Today’s Equine Art – Seabiscuit


I confess I didn’t know much about Seabiscuit before Laura Hillenbrand’s book came out. When I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. I was completely taken up in this wonderful story. When the movie came out, I saw it in the theatre no less than six times! I chose to do this portrait in sepia tones, to reflect on the time in history that Seabiscuit raced.

This is watercolor, 11 x 15″, listed on eBay.

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!
