Art Comes Alive Art Show

Art Comes Alive : annual art show hosted by Art Design Consultants

Litsa Spanos “started Art Comes Alive for one specific purpose: To create opportunities for artists of all levels in their career –  from emerging and mid-career to established professional.”  This year was my first time submitting to the show and I’m happy to announce that one of my equine fine art photos will be exhibited and for sale at this year’s event.  I sent in my submissions back in April and I still remember telling my partner “I’m going to get in show, I just know it! So we might be going to Ohio for our honeymoon”.  Last week I received notification that Vanishing was chosen to be in the show. 

Art Comes Alive- Equine Fine Art Photography by Jody Miller


Equine Fine Art Photo-Black and White emphasizes emotion.   

This image, called Vanishing is of an Arabian Colt I photographed at the Arizona American Saddlebred Rescue in New River, Arizona.  Why an Arabian horse at a Saddlebred Foundation?  Well, the owners of this rescue can’t turn their back on any horse in need.  Although most are American Saddlebred’s they do occasionally house other breeds. Since I’m a huge Arabian Horse fan, I was able to go there and do this fun photo shoot with the horse they call Crush.  I got lots of great images of Crush that day but this one, once converted to black and white struck me as being very strong and emotional.  Black and White photography causes the viewer to look deeper into the image and slow down to examine the details.  Viewers don’t get that immediate flash of color and vibrancy to distract them.  Black and White emphasizes emotion.

I’ve been following Art Design Consultants even before I entered Art Comes Alive. I admire motivated women and successful women with a vision. Women that establish a vision and then rise to the challenge and emerge with their head above the clouds and make their dreams and others dreams come true.
