Nightmist was a great-grand foal descendant of Misty of Chincoteague , immortalized by Marguerite Henry’s 1947 novel, Misty. This is the second painting that I have painted for my annual Chincoteague Island Pony Penning & Swim poster. The first one was in the year 2000. Nightmist died earlier this year, he would have been eleven years on July 9.
This painting is completed and the prints and posters are available.
“Living and painting the wild horses ,ocean and
wildlife of Assateague and Chincoteague Island has expanded my love of
painting for the last twenty eight years.The diversity in my maritime paintings
has intensified from living on Eastern Shore and in the tropical Caribbean.
The few years I spent living on a sailboat has inspired me to concentrate recently
on a series of waves, seascapes and tropical ocean studies. Now retired and living full
time on Vieques Island, Puerto Rico has inspired my painting to a new level I have not
felt since I was learning to paint”.
