Dance Smartly – Canada’s Queen
Here’s another Canadian great I’ve now portrayed twice. The same year I did the Northern Dancer painting, I donated a painting of Dance Smartly for that year’s Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame fundraiser. This 14 x 11 oil was based on both my own photos, as well as some supplied to me by the Hall of Fame. My own photos weren’t the best – taken during her racing days – so I was quite happy to have the additional references.
Again, while both the originals are no longer available, giclée reproductions can be purchased. The initial painting is available either on canvas ($150.00) or paper ($95.00) at 14 x 11” as well as a smaller collector print at $30.00.
The decidedly purple Mural Mosaic panel is reproduced at 12.5 x 12.5” on fine art paper for $95.00 or as a smaller collector print for $30.00. Canvas available by request.
In both cases, the reproductions will be signed by the artist, and 20% of each sale goes to LongRun. As the initial painting was produced for the Hall of Fame fundraiser, an additional portion will go to that organization.
