North Country Night Lights by Erich Fritz

Original is 16" x 20" acrylic on Masonite. Ruth Harper, a friend of mine, is a fantastic photographer. She does shots of almost anything, but my favorites are her horses. I was browsing her photos one day and came across this shot of what looked to me to be a draft horse. I asked her about it and she told me his name was Dillenger and that he was a quarter horse/ draft horse cross. He is a rescue horse at Lost Creek Ranch in Ellsworth, WI. He has become a favorite of many of the students as a lesson horse. I asked her if I could use the photo for reference on a painting and she said yes. The shot was in color, but in my mind's eye, I saw it in sepia tones. So I painted it with all browns and white. From what I've been told, he has a great personality, so this is my tribute to him and Lost Creek Ranch.
