Roy and Rex Get Tacked Up!

I am the artist painting the life sized mural of the team of Belgian Amish work horses at  Lehman’s in the ‘Buggy Barn’.  These last two days ‘Roy and Rex’ took some major steps forward.  I worked on getting more definition and depth on the horses yesterday and then today, I began painting on the harness.  Saddles, bridles and harnesses are referred to as ‘tack’ so today the horses got tacked up!  The team will be painted with a full harness so this will be a long process but very important!  Already I can see how impressive these horses will look hitched up and ready to go!

If you go to  http://empty.lehmans.com/author/suesteiner/  you can see the progression of the mural from blank wall to the current post in reverse order.  I will post updates on the mural every couple days so stop back often!

Also mark your calenders for Sat. July 12, 2008.  Lehman’s will be having an Art Festival featuring myself and other local artists.  I will be bringing equine and amish art to show and sell.  To see some of my artwork visit www.amish-art.com

 Thanks for stopping by!

About Sue Steiner

I am a professional artist living in the Kidron area. With a farming background and my love for animals and anything agricultural it was a natural fit when Lehman's asked me to paint the murals you see at the Kidron store. My biggest project to date was the mural of a life sized team of Amish work horses at the hitching post in the Buggy barn. I have the pleasure of adding to the murals on an ongoing basis as a painting demonstration during store hours on many Fridays. I also have the pleausre of bringing Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild members to the store for a wide variety of demos. You can find the demo schedule on this web site under the Events tab. It is always a pleasure to be in the store meeting new folks. I find Lehman's customers to be the very best, down to earth people! It is also my pleasure to help network with all the talented artists and crafters in the area.
