I'm really loving getting into the sculptural aspect of equine art.  So, while I will still take on commission paintings of your horses, dogs and cats, my focus and goals for now will be the horse in 3D form.  My first resin cast offering has gone superbly well, and must thank everyone for their support of this piece.  It wouldn't have been possible without you!

 

Again, I would like to stress that this site is for your viewing pleasure and I do not take kindly to others stealing my copyrighted images.  Anyone caught stealing my images will not be let off lightly.  A word of warning.

Landaluce

 

 

Landaluce

 

"Landaluce, Laffit Pincay, Jr. up".  A study of Champion two-year-old filly, “Landaluce”, this format was chosen to show the personality of the horse and the confidence of the rider in the mount.

 

Landaluce captured the public's heart as an undefeated two-year-old. She broke their hearts when she suddenly died, on a day meant to have marked her probable sixth victory celebration in a row. Two weeks later, on a day that might have marked her seventh, and final, victory of the season, her fans gathered at her burial at Hollywood Park to pay final tribute to the courageous filly -- one of the most memorable runners of all time.

 

Every superlative in the books has been used to describe the brilliant two-year-old Landaluce. In her first time on the track, Landaluce startled the racing world by breaking her maiden by seven lengths in 1:08 1/5 for the six furlongs. She raced into history with a series of stakes wins, hitting her stride with remarkable victories of 21, 6 1/2, 10, and 2 lengths in flawless execution.

 

No California-based two-year-old had ever won an Eclipse Award before Landaluce. A daughter of 1977 Horse of the Year and Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew, out of that great horse's first crop of foals, Landaluce attracted widespread attention and interest. She was a fitting daughter of the famed Seattle Slew, showing early ability and the same blazing speed that characterized her sire.

 

After five wins, Landaluce was clearly racing toward an outstanding destiny, but it wasn't the kind anyone could have predicted. For on Nov 28, 1982, the classy little filly died of pneumonia. Death took her suddenly, but not before she had crossed the line, which separates merely great horses from legends. With her unbroken string of wins, Landaluce had already skyrocketed into the public's hearts and affection as one of the top performers of all time.
