Baby Face - Horse Painting

Baby Face
12x12x2 Oil on Cradled Birch Wood Panel
Cheri Wollenberg
Baby Face has a fuzzy mane, blazed face, sienna colored coat against a golden to yellow background. He is the first of some baby horse portraits I am planning to paint.  Several years ago I took photographs of a pasture of new baby colts here in central Oklahoma.  They are so curious and playful (chuckle).   So many times they would kick up their heels, run fast and stop and look straight at me as if they were "showing off".  I loved it and I am looking forward to painting this group of babies.  To purchase this horse painting you will need to contact me personally.

Red Tulips in Yellow Pitcher Still Life Painting

Oil on 10x10x1.5 Birchwood Cradled Panel
Cheri Wollenberg
I went to sit with my mother today.  She has been ravaged with dementia.  Sadly she is aware that things are not right.  She tries so hard to reason, think of words to express her thoughts and understand her failure to find things.  It is a miserable disease!  As I traveled to her home I had this wild idea that I would stop by a local shop and buy her something for Valentines.  I bought a stuffed monkey and a cup of candy!  She loved them.  What a good mother she continues to be...she actually made my day just as she has so many times in my life.   This painting of brilliant red tulips in a sunny yellow vessel and little red vase reminds me of happy times, new times and Valentines.  Red is a favorite during Valentines Day.  We have opportunities to demonstrate our love to others.  I had a small opportunity today.  To see this listing click here.
