This one has a bleak feel to it, doesn’t it?
Not that it should, the pose is pretty standard, but the colors lead it that way.
A cold and bleak day. But one that’s sure to get better.

I felt really lucky to spot a black horse flashing a bit of shoe. I look at *all* the horses hoping to get a glimpse of shoe, but either the grass is too long, the saw dust too deep, the horse unshod entirely, or too much yard muck caught inches deep. I look, and sometimes I get lucky. The sun has to cooperate, too. It’s all a cross-your-fingers sort of thing, so I just don’t capture as many shoes as I’d like.
This one is on a chunky canvas. I stocked up on this size, 1-1/2″ deep, thinking I’d find it easier to sit down every day and just paint something small. It’s not happening yet, though.
