Through the medium of colored pencil, artist Ginny Harding has captivated the hearts of horse enthusiasts for over three decades with images that seem to "come alive".
As an owner and breeder of running quarter horses, Ginny has found that this athlete that's closest to her heart has dominated her works. Her passion, however, encompasses ALL equine breeds and diciplines.
You may recognize Ginny's cover works for such artistic publications as The Quarter Racing Journal, The Racing Record, Speedhorse, The Appaloosa Journal, The Quarter Horse Journal, or major Sale Catalogs, RCA Rodeo posters, or racetrack programs.
Her collectors hail from the backside tackroom to the cupola-adorned farms and musuems of America; from modest homes to palaces of International Royalty.
She gathers inspiration, photographs and materials in her annual travels across the nation to horse sales, private farms, and race tracks; then, from her small studio on her rural farm beneath the Horse Heaven Hills at the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers in beautiful Eastern Washington she grooms each hair of her subjects with her pencils in exquisite detail.
The artist hand-cuts the 100% cotton mats that surround her originals and prints, and YOU AND I FRAMING in Kennewick, Washington crafts the unique moulding into beautiful frames that compliment each piece.
