Meagan Abra Blessing
I have been drawn to horses my entire life and cannot remember a time before I could ride. To me, the horse embodies the spirit of the West, and I find the unlikely partnership between humans and horses endlessly fascinating. Having owned, trained, shown, and packed with horses, I continue to respect and admire them. My paintings are much like portraits, rendering the power, grace, and character of the Western horse in a contemporary realist style set in expressive, abstract backgrounds. My work has been featured in Western Art & Architecture and Big Sky Journal; I received a Fine Art Connoisseur’s People’s Choice Award in 2016 and am honored to have my painting “Fired Up” on the 2017 Ellensburg Rodeo Poster.
