Field of Dreams

Field of Dreams

Follow me into fields of dreams

Where the honey-scented lupine revives your imagination

Purple, the color of intuition and insight

Black, the color of mystery and midnight

Together we will go on a journey

To the meadows your soul remembers

  • THE STORY BEHIND THE ART

    This painting depicts how inspiring it is to see a horse running free. Especially if that horse is running to meet you. All that power and joy, at once dreamlike, and very, very real.

     

    I did not get to meet this gorgeous horse, but like you I wished I could have been there to see this stunning vision. When I saw the photograph of Centauro running in a grassy field by my friend Jan Gyllenstern, I knew I had to paint it. The photo was already beautiful, but I wanted to make it even more so; to recreate it as a timeless dream, rather than a moment frozen in time.

     

    I chose the setting of a hill of lupine flowers to surround him, setting off his powerful presence with soft purple petals. When I chose the flower, I found out later that they were the perfect choice for the title I had in mind. Lupine, containing the Latin word for wolf, also symbolizes happiness and new opportunities.

     

    This painting won the People's Choice Award out of 400 works of equine art exhibited at the Kentucky Derby Museum.

     

    This painting is also the card for Heart's Desire in the Way of the Horse Equine Archetypes for Self-Discovery Book and Card Set by Linda Kohanov

PLEASE NOTE: International Print Shipments:

​Free Shipping is only offered on Domestic USA shipments and doesn't apply to Canadian and International Shipping. With the variety of products we offer, it is impossible to accurately predict Shipping charges to different countries. Shipping costs for prints are calculated AFTER checkout based on package weight and distance. Customers will receive an invoice to cover any additional costs. Please note that we are only charging the amount to ship, which exceeds what we are offering as free packaging and shipping. Tracking is also sometimes unreliable but our packages have always landed safely. ​Border fees, duties, and handling fees might apply.

When ordering prints: I have my art custom-scanned with the highest resolution possible to capture every stroke and texture of the original pastel. For most of my prints, my publisher, American Moulding, offers a variety of options shown below. I also offer Custom Prints which are made locally and hand-signed and shipped from my studio.

 

Paper Prints and Matted Prints are printed on substantial 180g Archival Matte paper. They are wrapped in clear protective packaging in a flat mailer.

Regarding Matted Prints: The size of the matted print indicates the outside edge of the mat dimensions. An 11" x 14" matted print fits in a frame with an 11" x 14" opening. Depending upon the artwork dimensions, mats are approx 1 1/2" - 2" wide

 

 

Premium Fine Art Prints are printed on luscious 310g Sunset Textured Watercolor paper. They are shipped rolled in a sturdy tube. This allows the larger size to ship economically and damage-free.

Canvas Prints are finished with a mirror image of the art around the edge and mounted on 1.5” inch stretcher bars. They include a wire for hanging and are shipped in a sturdy cardboard crate

Please Note:  Some of my artwork is different in ratio than standardized sizes. They work best with custom framing by your local frame shop. For more affordable framing, consider the Matted Prints which allow any size of art to become a standard-sized dimension to allow ease of selecting a store-bought frame. 

Due to supply chain issues, our current turnaround times are as follows:

Paper Prints: 1 to 2 weeks

Matted Prints: 3 to 4 weeks
