Description my latest work involves three thoroughbred race horses fighting it out for the win. as the chestnut on the left begins to lose ground...the smaller bay tries to surge past the burly bay leader. but the fire in the larger colt's eyes says ''no way are you getting past me!'' i think the burly colt will win. acrylics on canvas board. 10x14. original for $200.
Cindy Beck, Lebanon Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement i have always loved horses. ok...maybe obsessed is a better word. in addition to being involved with horses for the past forty seven years, i sketched and painted them in my spare time[i even doodled them every where]. my work has evolved into capturing the life and spirit of the beautiful creature we call horse. i work mostly in pastels and acrylics but have also used mixed media to get certain effects.
my buddy icon is a grooming brush i painted. there are about fifty of them across the country in tack boxes or on shelves. the miniatures i painted on these brushes were my most popular item.
although i can no longer ride due to arthritis coupled with thyroid triggered obesity [grr] i can still create my own stable of horses on paper or canvas.
i am teaching at the lebanon valley council of the arts this summer starting june 22 on tuesdays. classes for children and for adults. contact me at email@example.com or the council at firstname.lastname@example.org
