Mama and Foal

Mamma and Foal 16x20

16″ x 20″ Oil painting on panel

As I recall this was a very young foal playing in the pasture with it’s mother.  This was painted in my studio from a reference photo that I took at a friend’s horse farm near Lexington, NC.  I love the way the mother is keeping an eye on her baby.

I went to Hurley Park in Salisbury, NC to do a simple tree study.  But I saw these wonderful yellow azaleas.  So my tree study turned into an azalea study.  Just love all the spring flowers and the fresh greens of spring.
