portrait of Rocky by arcadian7
portrait of Rocky
It was a total joy to bring Rocky to life on this model.  He's a beautiful horse and it was my honor to paint him. 

This is Brigitte Eberl's Sioux resin painted by me in acrylics as a portrait model of a real appaloosa gelding.

To keep up with my work, please join my Facebook page…

In time, I may be doing commissions for appaloosa colored horses on lottery and the only way I will announce those will be to the Facebook page.
Monster Foal Camilla to baby bay appaloosa by arcadian7
Monster Foal Camilla to baby bay appaloosa
all paint work by Donna Lorello, Arcadian Creations of Sunshine's Creative Endeavors.  This piece was done on commission and just arrived yesterday and will be going to her first show in March.  She was accompanied by a stablemate mule foal customized by Shawn McNeely and painted by me to a dark bay paint.

Words from Taylor:

"Hi there! I received both today and they exceeded my expectations! The little mule foal is just adorable! And I love the white markings. But the Camilla foal is SO SO gorgeous! I am in love! I really appreciate all of the time and detail you put into her. She is stunning. I cannot wait to show her on March 7! Thank you so much for painting these horses for me! You brought them to life!"

The beauty of the male Wood Duck is just amazing to me!  Photographed at Raven Pond in Stratford, Connecticut, he hides out among a large grouping of mallards.

imaged at Raven Pond in Stratford, Connecticut today.  This was a lifer for me having seen a couple hens one year but never a drake.  Beautiful bird with the metallic green in the wing!

There isn't anything artistic or crafty I won't try out. My first love is my camera. I love to take pictures - mostly nature/landscapes - documentary for the most part as I am a wildlife watcher (birds, reptiles, and all else in between). I love interesting cloud formations and would love to one day have equipment that will allow me to photo the stars! Give me a microscope - I could spend hours examining what lives in pond water and gosh, I'd love to be able to photo those things! I also enjoy creating digital manipulations of my photographs. One never knows what might inspire me.

However, most of my creative time is currently spent as a model horse painting artist and greeting card designer. If you are into horses, I do take commissions on a limited basis. Fractal art is a fun thing to do too - diving deep into the geometric forms that result in unique patterns or designs. And now I want to give sculpting, flat painting, and crafting art dolls a try again - haven't done it since my school days!!

Please see my website for further information.
