Jasmine, by Barb Benstein



Jasmine
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  (www.artworkbybarb.com). 

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, http://www.harpsonline.org/. 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.
