THE BOSS MARE IS AN OLDER, WISER FEMALE HORSE WHO HAS THE MOST COMMON SENSE.
SHE LEADS: A TRIBUTE TO THE 'MARES WHO MARCHED' IN THE JAN. 2017 WOMEN'S MARCH
A Giclee by definition is a technology for fine art reproduction of an original painting using a high-quality inkjet printer to make individual copies. The print produced from this process is called a Giclee. The material on which the Giclee is printed can vary from very high quality paper to canvas. We select the material that brings out the best in the painting. Sixty-five percent of galleries now sell Giclees.
We would be happy to produce a Giclee in a larger size than that listed on our website. The price will vary depending on the size you choose. We can size your artwork for gallery wrap or framing. Please contact me at email@example.com if you have questions.
The story may be real or may be a fantasy in the artist's mind when she painted the image. We'll be bringing you those stories soon.
Horses inspire us. They don't call it horsepower for nothing. We say someone is healthy as a horse. Or they're a workhorse. Or simply sum up their stamina and power with they're "a real horse." Horse images at home and in the office empower people.
At the end of our bossmares site is a section to provide us with your contact information. From time to time we'll have something to share: for example the first chapter of our new book free for those on our list. So if that interests you, please give us your email address.
Depending on the size of the Giclee and the size of the order, your art will arrive in about two weeks. We ship flat and protected for small prints, and in acid-free paper in a crush proof mailing tubes for larger art pieces. Shipping is detailed in the paypal shopping section of this site.

We think we save horses but in fact they save us.
THE HERD TRUSTS HER TO TAKE THE LEAD WHEN THEY TRAVEL. SHE SELECTS THE SAFEST ROUTE AND THE BEST PLACES TO GRAZE. AND SHE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DRINK FIRST.
AND SHE ALONE DETERMINES WHEN THEIR BEHAVIOR HAS CHANGED SUFFICIENTLY TO LET THEM REJOIN.
BRAVERY BEYOND THEIR STRENGTH AND COURAGE WHEN OTHERS RETREAT.
"When someone 'gives' you a right you should have by birth, the very act of 'giving' re-enforces that you're not equal and are now, perhaps, even beholden. Equality is innate and we take it, own it, and live it. No one 'gives' it to us, because inevitably the giver wants to take it back."
Excerpt from “Equality, Money, Power & Sex...What Two Lesbians Know.”
"Women consoled one another in those days with, "Oh, just ignore him," and I did. Ignoring is the same as accepting and it chips away at our self esteem, which then turns into identity loss---forgetting who we are and what we stand for."
Horses are a mirror into our soul. The horse will be as difficult as we are, or as kind as we are, or as angry as we are. We hug her neck to ground us when nothing else can. The horse teaches us about ourselves. We teach the horse nothing she doesn't already know, for she is wisdom on hooves.
We're two women of a certain age who love our country, its women and its horses; and too often don't like the way any of the three are being treated: our country defiled, women marginalized and horses slaughtered. Our art is the way we choose to celebrate women and protest injustice.
We live on a ranch with a herd of horses who occasionally end up on canvas, making their contribution to feminist art. We're also published writers, first in L.A. developing and writing screenplays and later as authors of women's mysteries and romances. So while we've spent decades in the corporate world, we're now committed full time to creating art and literature...a bold announcement but if not now, when?
Writing and painting is what makes us happy and when you find happiness you want to embrace it. We hope our work makes people who come to this site feel they've found a kindred spirit and horse art that moves them.
We're blogging Mondays and Thursdays from our ranch... talking about what horse women talk about...politics, and the weather, and horse care, and tack, and if we should get another horse...
We'd love to stay in touch to inform you of upcoming events, new artwork and interesting blogs. If you're okay with that, scroll down to "Keep Me In The Loop" and enter your email.
