Artist John Weiss is famous for his dog portraits so if you did a double-take when you read the name of “Cuddle Time’s” creator, you won’t be alone. “But horses and dogs go together,” says the artist. “It’s a natural connection. Horses are beautiful and intriguing animals. They are fascinating to me – the way their coats and musculature appear. There is a nationally renowned stable near me in Ohio where at least 15 new foals appear each spring. And every year, people in the region make it a tradition to drive by to watch the babies play in the fields.” This mare and foal are reminiscent of every mother and baby, the perfect portrait of spring that will put a smile on the horse lovers in your life.
