Today’s Project – Tennessee Walker in Oil Pencil

This is Dollar, a TWH. He’s a blue roan but looks black. He was commissioned by my friend Dianne. Her house is done in southwestern type colors; sage and rust, so I had fun picking complimentary colors to put in the painting.

Dollar is a lovely horse. He was a sort of rescue; about 100 lbs underweight when Dianne got him. He’d been shown in the south and has scarring from cuts on his hocks like they do to make them pick their feet up higher in the ring. (I can’t remember what they call it.) He’s living the good life now!

This is oil pencil about 12 x 16″.


About Nancy J. Bailey

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!
