In Progress "Running Free" - Original Abstract Horse Painting by Texas Contemporary Artist Filomena de Andrade Booth

This is a new painting I started yesterday and I'm sure you'll agree that it's a little different from most of my work!  I've been needing to be re-energized lately and found just what I needed this weekend.  

I signed up for a workshop taught by my good friend Nancy Medina.  We met in scenic Fredericksburg, TX, ate great food, had fun with new friends and learned from a master!  Nancy is an award winning floral artist.  Her floral paintings are spectacular and it's such a treat to watch her bring each painting to life.  She works exclusively in oils, a medium I haven't touched in many years.  Experimenting with a medium that I'm not accustomed to using,  forced me to "think out of the box" and set my creative juices flowing again.  

These are a few shots I took as I started working on this painting.  It's a pretty big canvas - 48"x36".  I love the energy in this one so far.  Tomorrow I'll post the finished painting.
