Sharon Campbell - Equine Artist Extraordinaire

Virginia-based Sharon Campbell is out there.  In the horse world, that is.  Her paintings have graced the covers of the Chronicle of the Horse many times, her work has appeared on horse show trophies (Middleburg Classic, Capital Challenge and others).  And her paintings can be found in homes throughout the US.  Her work donned the cover of the 2010 WEF in Wellington last year.

This painting (all of her paintings are in oil) is a famous large pony hunter, For the Laughter, who lives in Virginia with his owner (Middleburg):

She does not limit her work to horses.  This painting of two Corgis from Aspen, CO demonstrates her talent goes beyond the equine world.

Alice and Southern Belle (from Pittsburgh) are truly adorable. 

This is Bowmore, a lovely hunter from Illinois:

And this is Chug, a portrait she created for her sister's 50th birthday. Chug was her first horse and he lived to the ripe old age of 28.

And lastly, "The Boys" - four retired hunters who live in South Carolina. These are some nice horses don't you think?

You can see more of Sharon's work on her Facebook page and she also has a web site. She lives in Virginia, will come to your house for a photo shoot, and then you get to wait about 9 months to see the finished product (which is clearly worth it).  Or you can visit her in Florida over the winter at the WEF where she has a booth.  Wouldn't it be great to have this kind of talent?
