Diesel in the Snow 2

Diesel. These winter illustrations have been a relaxing diversion from non-stop work.
Another illustration, this one of Gillette.
"Diesel in the Snow" - an illustration of one of our most energetic horses, Diesel, running full speed after the first major snow storm of the season.

Ode to Brandon


I ruthlessly stole these images from my son, Brandon Taelor Aviram, and turned them into illustrations. He gets ALL the credit, of course, and I'll leave them up until he tells me to take them down!

Work in Progress

I have a fair sized (18 x 24) pastel on the easel right now. It is of two of my greys standing at a hitching post, back-lit. Wonderful play on color and light is emerging. Hopefully, soon, it will be finished. This photo shows a detail of it.

Mermaids and Horses

My father loves to tell the story: "Since Elaine was very little, she has always been drawing. First it was mermaids, then it was horses." Is it any wonder, then, that my work is riddled with fish and horses?
