More Artists I Admire

A few weeks back while in Lexington, KY, we had some time to kill before John Henry's Memorial Service. I had seen the downtown Thoroughbred Park but never up close and personal.thoroughbred parkIn my opinion, Gwen Reardon is the most awesome living horse sculptress today. Maybe ever.

When I make the big bucks, my garden will be full of incredible sculptures like these.
