Greeting Cards & Postcards

Available to buy on…

I painted Fuego in 1994 when he was a youngster. He has turned out to be the most amazing Stud, and is more stunning than ever.

This horse will never be beaten for being the most awesome subject ever.

    He has really cheeky eyes Jean, even at this grand age. Thanks to all for your kind comments, this is the first work since my heart surgery last year, and it was a wonderful feeling to be back into the groove again.

    ohj how spoiled am I !!! I asked Melissa to come back 16 years later and see the ole boy “FUEGO” who will be 23 years young in March and paint him again so I now have both Originals of him, Mellisa is THE VERY BEST when it comes to capturing the “Life” of her subject and this is Fuego at his very best – happily in retirement – other than the odd wife or 10 !! totally stunning and made me cry when she revealed the painting to me. I cannot thank her enough.

    Melissa, I didn’t realize that you had surgery! So glad to see that you have recovered and are painting as well as ever! Love your work! What a wonderful opportunity to paint this amazing horse and how great to have the owner love the paintings so much. No surprise there as they are stunning!
