DKL Resin workmanship

The Resin Workmanship division at the Devilish Kokopelli Live show was judged by oil painter extraordinaire Steph Michaud. It was a daunting task. The show tables were overflowing with herds of worthy horses. Khemotigre had to settle for third this time around.
He was beaten by his big brother, Rune...
and this droolworthy Lohengrin.
Just part of the Chestnut class.
This Deputed Duke is owned and painted by Sheila Anderson Bishop.
The winner of the Chestnut class.
The Palomino class with ribbons.
Cindy Kessler's customized Nahar won the Buckskin/Dun/Grulla class.
An Eberl Shirley in the roan class.
Another roan--this one is a Sarah Rose Brioso resin.
I'm not sure which class Jennifer Scott's sabino roan Indy showed in. Still, I can't resist posting another picture of this amazing model.
While I'm at it, here are a couple good detail shots of two of Sheila's roans.
We are so fortunate to have so many talented people in Colorado. I just love both Jenn and Sheila's paintwork!
Part of the Appaloosa class.
This Stormwatch came in second.
The Buxton overos and their winnings.
A Lone Star painted by Claire Williams.
One part of the Resin Workmanship Call Back table.
Another part of the same.
Hilary Van Aspersen Rossow's Matriarch was the Reserve Champion.
Heather Malone's Utopia was the champion. This horse's name is Champagna Siempra and he was painted by Pamala Hutton.
If you've never had the chance to see a Hutton horse in person, you just don't know what you're missing. There were no fewer than eight Huttons at DKL, and I took good detailed pictures of each of them. Those will have to wait until another day, however. I don't have time for another post tonight--I've got a neighborhood barbeque to attend!


  1. Wow, those are some truly awesome resins by very talented artists. If I could steal one horse from that show it would be Rune. He is absolutely gorgeous and I LOVE him!

  2. Oh, what a nice thing to say! Rune does seem to have his own little fan club. He's a lovely model and I am so fortunate to be his mama.

  3. I can definitely see why you look forward to this show all year long. Not only do you have some super horses to show, you also have so many super beautiful ones to admire when you go there! I'm SOOOO jealous right now!

  4. Yep, I want a Sheila and Jennifer horse at some point in time.

    Oh, and Rune. I'll happily steal him from you any day :)

  5. The dappling on Rune is just drool-worthy! Do you know what medium he was painted with?

  6. He's an airbrush horse. A really, really good airbrush horse.
