Horse Paintings

These are works of art, painted by horses at a Mustang Rescue I volunteer at. We spent an afternoon having the horses try their artistic talents out for a fundraiser. We put some paper down, mixed some acrylics and added that to the watercolor paper, and then I placed a piece of mylar on top of that. We then put grain, carrots and apples on that surface and had the artist perform. When the horse feasted on this he/she moved the paint around and unknowingly created their masterpieces! I will post a few more, and leave them up for a few days to see if anyone is interested in purchasing a piece for this worthy cause. (These horses are the lucky few, 36, to be spared) There are several of these rescues around the country, run by dedicated animal activists, but as you can imagine, they are extremely expensive to run. So, if any of you out there are interested in making a bid, just email me, and you will have a horse masterpiece, in time for the holidays!!
