Here's a peek at part of a 12"x12" painting I just finished! Listed on etsy now. The buffalo and the bunny...

The tube beads in this necklace were created with paint--a byproduct of my painting process that I have developed as a fun, casual way to wear art. The necklace is lightweight and strung on a simple 1mm stretch cord.

Doing Work I Believe In!

I love to paint in bright, fun colors, in case you didn't notice! I paint mostly horses, but also do buffalo, birds, & bunnies. As a kid, I aspired to draw horses and make them look perfectly correct. But seeking perfection gets boring and the resulting art doesn't show any personality. It took me many years to arrive at this conclusion.

Now as an adult, I paint in more of a childlike way! I like the freedom of beginning a painting in an abstract way: I paint with my fingers and sometimes even use brushes..I put down colors, scratch marks, splatter, etc. until I like what I see. Then I find the horse, and paint around it. This painting process is more about a capturing feeling rather than an illustration. It's much more fun, and my art is connecting with those who share my feelings about the subject. We all know what horses looks like, but how do horses make you feel? For me, horses remind me of the joy and freedom of my carefree childhood.

People who own my paintings have told me how happy the painting makes them. That is the highest compliment I can have! ~Caren
