Art is such a personal thing. You have to really enjoy art and I love my paintings more than any piece of furniture in my house. Finding an artist to capture you and your horse, well, it's not easy but I must say that I love Vanessa Whittell's work. She really captures the horse and rider and the pieces are not "posed" as so many equine artists tend to paint. You can see her web site here.
Her paintings are large, but they have so much impact.
She's based in Canada and offers a few paintings for sale on her website. Happy Monday!
