Quick description

Patience and Persistence… two qualities that are required to make any meaningful progress! Whether that be in your art, fitness, partnership, career, breeding horses or in this case… being a parent! This pair symbolizes the dedication, bond and selfness nature of being a mother (or parent!).

These two are based on the lovely image(s) taken by photographer, Patty Wilding, of my 2023 Friesian Sporthorse filly, Vignette, and her TB recipient mother. Her recipient mare was such an incredibly patient and diligent mother to Nettie… always watching over her while she napped in the sunlight, always putting herself between other horses in the herd and her baby…  but she always trusted us with her little one when it was warranted. These mares never cease to amaze me! I am so happy Nettie was raised with such a good natured mommy… it definitely shows!

This medallion is a limited edition of 55 pieces and is debuting just in time for the 2024 breeding and foaling season. This time of year we begin to plan our pairings for the next year while simultaneously welcoming the fruits of last year’s labor… and the long eleven months of waiting and praying everyone is happy and healthy when the time finally comes! It is a time of excitement, hope and anticipation… a beautiful parallel of  both looking to the future while also being “present” at every first moment for the new lives entering the world. A most magical time indeed…

Patience and Persistence can be a myriad of breeds, colors and are packed full of details. The mare being pasture fit with her shiny spring coat as the backdrop for the fuzzy textured coat of her new filly… these two really compliment one another. I hope they will bring their new owners and fellow artists joy as they bring them to life in all the different ways… both realistic and fantastical or deco!

This XL medallion is a SMALL edition that is already in the casting process and will ship out shortly after ordering so the wait is MINIMAL and I plan to have all orders out by 3/8! I wish I could say the same about the foals I’m waiting for however I know the best things in life are worth the wait!
