Horseshoe #1

This painting from 1994 was shown at Wustum Museum of Fine Arts, Racine, Wisconsin... probably in 1994.
It's one of the ones I'm hoping to sell on Monday.

Gawrsh dang I love horseshoes! I tossed at least 100 shoes every day (sometimes 300) this summer... But now the weather is dark, cold, and dreary and my pits are muddy. My horseshoe pitt'zZ that izz... I'm still at about 40 percent ringers (with an occasional 50%). I like my Snyder E-Z Flip II shoes, but just bought a pair of Bronco Pro Flips (I toss a flip style) that I think I like even better!

Good luck with the painting.

Keep us posted!

Thanks for the encouragement guys.
Ed, I love to pitch horseshoes as well, though I'n no where as good at it as you are. Years ago (another lifetime, really) a friend came around on my birthday with all the makings to construct proper pits... clay and all! We'd spend a couple hours at it most every night after work. Later I measured the distance between the pins with a little centimeter rule that Robin Crozier sent for a measuring project he was conducting.
Unfortunately, I've moved several times since then and no longer have the space.
You can bet the results of this presentation will make it into my blog.

I love this painting. I really like your style. Minimal subject matter with rich coloring. I would be very interested to see more of your works for sale.

On another note, have you ever pitched washers?

I've seen a rubber band

I've seen a needle that winked its eye

Until I saw a horseshoe fly!
