Painting a portrait in oil is the best way to celebrate and enjoy your horse for years to come. My goal is for you to be totally satisfied with the end product. To date, I have paintings in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada, as well as the US. Here are some of the comments I receive.

“I had three 16×20 paintings of three separate horse painted.  Such a great way to always have my “boys” forever. And the paintings are just phenomenal.  I have them framed and hung where I can see them at all times.”  K.L.

“Five stars” B.B.

“So awesome !!!” S.P.

“I feel as though I could reach out and pat that beauty…” P.N.

“Mr. Holder’s artwork is a dream come true for any horse enthusiast. His paintings are so lifelike, and each feature (especially the eyes) are painted with such precision and detail that you can imagine the horse’s personality and demeanor. Looking at the painting, you almost anticipate the horse trotting out of its stall at any moment. I have no idea how he does it, but his paintings look more like a still life photograph until you get close enough to see the delicate brush strokes. We are honored to be lucky enough to enjoy his artwork in our own home”. M.B.

“How do you paint it to make it look so real! You are so talented!” M.T.
