Talent~Some Just Have It!


I don't!!! But I know someone who does!

My friend and fellow cutting horse/cowhorse enthusiast sent me her latest piece of artwork, and I've got to share it with you all...it's just so cool...





"A Horse with No Name"
by Michelle Severe




I want to share what Michelle wrote in her email:

A Horse with No Name! I think fits this! Besides the fact I always liked the song by America! This is an American desert horse with no name, just a number freeze brand on his neck! This is Corinne Elser, works with alot of wild horses, and winner of the 2008 Mustang Challenge, and a horse she was gentling for a customer that adopted him 3 months ago. I was impressed how nice looking he was, he is out of the Kiger unit.


Here is the photo that she did the work from...




Michelle is doing a series of pieces titled "Working Ranch Women." I encourage you to visit her web site at: www.michellesevere.com and take a look at some of her other work; especially the Ranch Women series. She's not finished with the series yet...so there will be more! Go to the "Gallery" and click on the thumbnails. It will bring up a brief description and some background of the piece.

Enjoy some cowgirl art!

Really beautiful work - I love how she captures the look in the eye of the horse and the relationship that exists between the horse and person.

Does she have some horses I could pose next to? :) I would love a sketch that I could give to my hubby, as we are both collectors of old cowboy gear, and prints depicting the "Cowboy Way" of life. Some people collect "feminine" things for their house; mine looks like a cowboy's bunk house!

Wow! Pretty amazing how talented people can be. Even though the original photo has a lot of shades in it, Michelle managed to bring all the emotions and feelings into her drawing, great atmosphere!
The eyes, the body language, absolutely stunning!
Thank you for sharing this GTYYUP
