I began by trying to paint cave art, petroglyphs, but over the years I got more and more carried away with color, and this is my version of cave art. I haven't actually be able to paint any caves, but I have painted plenty of murals, some very large sides of buildings. I've always lived around horses. I love to watch them run. This is a very big painting - about 28x62. But the buildings were bigger!

Elizabeth Sullivan has been drawing and painting since childhood. She grew up around horses, and worked on an Arabian horse ranch in Texas. Horses are a main subject of Elizabeth’s art and have always been a part of her life. “I like to paint graceful and powerful motion,” she says, “and horses provide a beautiful subject. The nature of watercolors is water and water flows. It is a perfect medium to paint flowing motion. I paint in layers using transparent colors to increase vibrancy of color.” Birds, fish and other wildlife also appear in her art, as well as people and parts of their lives. She started doing art shows in 2001, and plans to continue, as well as produce works for galleries. Her unique and original style caught the eye of several manufacturers and has now been licensed to companies who have produced area rugs, posters, coasters and greeting cards with her art. Her murals, on barns in Texas and Missouri, have been published in books. Several galleries carry her work.
