Art by Oklahoma Abstract Contemporary Equine Artist Jonelle T. McCoy


© "Goldie's Pain"
Goldie was a gorgeous palomino dun paso fino mare I used to own. She amazed me with her self confidence, steady and sturdy personality, and giving heart. She was a natural leader and did her job with a quiet yet strong presence that just a look or a twist of the ear would speak volumes, she used as little of her power to rule as possible. She had a benevolent position. I envisioned her as a tough and hard working cowgirl who'd wear jeans, T's and boots with a bandana around her neck. When she had a bought with founder, a painful hoof issue, she tried to stay strong but it was obvious she hurt. It was a long road to recovery, but one that she did with bravery and an accepting manner. I was so distraught seeing her pain I painted what I felt. "Goldie's Pain", is an emotionally charged acrylic that shows the circumstance in stance and expression, but exudes strength even still. This 20"x16" on standard canvas is for sale.
