Winter Wonderland
by Gina Norman

As the powerful Guardian of the North who watches over storms during the winter season, this magnificent white stallion has only one weakness. He loves to frolic in the first snowfall of the year, dancing like a frisky colt and catching, as he twists and turns, as many snowflakes in his mouth as he can.

I started at a very young age. I remember my mother spending hours and hours coloring with me as a small child. I grew up in Wyoming where its winter 9 months out of the year and spent a lot of time inside drawing. I excelled in school with anything that had to do with art. Since school, I have mainly done pencil drawings, sculpting and photography. My mother has been a great inspiration to me. I worked for her when she made yard ornaments. We sculpted small items to life size gargoyles. Horses are my life and always my go to. I have spent many years training, showing, and rodeoing. There is nothing better than horse KISSES!!

A Christmas Gathering
by Iana Moczar

Who says that Christmas is a special time of year for humans only? How do we know that other species don’t have their own holidays, which they celebrate their own way? How do we know that when Santa Claus delivers presents to boys and girls around the world, he doesn’t take time to bring Christmas cheer to the woodland animals too?

I have been drawing, coloring and customizing for most of my life, and love experimenting with the many different kinds of media out there.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Ponies
by Kelly Gardner

Inspired by Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” from The Nutcracker ballet, the artist, being a horse lover, always envisioned horse fairies, instead of human ballerinas, dancing across the stage, whenever she heard this piece. In addition to sparking thoughts of a Sugar Plum Painted Pony, she was moved to write a poem that begins:

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the stable
The ponies were restless; they were willing and able
To glide like sugar plum fairies through the cold winter’s night
To go prancing and dancing for the children’s delight.
Free from their headstalls they whirled round and round
And exquisitely performed their airs above the ground.

Art is the combination of inspiration and imagination. Once you find that thing that inspires you, it’s time for the imagination to take over, and run with it – my favorite part about being an artist! A feeling, a picture, a song lyric, inspiration is as limitless as the imagination. To create something out of sheer passion and imagination is a truly spiritual experience that can only be transcended by the moment you see someone moved by your art as much as you are.

Spirit of Christmas Past
by Elizabeth Henderson

The “Spirit of Christmas Past” is a fictional character in Charles Dickens’ novella, "A Christmas Carol." It is one of the three ghosts who appear in the miser Ebenezer Scrooge’s bedchamber to show him what his greed has cost him. Each ghost represents a different time in Scrooge’s life, and the Spirit of Christmas Past - identified by its simple white tunic and lustrous belt, a branch of winter holly under one arm and a candle extinguisher under another - appears to remind Scrooge that the simple things in life like love, friendship and laughter hold value.

I have a BFA in sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University and have enjoyed playing around with all sorts of artistic media for my entire life. My favorite subject has always been the natural world, and horses in particular hold a special place in my heart.

Holiday Patchwork Pony
by Janet Snyder

Crazy quilting began in the Colonial Times as a way to save money. Originally there was no pattern, no planning, shape or arrangement. Scraps of antique fabrics such as velvets, silks, satins and brocades, often embellished with items such as lace, jewelry, beads and embroidery, were stitched together to intentionally create a look of artistic disorder. Today they are valued as works of art that are reminders of our heritage… and prized as unique, one-of-a-kind Christmas presents.

Janet Snyder attended the Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, where she majored in painting and minored in drawing. Janet is now a graphic designer for a big ten University in Illinois where she designs a variety of materials and web graphics.

Christmas Wonder
by Emily Overman

The ground is caked with snow, and stars sparkle like diamonds in the night sky. All but snoring, a little town sleeps soundly below. Then, in the distance but getting closer, traveling fast in a race against the sunrise, a stunningly beautiful, galloping white horse appears, leaving tracks of stardust in her trail, and letting all who believe know that the magic of Christmas morning is not far behind.

Art is an outlet I use to express the inspiration and beauty that I find in God’s creation. I have loved to draw since a very young age, and I enjoy working with both digital and traditional media. I am a recent college graduate with a BFA in graphic design. My primary interest as an artist is in illustration. My work often reflects my love for nature and fantasy, and I aspire to bring a bit of whimsy and joy to those who view it.
