Dark Horse


Here is my latest equine fine art painting for a horse owner client. They used to own this guy as a show horse but had to retire him due to arthritis in his back end. His name was Stanby Slew and he was a grandson of the great, undefeated, 1977 Triple Crown Winner, Seattle Slew. From what my client has said, he looked almost exactly like his famous grandfather. I love his soulful, proud eye (always my favorite part of a horse to paint). Enjoy!
