Dan Raphael, Prairie
Local art inspiration from The Art Girls

“The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and freedom.”  - Sharon Ralls Lemon

Hollie Blanchard of The Art Girls says, “This beautiful Impressionistic oil painting by Minneapolis artist Dan Raphael pulls on my nostalgic heart strings as it transports me to earlier parts of my life. Days filled with feeding apples to the horses that lived down the road, and a bit farther down the road, being in Montana several summers with my best friend Brynn. I love the way this painting brings to the surface those sights and experiences. May we never forget, no matter our age, the thrill of being faced with such rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and freedom.”
