I love a good this-way-and-that composition. You just know it’s a comfortable kind of day with lots of lazy tail swishing.

Here’s a custom piece I’ve been working on for a couple weeks.
It’s time to start thinking about your Christmas gifts. My paint takes 10 days or so to dry, which means the paintings must be FINISHED by December 5. I ship via USPS, and you know they get slammed right at Christmas time, and the 3-day shipping can turn into 14 days. Truly. They do not guaranty their 3-day shipping time. So my goal is to have everyone’s painting finished by December 5, so that your painting will be under the tree on Christmas day.
So it’s time to start snapping friend’s or family’s pets so you have just the right photo for me to use. 🙂

This is one of my favorite images. I think this is the fourth time I have painted it. Thousands of photos of horses, and this is the only time I have ever caught this pose. There’s a lot of luck involved, and patience. And cooperative horses.

Which version do you like better? Why?
