The Mare & Foal Sanctuary
Celebrating 30 years of care.
As a supporter of the Mare and Foal Sanctuary for many years, even jumping out of a plane to fund raise for them! I thought a much less frightening way to help celebrate their 30th anniversary would be to create a beautiful herd of 30 paintings. The aim is to show the special relationship that is possible between horse and human and the magnificence of these wonderful creatures.
The paintings include some of the charity's horses, my own horses, and paintings that represent all horses, but are of no one particular animal.
Some of these special paintings can be purchased prior to the exhibition in July 2023. If possible the painting will be shown at the exhibition and then shipped to the purchaser. If you wish to receive the painting prior to the event it will be shipped and a print hung in its place at the exhibition.
This is a fundraising project in aid of the Mare and Foal Sanctuary, I am not representing the charity and a proportion (45%) of the sale of each of the paintings will benefit the charity.
Paintings, when not based from my own sketches and photographs are inspired by photographs taken by Horse & Dog photographer Fiona Crawford, or Artist Reference photographer Karen Broemmelsick
