The horse with no tail. I am painting in stages, I will make sure I put the tail in tomorrow. I did have to fix the horizon line it was off a quarter of an inch on the left hand side. You will see the difference next posting, and the horse will have a tail, by then too!

in progress. This oil is of a Chincoteague Pony on the salt marshes of Assateague Island. I just started it and am going to show the progress as it continues. I start with a thin layer of oil paint to lay in the initial colors I am going to use.i started this yesterday and will work on it again shortly.

This is a new painting I finished yesterday. The storm on Assateague beach. The beach erosion I saw over a span of 28 years was amazing. The winter storms did the damage. This is an oil and it is 6x18 inches, which is a great size for seascapes.

It was time to change colors on my palette, It seems lately I was only painting in shades of blues. It is so amazing how much time I can devote to painting now that I am no longer working in my art gallery. Operating Island Gallery & Gifts on Chincoteague Island for 28 years,consumed most of my energy and time. Now I am painting almost daily now, it has been years since I have been able to do that.

The painting is done and the prints are on their way to Chincoteague Island! This painting is in remembrance of Nightmist, a direct descendant of Misty of Chincoteague. The stallion's hoof prints are set in the sidewalk next to Misty's outside the Island Roxy Theatre in Chincoteague and he returned regularly for the pony run that draws tens of thousands of people each year to the dune-covered Atlantic coast. This is the second Poster I have produced of Nightmist.
