– 9th place in Ex Arte Equinus 4 International Art Show, 2011
– Shown at American Academy of Equine Art show, 2009
I’ve always been fascinated by the “cave horses” prehistoric art of Lascaux France. The Dun Cave Horse is springing out of rock adorned with ancient rock art motifs.
– Shown at the 2010 World Equestrian Games in the Reined Sport Horse Foundation suites.
– 1/4 scale maquette of quarter horse stallion Country Bay Berry.
The Spin at Liberty is a 1/4 scale maquette of a quarter horse stallion, Country Bay Berry, performing the reining horse spin (at liberty). I was so inspired watching this stallion spin in
his reining routine: He literally gets in a ball and spins like a top!
I wanted to capture that movement in bronze and portray the feeling of “roundness” throughout the piece. Country Bay Berry is an amazing stallion with a sweet personality—he even smiles when he is performing.
I have sculpted that smile and his big soft eyes as well.
