Creating movement and energy by incorporating varied surfaces, textures, natural elements and rich color relationships.

QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER OF
THE CALIFORNIA DRESSAGE SOCIETY
SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO CHAPTER
JANUARY - MARCH 2012
Equestrian Artist Extraordinaire
by Horse Husband John Adams
One look at the equestrian paintings of Wendy Froshay is all it takes to realize that she has a deep and abiding affection for our four-legged friends. Working in a variety of media, Wendy paints gorgeous examples of horses in the wild, as well as horses under saddle. She says, “Horses inspire me to paint because of the freedom they represent and the powerful spirit within them.”
Wendy, who maintains a studio in her Escondido home, has seen her work displayed in numerous art shows and collected by both individuals and businesses. She teaches private and group lessons in her studio. She also sells her work to the interior design industry, and licenses her art to various companies. Wendy’s paintings have been reproduced on tiles, which have been displayed in many homes and businesses as murals in kitchens, fountain back splashes, shower and bath walls. She also takes fine art commissions on a regular basis.
The original oil on canvas pictured with this article shows the intensity of both horse and rider in the dressage ring, as well as the supple lines of the horse. “When Susan invited me to observe Winsor inaction I readily agreed. Attending shows at Del Mar and Sycamore, I found a magnificent energy emanating from the horses and riders. I believe the grace of the horse and passion of the rider, are qualities that I have been able to infuse into my paintings.”
Susan, who says the artwork looks “marvelous” above her fireplace, says, “I just love seeing the image of Winsor on canvas. Wendy subtly blends Winsor’s strength and work ethic beautifully in the dressage ring.”
Wendy says that she plans on attending several of this year’s dressage shows, where she will continue observing horses and riders, as she develops new ideas for paintings. She is also excited about the prospects of doing more commissioned work for the members of the San Juan Dressage Chapter. “Everyone in the chapter has been so warm and kind. I feel grateful that I can share their love of horses with others who share the same sentiments through my work.”
