Today’s Project – Friesian


My friend Kristi and I saw some Friesians at the Expo in Lansing last weekend. They were stunning. I’d sure love to see one performing some upper level dressage maneuvers.

Anyway, I have soundness and dressage on the brain these days — I am sure looking forward to the day when Clifford is up to doing some more ring work. We did just basic stuff but he could sidepass and did a beautiful collected canter. He was very supple.

But I digress. This piece is about 9 x 12″, highlighted in blue and purple. It’s listed on eBay as I continue with my experiments of color and textures and techniques in equine art.

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!
