Hildred Goodwine 1918- 1998
The charming paintings by artist Hildred Goodwine portray scenes rich with harmony and happiness. It is not at all unusual to find cats, dogs, chickens, horses--an entire bevy of barnyard and domestic animals--peacefully together in one scene. Although she loved all animals and paints and sculpted them with equal enthusiasm, Hildred's favorite subject was horses--horses of all sizes, shapes and breeds.
Born in Michigan, her life on the farm there and experiences on ranches in Kansas and Arizona later in life gave her lasting memories that provided her with ample inspiration for her paintings. Hildred often chose animals from her own menagerie for models and in a very special way successfully captured the individual personality and beauty of each subject
