The 2007 Germantown Charity Horse Show poster and program cover, "Ali's Way", was inspired by the memories of two amazing girls, Ali Mills and Emma Grace Hampton. Twelve year old Ali and 4 year old Emma Grace along with their families bonded a special friendship during their days at St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Throughout their struggles, smiles, sweet secrets and giggles echoed the halls. At the end of the day what we discovered is, it's the children who truly understand their own support and comfort can be some of life's best medicine.

Ali Girl - This was a very special painting for me because it was done for an amazing young girl, Ali Mills.  Ali, diagnosed with neuroblastoma at age 5, was undergoing a bone marrow transplant which made her home St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital for five months along with her mom, Nancy.  Since flowers and stuffed animals were not allowed, I was assured a painting would be okay in her room.  When I decided to paint what I felt was Ali's spirit animal, I chose a blonde palomino horse running a full speed, hair flowing wildly in the wind looking at her audience.  She was to be running at the edge of the ocean which symbolized where Ali was with her treatment at the time, almost out of the water. I named the painting "Ali Girl," as it represented Ali's free spirit and joy for life.  Regardless of what was going on in Ali's life, she had an incredible inner strength to face all odds with a smile.  The painting remained in Ali's hospital room until the very end.  Sadly, we lost thirteen year old Ali Mills, Tuesday, April 12, 2005.  Proverbs, 21:31, "The horse is prepared against the day of battle, but safety is of the Lord."  There's no doubt, Ali was a true warrior.

I actually live near Germantown, TN, which once was nothing but horse farms. A few of these farms still exist with a good many horses easily visible to photograph and study. One of the best differences between a painting and photograph is the ability to use rolls of photos to come up with a pretty good composition.

"Belle, Shelby and Cody" is in the private collection of Dr. Thomas Banister.

This painting is in the private collection of Tess, Bailey, and Bill Carrier. I love painting white horses, they look so elegant as they move. This particular painting was more about the beautiful movement of the horse's upper body and not the speed of his legs.

I love painting horses. Their anatomy in itself is among one of God's true pieces of art work. I find just watching their powerful bodies run at full speed is art in motion.

"Power & Speed" was the cover of the 2006 Germantown Charity Program and fund raising poster.

The painting now resides in the private collection of Bill Williams, Great Oaks Farm in Ripley, TN.

There is something exciting about watching and listening to the thunderous sounds of horses run wild and free. This wild herd's muscular anatomy gives them the power and speed to run like the wind.
