"Chill Wind" & "Abstracted"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite

Early last week, there came a point where I couldn't paint another thing and just had to take a break - so we took a mini-roadtrip to Aiken, South Carolina and went to the Steeplechase. For a small town, it was quite a big event - #12 was a beautiful horse named Chill Wind. About twenty minutes after the first race the thunderstorms rolled in and we were outtathere - but it was fun. Nice to get away.

Getting back to painting, I had to start with a loose one - thought it would a good opportunity to join forces and donate 50% of the final sale of this painting to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake & Pacific Tsunami, so I would appreciate your bids.

Worth mentioning, the Daily Paintworks group has organized The Help Japan Challenge, including an on-site auction where artists are donating the final sales to several charities.

I will donate 100% of the final sale of this painting, 'Abstracted'.

There can never be enough of your "museum" paintings. Love them all.

Just came across this lovely painting while researching Chill Wind's past, now that he is here being re-trained as a show horse after his racing days finished. Love seeing snippets of his past like this!
