Art Show


Had a great show at the end of January! (Been so busy that I didn't get a chance to post it.)

Showed some of my new mixed-media series, and some of my older originals. I  had such a large variety going on that I didn't think I would be in the mix to win an award.  Often times judges like to see a coherent body of work.

I sold some art, won a blue ribbon, and shared my testimony to many who asked about the meaning behind the paintings.  It was an awesome day.

Thank you Lake Placid Art League!  It was encouraging to be so well received by so many people!


Here are some pictures, Enjoy! (Click on an image to enlarge it).

Fond Memories, horses, mountain landscape


"Fond Memories"
18 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas

Just updated this image for prints and gifts!

Made most of this painting from memory. Actually I created it from a few different memories of my summers in Montana, and I also combined different horses.  I put the Swede mountain range in the distance, but used the gorge from  Libby Creek to set it all off.  I made the stream bigger than I remember it too.   I added less mud and more water to clean it up.  

You can get cards and prints, and other cool stuff with this image on it!

Heavenly Highlights, Southern sunset, landscape with livestock


"Heavenly Highlights"

This large painting took almost 9 years to create!  It was in progress when we where building a new house, and we also had three major hurricanes that year.  It ended up in storage two different times.  I got it back out from time to time and added more details.   

Originally it was full of downed trees and devastation from the storms.  I saw this sunset just after the first hurricane came through, and was inspired to paint it, but then I was not happy with the broken trees and littered landscape.  Each time I got it out I added more growth and life to it.   Finally I liked it.  My husband loved it and said I should display it, so I signed it and stopped adding more to it!


Media: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 30 x 40 inches

$7,500.00

Heaven's Touch, girl riding a horse at sunset on a beach


"Heaven's Touch"



I did this large painting a few years ago, and now I just made it available in print.  It combines many thoughts and memories from many places.   Poured myself into it for a few months. Created entirely from memory!  Love the way it came together.

Here is what I originally wrote about it:
I have been working on this painting off and on for almost a year now. It is all about contrasts and texture, as far as the technical aspects go.

This painting is far reaching too. Emotionally we all have things that need healing. Sometimes a sunrise or a sunset, a cup of coffee with a friend, or a moment of silence can touch us deeper than anything else at that time. This painting combines some of those ideas: dreams I have had, horses I have ridden, and prayers cried out from the depth of my soul in my most turbulent times. Always God reaches out and heals the hurt a little more.

"Another Piece of Paradise"

This is the third painting in this series of large sunsets.  It is symbolic for the journey we are on.  Many times we come through the dry and harsh places before we find a season of beauty that is overwhelming. Maybe we wouldn't have recognized it if we hadn't struggled to find better things.

This is a palette knife painting, full of texture and bold color.  I added horses running in the distance as a celebration of life.


Enjoy!

Peppys Picasso, animal portrait

"PEPPYS PICASSO"

Finally finished up this painting, which I started before I had to have major surgery. Had a month of being in bed, and then trying to re-open my gallery, so it has been one of those things that I kept working on in between everything else. It really turned out nice, however. 
Peppy is a two time world champion in the western reining events. He has won other honors as well.  He is a magnificent horse. I think I have done justice to him.

Just before Christmas, my appendix ruptured and encapsulated my ovary.  I went around for over two weeks with pain, thinking It was my ovary. I was diagnosed with an ovarian tumor and cysts, which are common. My ovary was swollen to the size of an orange because all the poisons went into my female organs.  Needless to say, when they went in to take out the tumor they found a mess! A large sticky ball of goo instead of a tumor.  They took out everything. Ended up with a hysterectomy and an appendectomy, and they cleaned out all the poisons.  I am fortunate to be alive, as often the toxins kill people.  I am two months into recovery, and still battle the pain from it, although it is not nearly as severe.

(Click here to read more about the new studio and the cool dreams I had just before my appendix ruptured.)

I thank the Lord for giving me a new lease on life, and I look forward to what he has for me next!

Fond Memories, mountain landscape with horses running


"Fond Memories"

Made most of this painting from memory. Actually I created it from a few different memories of my summers in Montana, and I also combined different horses.  I put the Swede mountain range in the distance, but used the gorge from  Libby Creek to set it all off.  I made the stream bigger than I remember it too. It was always a muddy mess right here where the horses crossed it regularly.  I added less mud and more water to clean it up some.  Plus I love all the splash.  I used some photos for the horses, but left a few of them out and changed their colors to symbolize my childhood dreams.  This painting took months to complete, and then I went back and reworked it too.  

ENJOY!

Tootsie, horse portrait, equine art

First Time For Everthing, foal running

"First Time for Everything"



Got great pictures of this 4 day old colt running around the paddock his first time out. He had a hard time getting here, and his mother almost didn't make it. She could not move around very well, so he would take off around and around, and she would call him back each time. It was way too cool to watch. He lives next door to me.

Make a Wish, landscape with white horse

"Make a Wish"


This is just one of the wonderful scenes along Arbuckle Creek, near Sebring, Florida. I have painted many pieces from my photos of this area.


I added the white horse as a tribute to my mother, who always told me to "Quick make a wish on that white horse!"


I hid an opsprey flying out of the tree, and an anhinga sits on a limb in the water.

Hershey, horse portrait, miniature foal

Loved painting all that fluffy fur!

Art Show




Had a rough start, spilled coffee all over my shirt first thing in the morning, before the show began. Can you believe that I didn't even think to bring an extra one? Will have to add that to my list for next year......


Anyway, I went in the bathroom to take off the outer shirt thinking I would leave my white tank shirt on that I had underneath..... But the worst of the coffee was on the undershirt. So I took off both shirts and rinsed as much of the stains out as I could, and wore the cold and wet shirt (on my right side) that you see in the picture above. Then I hung the white tank-top shirt up in my car.


I did have a jacket I wore for a little while. Thank Goodness I wasn't set up out in the cold windy morning!


How embarrassing!


The rest of the day went well, and I even won a ribbon. It is not a first place, or is it? It is called The Parrish award, in honor of Grady Parrish, who selected an artist each year for environmental awareness in their art. It came with a nice cash prize as well, so I was happy!


Back to the studio!

Sweet Summer, mountain landscape with horses grazing

"Sweet Summer"

Some of my memories of Montana. This is the Swede Mountain range, just across the street from my Grandmother's house. Rode horses with my friends in these mountains. There is a lookout tower at the top just off to the left of this scene. Nothing like good childhood memories.

Momma's Boy, equine art, foal, watercolor

"Momma's Boy"



About This Painting:
This is an older painting that I have never posted. This little guy was born when my boys were around 8 and 10 years old. I had worked with the dam before she got too big around to ride. I took tons of pictures and wanted to use watercolors to paint him, because of the abstract looking effects in the back ground. The image is cropped, the actual painting has more background to it.

Enjoy!

Ready to frame.

Tootsie, horse portrait

"Tootsie"




About This Painting:
This filly belongs to one of my students. She and her sister have been painting with me for a few years now. Occasionally I get to go out to their ranch and take pictures of their horses, dogs, and cattle. The ride out (on the back of a four wheeler) was way more than I expected! A little too bumpy for this old gal! But it was worth it to see the huge bulls, and watch the horses chasing the cows.... They didn't even have cowboys on their backs! They would run towards them and circle around them. Way too funny. It was as if they wanted to aggravate them for no reason.




I am working on a portrait of one of the bulls. He was impressive!




I am also accepting orders for animal portraits. I can use your photos and change the background to fit certain color schemes.




Please feel free to email me at fmcneillbarr@gmail.com for more info. Price list is by size.

Taste and See, animal portrait, equine art, horse, foal

"Taste and See"


This is one I did awhile ago, I have touched it up, and made a few corrections. I took pictures of the neighbor's foal in the early morning, then when I painted it, I exaggerated the lighting and the colors. I also used a loose approach and exaggerated the contrast.

This painting is now available in greeting cards and prints!
