This guy is special, and is plastered all over this site. He's my first horse, and I adore him. He has a heart of gold with a mind to match - and it doesn't hurt that he's gorgeous as well! We've had our challenges over the last couple of years after discovering that Jax has a muscle disorder - I drew this just before getting his diagnosis, at a time when our future was uncertain. The main focus of this horse head drawing is the captivating detail around his right eye. Those deep, soulful blue eyes that hide pain on the bad days, but show such life and vitality on the good days. As his rehab progresses, the real-life version is starting to more frequently match the inquisitive version forever preserved in this drawing.

The original horse head drawing is graphite, and the dichromatic (2 color) finish was added post-production by both colored pencil and computer. It's an open edition, 8x10 print that will come sealed in a protective photo art bag, and fits into a standard sized mat. The ACEO (or Art Card) is 2.5" x 3.5", and comes preserved in an archival, plastic card sleeve. - Horse Art by Jen Pratt

About the Artist:

horse artist, equine artist, PSSM horse
Since starting my art business in 2004, I have been on a roller coaster ride that's taken me from art, to house flipping, to legal assistant, to horse trainer, and a full 180* back to my artworks.

I'm thankful to get back to my art, and also for the life experiences I've gained.

Things in life that matter the most!  Jen, husband Jared, and Jax
