"Colt McCoy"
Belgian Warmblood Portrait
By Theresa Paden

8" X 10" Charcoal on Canson paper
Sold

This adorable little guy is Colt McCoy. 
He belongs to my friend, and next door neighbor, Tally. 
Colt was born on May10, 2010 to Irish Linen, 
a premium Belgian Warmblood mare.
At the 2010 annual inspection, the Keuring, he was 
rated number two in the United States, 
missing the number one spot by only one point! 
He's much larger now and I love to see this gorgeous
horse running around in his pasture!

Southwest Bison, Colorful Wildlife Painting by Theresa Paden


"Southwest Bison"
Colorful Wildlife Painting
By Theresa Paden

20 x 16"
Acrylic on 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas

theresapaden@gmail.com

 The first time I visited New Mexico was in 1988, when my soon-to-be husband 
took me to visit his family in Albuquerque. I fell in love with everything about the Southwest. The colors, the history, the culture, the people, the land, and the architecture.
The light is incredible and is the reason so many artists choose to live there. The bison 
in my painting stands, illuminated by the light and colors of the Southwest.


A Bison and a Baby Pygmy Goat, Bison on the Prairie in Autumn by Theresa Paden


"Bison on the Prairie in Autumn"
Painting of an American Buffalo
By Theresa Paden

20 x 16"
Acrylic on canvas
Email me for purchasing info
theresapaden@gmail.com

Baby pygmy goats are so adorable. The photo below is "Rascal", one of the
pygmy goat kids that my daughter and I raised. There were three kids in his dam's 
(mom's) kidding: two bucks and one doe. Rascal went on to become the
Ventura County Fair Champion Wether! (a wether is a castrated male). Pygmy goats
are supposed to have large barreled bodies, short necks, and short legs, as 
you can see by the bottom photo of Rascal, where he's all grown up.

Two Smart Dogs and a Baby Bison


 

These two adorable dogs look pretty innocent, don't they? Well, they are 
for the most part, but they are also very smart! They have a 5,000 square foot lawn and about 
an acre to run and play on. Lots of wild bunnies and ground squirrels to chase, and plenty of riders 
on horseback going along the trail, next to our property, to run over and look at. 

But they have decided that all of this is not enough. When you turn your back, and they 
think you aren't looking, they will make their way over to one of our three gates. 
Faith, the golden retriever, will stand on her hind legs and use her front paw to unlatch the gate. 
Teddy, the Aussie, wanting everyone to think that Faith is the bad one and he is the good 
one, will not actively do anything to the gate. He will stay back about six feet and turn his head to 
look back at the house to see if anyone is watching. When they see that you ARE watching, 
they back away and pretend that they weren't doing anything at all! But we can't be watching all the time, so sometimes we find the culprits on the driveway. So far, I haven't been able 
to get a photo of them caught in the act, but when I do I'll share it with you!

Teddy and Faith think they have me buffaloed, 
which brings me to this painting of a young bison!
