Foursquare by Hbruton Foursquare by Hbruton
While scanning some older pics, I ran across this painting that I did way back in 2000. It was done for a juried show at a gallery that specialized in horse art. A great excuse to paint one of my favourite subjects I thought. I love the heavy, curvy bodies of draft horses and dapple grey percherons are a favourite. This lovely young mare was one I photographed at a local drafter sale. Acrylic on illustration board. Prints available.

I love the contrast of light and shadow in this piece.  And your dapples in the shadows are lovely - I'm still learning how to do colors in shadow.  Bravo!

Dear Artist,

I would like to apologize to you for not being able to keep up with the art that has been piling up inside my messages. While i cannot make a well thought out comment about your work, i would like you to know that i have viewed it, and will continue to look at everything you submit to DA that arrives in my message box, for i would feel too guilty to delete any of the images without atleast looking at them first. Being without a subscription this is harder, so i will go through the art one by one in my box, and post this message.

Please forgive me for not being able to be more personal in my thoughts. I look forward to more of your art every day and again apologize for falling behind on my DA list. When i can finally knock out the 2,000 deviations in my box, i will return to regular, personal messages about the artwork im looking at.

Good luck to you and thank you for continuing to make DA a unique and special place by submitting your art for people like me to enjoy and be inspired by.

Respectfully,
-thejackbull
