Benefitting Alder Horse Rescue and my new Appy

July 2, 2010 3 comments

 Alder Hill Farm has taken in numerous appaloosa horses in every size, shape and color that are now ready to be adopted and trained.  I painted this colorful appaloosa in order to honor my new appy rescue, Splash but also to benefit Adler Hill Rescue. 

I have several new pieces that will go up for auction after the holiday.  I also am starting to get donations from other artists as well so there will be a variety to choose from. 

Remember you can help by tweeting the e-bay listings and blog posts, joining our facebook group and ‘sharing’ photos and links and inviting friends.  

Thank you so much!!

‘Golden Boy’ in oils

Golden Boy, a palomino and his angels

 11 x 14 Original Oil Painting on hardboard

E-bay Auction (search  Save A Face or artbysuesteiner2010 if this is expired)

I am continually amazed at the beautiful horses that find themselves in the kill pens at horse auctions.  I painted this painting I am calling Golden Boy after seeing a beautiful.. stunning actually,  pale palomino gelding at an auction in PA.   I put in a bid as a home offer… and then a mix up occurred.  By his name another person was named as his ‘home’.  I heard though he is coming to me but I haven’t heard officially.  LOL  I painted this when I still thought he was going to Florida.  Either way he is much better off than where he was.  If he shows up at my place I will post pics of him.  For now you can look (and BID) on the painting.  🙂  As I painted it I was going with a slightly abstract, colorful style and an angel image emerged so I kept it.  thats one of the things I love about this kind of painting… you let it evolve and tell YOU what it will be– very loose, free.  Many people tell me this style of painting conveys lots of energy.  I like that idea because it would make me happy if you looked at this painting and felt good.  Thats what its suppose to do. 

Take care and thanks for following and sharing links here and to the e-bay listings.  A portion of the proceeds of this piece will  go back to as thanks for helping this ‘golden boy’ find a new home- where ever that may be!

Update on the 3 Amigos Painting

June 10, 2010 3 comments

First off I apologize for the poor quality photos.  I love my working studio but about 5:00- 6:00 PM the sun comes in directly and then I have to start moving my easle so I don’t bake!   🙂  I scooted my easle as far away as I could from the sun but kept getting a shadow across the canvas.  since this is a work in progress I won’t worry about it.  I’ll take another, nicer photo when i am back in my studio.

I am loving the colors and the composition in this.  I usually don’t paint with straight lines and alot of perspective so this is good for me.  I don’t want the background to be very detailed because I want your eye on two things… first the beautiful mares in the front.  They will be bright and colorful and I think I am going to work it out so the front mare looks like she is about ready to step out… I think there is some symbolism there.  I don’t want this to feel sad or gloomy.  I want it to have hope and direction– since these horses were a big part in getting me more motivated in speaking out against horse slaughter  I think the strong lines represent this movement in me and many others.  I also want your eyes to go to the background where the horse in silohette IS getting out into the light.  Again I see the hope in this since its a reminder to keep doing what you can because SOME are getting out. 

This is on a 16 x 20 gallery wrapped canvas painted in oils.  I will auction off the original and then have limited edition prints made with proceeds going to help slaughter bound horses thru a 501 (c) 3 rescue.

Thanks for following along.  I’ll post more soon.

‘The Three Amigos’, work in progress

I got started on this painting over the weekend.  The faces of these horses is what got me started on this project.

horses from a 'kill pen'

The Three Amigos

work in progress oil painting

They were referred to as ‘The 3 Amigos’.  They are the face of horse slaughter.  Young, purebred, unbroke or green broke, healthy– full of potential but because of over breeding, a bad economy or just plain bad luck, 100’s of horses just like them are hauled, often long distances, in crowded, stressful conditions to Mexico or Canada to be slaughter for the horse meat market in Europe.   

My hope with this project is to give a face to the ones in need and bring awareness to the issues before them and supporting the rescues that work so hard to make a difference. 

This painting, when completed, will first be auctioned off on e-bay.   You can find my current listing by searching either Save A Face or artbysuestiener2010.  Feel free to share this link.  After the original is sold I will make archival, professional quality limited edition ACEO’s (collectible playing card sized prints) and 9 x 12 prints.

A portion of the proceeds of all artwork goes back to the designated rescue mentioned in the e-bay listing. 

I like the symbolism in this painting.  In the background will be the silohette of a horse in the light… getting out, so to speak.  That horse represents the ones that are rescued and find homes.  Right now more are lost than rescued but by increased awareness and stricter laws and regulations, less demand for horse meat and more responsible breeding we hope to turn those numbers around.    More gelding and euthansia clinics would also help.  If you have an old horse please keep in mind it is SO much kinder to humanely euthanize than to send thru an auction or sell to a horse broker. 

Consider subscribing to this blog to get updates as I continue working on this painting.
