Take a look at all my customs and sculptures: (Horse Art Sculptures)


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.

D'or Glauco by Katja Contu



This fellow is just gorgeous -- D'or Glauco by Katja Contu.  Katja feels this is her best piece yet and has painted this wonderful horse a lovely blue roan sabino overo. The color was inspired by the frescos of the 18th century Italian painter, Giambattista Tiepolo.  Katja has given this piece the feeling of the era by adding pink roses and light blue ribbons to D'or Glauco's mane and tail and painting the base white, giving him a look of floating on the clouds.  D'or Glauco is Italian and means "of glaucous gold".  The name is very reminiscent of the rococo era  with "glaucous" being a green/grey/bluish color as can sometimes be seen as a patina on statues (of which he has a green-blue hue on him); and being of gold say it all -- being noble and superior.  Photos courtesy of Katja.
