Wild Horse Week-Horses in Art and a Giveaway
I hope you guys have enjoyed Wild Horse Week. I have had fun showing you the photos, and telling you some of the stories.
So what do I do with all these photos, other than show them to you? I have been processing like crazy for one thing. We are in work mode right now, getting geared up for winter art shows. We have some really cool art pieces in the works, many of them from horse photos.
I have also been adding photos to my Mary Hone Photography site, and Fine Art America. With Fine Art America there is so many cool things you can do with these photos. What great gift ideas.
For the art we are creating, the textured photos really add to the overall piece. It’s a lot of extra work, but it really takes a photo into the art realm.
Sometimes a photo is as perfect as it could ever be, right out of the camera.
Such was the case with this photo, Golden Light.
Sometimes they just pose so perfectly for you.
I love the black and white effect on some of the images. This cremello was perfect, the shadow of her mane, the lines it made, perfection.
My hope is the wild horses, will always be free and wild. That the BLM will stop the round ups, and putting these magnificent animals in jail. They deserve to be free, and to live their lives as only they can.
And fun news from Fine Art America, for every purchase made in October, no matter what amount, you will receive a $100 gift certificate to NakedWines.com. Get the details here.
I promised you a giveaway, so here it is. The winner will be able to choose one wild horse image from this weeks blog posts, and I will print a 14 inch print. Not every image will print at exactly 11 x 14, cropping may occur depending on the image. Any square photo, will be 12 x 12. All entries must be from the US.
