My gosh, it’s snowing here. And the lady at the library says, “Your books are due back December 1.” I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas. What a whirlwind year this has been!
I’m still painting, and fitting in the Christmas requests as quickly as I’m asked. Please don’t hesitate to ask me to paint something special, there’s still plenty of time!
I was looking through my horse photo file from the rodeo this year, and pulling out some of my favorites. Sometimes it’s the face, sometimes it’s the shadows, sometimes it’s the momentary pose — there’s something about these horses that says, “Paint me. Capture this instant forever.”
I loved this guy’s copper color, with the deep shadows beneath his neck.
