LABYRINTH, 20 x 24, 2016
Labyrinth was a young foal at the time of this painting. She was one of the most beautiful fillies bred by Friesdale Farms in Evansville Wisconsin. Labyrinth is half Friesdale (Fresian x Clydesdale) and half German Warmblood. Labyrinth is a Gypsy Horse, also known as a Gypsy Cob, Irish Cob, or Gypsy Tanner. They are a breed of domestic horse originally from Ireland. I love Labyrinth's beautiful and colorful pinto color pattern.

I prefer to paint on masonite board because if you make any mistakes you can simply take fine sandpaper to sand off the painted area and start again. I mainly use acrylic paint because it dries fast and you can thin it with water for color washes during the painting process (see below).
