Here is Angus, or Lionwood Kinsale's Lad. He is an Irish Draught horse I had the pleasure of watching at a large Dressage show in Wellington, Fl. I fell in love with him as I watched him and Heather Bender ( a wonderful Dressage rider) warming up and then going through their test.
I wanted this piece to be exquisite! I have worked on it now a couple of weeks. It is 8 x 10, Scratchboard--a new passion of mine! I hope you enjoy it!
I have many pieces for sale and I am available to paint or scratch something, for you. Hmmm, I may need to rephrase that ;). Please contact me via facebook at Bobbie Deuell Fine Art or go to my website

It has been forever since I have blogged. I feel I am really missing a good opportunity.
I just wanted to share what I have been up to lately. I have taken on the art of Scratchboard, and I am having so much fun with it. It is a relatively inexpensive medium. All you need is a scratchboard and an exacto knife. It is so fun to see the detail you can achieve. Will share more as I go along.
This little guy was at the Master's Dressage Show in Wellington, Fl. He was waiting on his owner that was riding, and by the way she was one of the Para-equestrians.

Helloooo out there!

I haven't posted anything on this blog for a shamefully long time! I have actually started another blog for my weekly paintings called Q-7painting. Check it out when you can! I am posting a new painting tonight!!
This is a work in progress of a wonderful rider and horsewoman, Theresa Brummit. I believe you can reach her site by going to Brummit Dressage. I promise to check on that!! Approximately 3 years ago she was a participant in a Baroque Horse Showcase held at a local farm. I was there to photograph the event and was able to take some very fun pictures of some gorgeous horses and exhibitions. I will post a link to the event soon. This is a large pastel painting on Wallis paper. 20 x 30". I still have a ways to go on it, but I am liking the direction in which it is heading.
Much has happened since my last posting, but for the sake of everyone I will let the past be the past! I will mention that I got my first puppy in July. I have had many rescue dogs They have all been adults so he is my very first Puppy! His name is Winstion and he is a 4 month old Golden Retriever. I hope this all finds you well, content and at peace.
Talk with you soon!

HITS Equine Art Gala 2010 v

It has been such a long time since I have posted on to my Blog! It feels like I am starting all over again. I wanted to share with you all my evening. I was invited to exhibit my equine artwork in the HITS (Horse Shows in the Sun) Equine Art Gala. This is the third time I have done this. It is a dressy event hosted at the very beautiful Golden Ocala Country Club. I usually dread things like this and would rather stay at home in jeans and a tee shirt but my dear friend Andi encouraged me in this adventure. Even made me go clothes shopping!!
I set up my artwork in a great spot near the bar, food and next to the piano, and the night began! My dear friend Andi Somers was there to help me every step of the way!! Big THANK YOU to her!! Some really terrific artists were there--Sharon Crute , Mary Verandeaux , Mindy Colton and Texas artist Joanna Zeller Quentin. The magnificent art of Polish born artist Andre Patre was there as well! What a treat!! Very nice to meet you Holly! Had the great pleasure to meet some very interesting and wonderful people too! I even sold a piece! Thank you so much Diana Venegas and Dr. David Singer! There was a silent auction to benefit the Humane Society of Marion County! Very nice to meet you Mary and Bruce!! All in all a great night!

Newest Work

I am delighted to be able to post my final product of a Stunning Bride named Merideth. I am hoping that I have correctly spelled her name. This painting was commissioned by a lovely woman named Janice. This is her daughter. I had the pleasure of meeting Janice while in North Carolina. She is a dear friend of a dear friend of mine!

This is the first painting I have worked on in a while. I have been busy doing more administrative things in my business rather than the juicy, fun part of creating. But I'm baaaaaacccckkk!

Please enjoy this site and my website! I am working on getting a business Page on Facebook!
Until next time!

A Wonderful Surprise!

I had a wonderful surprise this week! Larissa Cox wrote me a little note letting me know that I have been mentioned me on the blog Tack n Talk. (boy I hope I got that right--if not I will correct it) Also, can be tried.
Please visit this site! It is a wonderful, informative and fun site about Horses, Horse people and fun goings on around the Barn! The Authors of this blog are Larissa W Cox of Larissa Cox Training and Elizabeth Keenan of Libby's Sunhall Equestrian Centre.Thank you so much!!!

Watching the potential launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavour...There has been 2 previous scrubs of this mission. In fact my good friend Maggie Weakly ( was present at one of the scrubbed missions. This really demonstrates how important it is to do your homework, and all the preparation. This can be applied to so many areas in life. Isnt ist said that success is 5% genius and 95% preparation, persistance and hardwork. I am paraphrasing quite a bit--but you get the idea. I can apply this in my life to getting in and making it through PT school, succesfully riding a correct Dressage Test, to making it in the Art World. I think I have discovered that I have more of those traits than I ever thought. I wish the Astronauts God's Speed and much safety in their mission. 4 minutes to go!
They've launched!! So far so good. Looking out my east window hoping to see something, but sadly--too overcast here. On a rare occasion I have been able to see them go especially at night. Quite dramatic and very memorable!
Another week working on behind the scenes. I have worked on my website, mailing list, brochure, etc. I want to get back to painting! Hopefully soon. Will keep you posted!

I have been working hard these last couple of weeks. However, it is all the behind the scenes type of work. I have really put alot of effort in to progressing the business end of my business. I have revamped and updated my website---WHEH! (That was a big job! But I really like it!! Let me know what you think.)I plan to create some nice brochures that are similar in theme and I am working on my mailing list. I also hope to get my Cafe Press store going more sucessfuly. My friend Maggie Weakly has been such an inspiration to me with this and has done such a professional job. And one more thing is to start and develope my Artfire site for smaller items.....

Upstairs/Downstair Antique Gallery is sadly suffering as collateral damage from the economy. I have exhibited my artwork there nearly 2 years and had done well. I made some nice friends in Mike and Pia Ernst. I wish them well on their new adventure and new life in Maryland. They put their heart and soul in to this business.

Oh yes, and here is the completed painting of Bella and Chloe #2. I am hoping to get going on #3 this week.

I hope this week bring you all good health and happiness this week!
