This is my only successful large impast piece so far!!!  That stuff is hard to work with but creates the most beautiful texture!  This painting was inspired by a trip up to Corova, NC.  My husband and I love going up there with our doggies to play and see the wild horses, which is always a magical thing.  This particular time... there were like 12-15 of them around.  It was so much fun to sit there and take photographs of them.  I was so busy snapping shots that before I knew it one came right up to me and I was too scared to move... so I just stayed put, I was kinda squating on the ground.  It came up and touched me with its nose... sniffed me out... and then proceeded to keep on grazing until it passed me by.  So exciting... but scarry!  I had to do a painting of that particular horse of course!  It was a super fun special day for sure.

This painting came about after a sad but fun occasion.  Last spring a bunch of starfish washed on shore... well I have a friend that likes going "mermaiding" she calls it :D, all the time.  She goes to the beach and collects all kinds of goodies.  Well, we checked to make sure all the starfish were not living and then gathered a couple of hundred of them.  Back at her house she late out a bunch of them to dry out on this turquoise piece of wood.  I thought it was beautiful and so I had to paint it.  Then I named the painting after her. :D
