Mary's Pasture

Mary's Pasture

Thunder was a wise elder horse who taught Mary about the joy of being in nature. Thunder was a palomino gelding who had spent 27 years as a 4-H lesson horse and a therapy horse but had become unhappy in his work. Mary adopted Thunder to allow him to retire. While he recovered in Mary’s pasture with her other rescued horse, a bay gelding named Chaco, Thunder taught Mary many valuable lessons. Some of the co-facilitators of these lessons were two unique moths which you will find hidden in the painting amongst others. 


A few years after Thunder’s passing, Mary rescued a mare named Maya. Maya and Chaco instantly bonded, and for the short time that Maya lived, she and Chaco created an earthly paradise together. 


When Mary told me the profound stories of healing she had witnessed in the company of her three rescued horses, I suggested I paint all three. When she showed me the photo of Maya and Chaco with the shadow on Chaco’s shoulder, I knew why. To me, the shadow is like the spirit of Thunder, present with his herd mates. Now Maya has joined Thunder in horse heaven. Mary’s loving dedication made the ends of their lives full of love and peace.

    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
