Horses, Portraits and Lake Tahoe

 Back to the subject of horses! This is one of my favorite subjects and I am always drawn back to painting them time and time again. 

Oil on canvas panel / 16 x 20 

Oil on linen panel / 12 x 16

And some recent portraiture as well.

The brisk Autumn weather has been so lovely that my husband and I decided to drive to Lake Tahoe to do some hiking. We discovered a brand new trail that meanders along the Nevada side of the lake then follows the Truckee River back toward Reno. It is many dozens of miles long and we only hiked about 2 miles but the views were superb. The lake water is crystal clear and is a brilliant turquoise near the shoreline. It was a spectacular day!
