About the Artist

A horse walks into a bar.

The bartender asks, “What’s wrong, fella?”

The horse frowns and replies “I’ve never been painted by Mary Cour Burrows.”

“Mary Cour Burrows?”

“Yeah,” the horse says. “She paints the most wonderful art, mostly with horses in it.”

“You don’t say.”

“Her public work can be seen at ‘My Big Back Yard’ the children’s garden at the Memphis Botanic Garden, The new Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, Lamplighter Montessouri School, The Assis School in Costa Rica, Eastern Sun Yoga Studio, and many other churches, private homes and care facilities.”

“So that explains it,” smiles the bartender.

“What” asks the horse.

“Why you have such a long face.”
