Jasmine, by Barb Benstein

By Barbara Benstein
Oil on canvas, 16x20
Donation to HARPS

Barbara Benstein has made a series of paintings that she has donated to organizations. They are all beautiful, filled with light and  shadow and amazing depth. I love the look in Jasmine's eye, of gentleness and sweetness, serenity and a hint of wariness. That's what I see, at least. 

To see more of Barb's work, check her website  ( 

HARPS, the Hooved Animal Rescue and Protection Society, is a fascinating group that does wonderful work. You can read more about it at its website, The group works for humane care of horses and other hooved animals through "legislation, investigation, impoundments, rehabilitation, education and community outreach." 

A beautiful painting for an excellent cause.
