I just joined today! I've been a die-hard horse lover since I was old enough to know what a horse was. Young folks used to ride horses past our house during the summer and I could hear them coming from blocks away! I'd rush to the window or outside and watch them with envious eyes! I could never talk my parents into getting me one of my own so I began to draw them...I had a cardboard stable full of them! Drawing lead to painting and now all grown up, I've had my share of horses but have done more with the art side of it...
I'll most likely find myself into the horse art section of the forum assisting where needed - in addition to drawing and painting, I also teach beginning oil painting at our local Art Association, though, to date, I can't find anyone who wants to paint the horses like I do!
I'm a 1979 graduate of Stephen's College of Columbia, MO. With a 4 year degree in Studio Art and a minor in Equestrian Science.
Glad to be here!
