

If you wish to give a gift to your trainer that comes from the heart, why don't you paint it yourself? You can paint the name of the horse in lovely script or get creative. You don't have to do an image of the horse.

And, I am sorry, but in response to your comment about artists being too expensive, think about their time. What is that worht? Folks spend 50 to 70 dollars and hour for a dressage lesson. One hour. Yes , they learn, but they cannot keep that hour. It's gone, except for what you may take away from it. They do not begrudge the price.
But an artist who charges $15 or 20 per hour? For something that you can keep forever? That is TOO expensive.

Hm m m m I don't get that.

I like that idea, I will have to try and find out more about the process!

And about the money... I respect the artists around here, but I am a teen and could never afford something custom, plus I don't think they would bother with something so little!!!

How about you purchase a set of brushes you know your instructor will like, and take them to your schools art clique. I was an active art student and it was my main study in high school. I did projects for the school, the school clubs, and friends. I am sure you could go to the art room and see if any one is willing to take on the project. We artsy types are usually pretty open to new projects.

Great idea everyone! I've decided to instead get her a halter plate with her mare's show name on it since the mare's current halter still has her race name, and a halter tag with the mare's barn name, for another halter or something... It's cheaper, and easier to get, plus I might get a few other tags for other barn friends.
