'Raising Champions'

Buy it at AndolsekArt on Etsy!

Large original oil...  24 x 24 x 1.5, gallery wrap painted sides.

I have painted horses on and off for some time now.  It's been awhile however since I've painted an true equestrian.  The very last one was a commission of a 'young' girl that I thought just might become quite serious regarding this arena.  So I thought with Spring just around the corner and horse shows gearing up, now would be a good time to have at it.

"Strawberry Fields Forever" - SOLD

Oxnard and Ventura are known for fields of strawberries and tons of other fabulous fruits and veggies.  Lots of little road side markets are set-up all over and make an easy snack for travelers.  Grateful to have them!

This painting consists of OIL paint, not acrylic.  

It has a rich patina. There are layers and layers and layers of various pigments which peek through here and there keeping the mystery alive. Be warned: Various quadrants throughout this piece of artwork can make you linger over them and sigh. 24" x 24" x 1", oil on gallery wrap with painted sides eliminating the need for framing.  Thanks for taking a look!

"Tulips" - SOLD

Tulips and Poppies are some of my favorite flowers.  I think it's because of their elegant simplicity.  I say some because each species has their own amazement.  And each one has sooooo much going on regarding variety.  Variety within the varieties.  Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into. ~ Henry Beecher
