Artist's Description

The work of farriers has always fascinated me. A person who shoes horses for a living can lame an animal if their job is not done precisely. I took the photograph that led to this colored pencil painting while a friend and I were on a daytrip, just looking for interesting things to take pictures of. I live in an area of Texas where there are many ranches that play host to people who want to have a western experience for a weekend, ride horses, sit around a campfire. I noticed a farrier busy working on a grey horse at one of the dude ranches we visited and I asked him if I could take some pictures. My drawings might be described as colored pencil with the atmospheric application of pastel, because I use pastel more to help bring objects in the composition forward or move them visually back. I wanted part of the horse to recede into shadow and the main point of interest to be on the man and on his hands. The original has gone to live in Arizona.

About Catherine Gauldin

I find inspiration for my art in the world around me. There's a story behind every one of my colored pencil drawings; they are part of my life and experience. I draw inspiration from the natural world, from my life-long love of horses and other animals, from my background in Architecture and Design and from my fascination with people and the nobility of capturing the fleeting moments of ordinary life. ‚Äč Each artist must find a comfortable medium to work in and for me that is colored pencil. I like the level of fine detail I can get but I don't limit myself to any particular subject. Instead I let my experiences of the moment direct my path. Life is a momentous journey, and I'm just enjoying the ride.
