New Resins Complete

Ok I have finally done some catching up and posted a few photos of the new releases! First up is the Appaloosa Ravenhill Revisted. He's the traditional one and the second guest artist piece I was asked to do. I will be shipping him off to Stacey in the next day or two so those interested in purchasing him contact Stacey. Act quick if you want this one!!!!!!!!!!!!! Next up is my Region 4 donation for the upcoming show in South Dakota. I painted this donated and prepped mini Scarlett a silver bay sabino. She just glows! Believe me photos do not so her justice.
I gave Storm Serge more details and took out the dark patches that didn't photograph well. I still need to finish up the other side just a bit but this side is all done. He has detail to please even the most picky collectors. I currently own this horse and he is up for sale. I am accepting offers over $1,000.00! He's a bargin at twice that price!!!!! LOVE him!






He already won 1st place in his class before the revamping so believe me he's destined to be a winner! I wish you guys could see him in person. Check out the Yahoo Group where I'll be posting LOTS of photos!

That's the update so far. I am going to be posting another update on Sundance Kid. I had to set him aside the last two weeks to complete some sale and commission horses so I have some bill money. I also had to complete horses for the RMR show and the Region 4 donation. So I am back to work on him the next few days. I had to rework some things on him due to the mold issues but I got it. He has a coat of primer so I can seal up the rest of the pinholes you get from home casts. I have to leave on Thursday to judge the show in South Dakota so I won't finish him till I get back. At the most he should be held up only 2 weeks then he's off to the casters! Once I get the pre release models in hand, I'll open the edition!
So, check out the Yahoo Group for more photos of the above horses! Have a great weekend!

What am I working on today?



I am getting ready to deliver horses to their owners at Peter's Stone's RMR this weekend. Grand Lake here I come! I can hardly wait. So this busy beaver has been working horse to get the finishing touches on her horses so they can show and go home hopefully with some ribbons.
I figured I'd take a quick shot of what I have done. Starting on the far left is Ocktapussy (heaven knows if I spelled it right). She's a dapple buckskin that had the lower part of her mane removed so she's tack friendly. BIG NOTE to anyone wanting to use her for performance.... she won't fit a saddle unless you re do that part of her mane. I found that out after I painted her.
Behind her (far back) is the Ravenhill I am working on as a guest artist piece for Stacey. He's a wild and wonderful roan Appaloosa and sure to please anyone who is a stickler for detail. I hope to get him off to Stacey next week.
Far right is the latest Stormwatch I have done. He's a dapple rose gray who gets better the closer you look at him. I put a ton of complicated shading and fine detail on this guy. I'll be takig some good photos of him shortly so I can put him up at auction.

Front left is the silver dapple mini Peasant Stomper (long tail version) that I just finished up. Although I was offering him for sale, someone already came forward and he's sold. He's just amazing and sure to please his new owner. I spent a lot of time shading the mane and tail so he has all major root colors blended throughout. Making that fade to white wasn't easy but I finally got the look I wanted. His dapples are really beautiful with 3 different shades well blended all over him. I LOVE this little hunk!

Next to him is JM's bay Tobiano Gypsy Scarlett. She's going to be proxy shown along with some of his others. I think Piper will even be there! It would be great to see one of my all time favorite's there.

To end the list is the mini Ravenhill with his custom mane and tail. He's a palomino Appaloosa and yes he's similar to Hollywood Silver, but only similar. This will probably be the only show he attends since his new owner doesn't show. Wish him luck!

On the bench is an Appie mule I have painter's block on, bay sabino mini Scarlett for the upcoming Region 4 show, the mule medallion guest artist piece, a CM Andalusion (donation paint job), Meta's duo, Xtara (she is taking awhile being a very intricate dapple gray), ......

and I have a rose gray mini Scarlett that will be for sale. She's about 1/3 done.

So I will be away this weekend at Grand Lake Colorado enjoying the show. See some of you there and the rest of ya later! Have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!

New Book Release


I am so excited to announce Horses With a Mission has just been released. Why you ask? I wrote a story which is published in the book!!!!! It's in chapter 5 and it's called Chevy's Compassion. It's a true and touching story about how he and I bonded and when I nearly had to put him down due to a bad case of West Nile Virus. Here's the link to the book (look on the lower left side of the page for a photo of Chevy and I that's in the book)... http://www.angelhorseswithamission.com/ .


I also have another story in a prior book called "Angel Horses" which is still available at some bookstores or you can order it from Amazon etc. It has a story of Sundance and Chevy going through hurricane Wilma with me!


I am excited about the new book and already started reading the wonderful stories in it. This is a must have for any horse lover and a great gift!


Email me at sheila@paloose-arts.com if you want to go in on a bulk order. If I get enough people I'll go ahead and do it and sign them before I ship them off to you. Just email directly for details.

Getting Started


Ok I am trying to get this up and running along with updating my very out of date web site. I also am catching up on show donations, the commissions I am behind on, getting ready for a show and getting my master copy of Sundance Kid ready for the master mold. Oh, I have to put 6 months worth of entries into QuickBooks, lol.


Other than that not busy at all.


I'll be trying to use this a like I have been using my Yahoo Group although I will still post announcements there for sales etc.


Heather recently moved back to Florida so I am here by myself now. It is actually good time in a few ways since I have no distractions except the animals. Hopefully I'll be getting things caught up!
