I am the artist painting the life sized mural of the team of Belgian Amish work horses atÂ Lehman’s in the ‘Buggy Barn’.Â Â These last two daysÂ ‘Roy and Rex’ took some major steps forward.Â I worked on getting more definition and depthÂ on the horses yesterday and then today, I began painting on the harness.Â Saddles, bridles and harnesses are referred to as ‘tack’ soÂ today the horses got tacked up!Â The team will be painted with a full harness so this will be a long process but very important!Â Already I can see how impressive these horses will look hitched up and ready to go!
If you go toÂ Â http://empty.lehmans.com/author/suesteiner/Â you can see the progression of the mural from blank wall to the current post in reverse order.Â I will post updates on the mural every couple days so stop back often!
Also mark your calenders for Sat. July 12, 2008.Â Lehman’s will be having an Art Festival featuring myself and other local artists.Â I will be bringingÂ equine and amish art to show and sell.Â Â To see some of my artwork visit www.amish-art.com
Â Thanks for stopping by!
