Some unusual art is on display in Citrus County, but it’s not the paintings, themselves, that are unusual. It’s who painted them.
Cheryl Ward said she considers herself an assistant to the artists, who paint in what she calls an “abstract expressionist” style.
She pours the paint and sets up the canvases, and her four horses do the rest…“They absolutely love to take the brush in their teeth, and move it up and down the canvas,” Ward said.“It’s a collaboration between horse and human,” Ward said. “I was blown away by how much fun it was, and how they came out.”
When the paintings are done, Ward puts them up for sale. Some have sold for as much as $3,000. The horses’ artwork can be found on the walls of the Florida Artist Gallery, in Floral City.
