Hey, girl ~ you've his the jackpot AND am I ever excited for
you and a DD!!! Sincere congrats! Your style is truly leaning to
the abstract, and far-from-traditional representational horses.
Abstract and yet perfectly realistic! Nice goin.'

I love this piece, and I'm sure it is even more stunning in person. The highlights and textures in your work never cease to amaze me :)
I think what I like most about this one is he delicacy of the textures, the small scratches in the hair, and the way it seems to be in motion...and it also reminds me of my horse, as well as of an awesome old mare who passed away at the barn several years go. Beautiful piece :heart:

Sorry about your loss, and I'm glad if the piece could evoke a good memory. I'm really quite proud of it, and it has a very good home. And yes, it's stunning in person. :D

The commissioner specifically requested these colours, and I'm glad she did. It's a variation I probably wouldn't have tried on my own, but I like it!
