I just finished a new baroque-style painting I have titled "Piaffe". I am donating it to the Center Theater in my hometown of Dover-Foxcroft, ME for their art auction fundraiser on August 16th. It makes me very happy to help the Center Theater because I have been involved in some of their past productions and enjoy their movies.

I used acrylic paint and mixed media on this 18"x18"x1.25" canvas. I began with stencils and molding paste to create the background texture and then painted the horse and rider using loose brushstrokes, trying my best to avoid too much detail. It is my goal to capture the essence of the horse with minimal lines. I am very pleased with this painting and I hope that someone at the auction falls in love with it.
