Not sure what to name this painting. It is another image full of memories…..many horses over the years. I have loved them all! This is acrylic on paper……the first of a series.
Taking a break, for a change of pace from my favored feathered and furry subjects to paint, I have been recording some of the interesting mini disasters that have occurred out here in the peaceful solitude of the country. The worst fire consumed 0ver 700 acres and we have had our share of floods sinceContinue reading “Recuerdos”
I knew that a little stroll with five dogs on leashes would turn out to be a fiasco. Who wants to have their arms elongated for four miles. We have almost zero traffic on our private road. The two Pomeranians stay right by our side, as well as our Sheltie. They get tired pretty quickContinue reading “Big Trouble”
The cold weather makes everybody hungry…Today, February 13, 2011 is nice and sunny in Fairview,Texas. Even Chicago is nice today, I hear. So, why are all the animals still thinking they have to have treats every hour on the hour? I think it is just a habit. I can see a hungry face out ofContinue reading “Crazy for Cattle Cubes”

I just finished my second painting of a series of impressionistic landscapes in acrylic paint. It is a great feeling to have fun with a medium that has beenContinue reading “Abstract Art by Dana Spring Parish”

On a freezing day this month of February, I had the luxury to make a return visit to a wonderful art gallery in San Antonio, The Greenhouse Gallery . Surely it has been closeContinue reading “Worth Seeing”

This is pretty much the opposite of my life style…I am more of a maximistic person. Yes, I just made up that word…..This appliesContinue reading “All That Glitters”
My friend, Sue brought photos of her Brahman calves a few months ago. They are adorable. Her babies are a rich golden color…….This is a watercolor painting on Arches 140 hot press paper. It works well with all water media.
We started seeing these Falcons just about four years ago. The male Kestrals just happen to have two of my favorite colors. I have painted them several times and I just finished this mixed media on arches watercolor paper.
The barn is open for the Longhorns, all two of them, to go into the stalls, but this morning they decided to take a break chilling in their bed of hay that they made for themselves.Notice those eyes that are glued on me. They see me through the windows in the house, the minute thatContinue reading “Snow day in San Antonio”
