Painting - Colored Pencil On Mat Board
An original 11x14 colored pencil painting on light ivory mat board.
My model for this painting was a very fine bay filly I had the opportunity to see race and to photograph at the Midland County Fairgrounds in August 1999. Her name is Raspberry Worthy.
That day was the day for the Spartan Futurity - Two-Year-Old Filly Trot, an annual event for Michigan harness racing at the Midland facility. I photographed each of the Spartan races and later searched through the photographs looking for good subjects.
Raspberry Worthy appeared in full glory and at speed, but the images of her after the race caught my attention. She was one tired horse!
She looked like she belonged in the winner's circle. The contrast of weariness and rightness caught my eye in the photographs and is what I attempted to capture in colored pencil.
