I thought I might let everyone know the progression of the horse painting. My Wonderful friend gave "Dot, The Horse" painting to her friend. The gal was very pleased with the painting. She even said that she loved the painting! It's always wonderful to hear that from someone who receives a commissioned painting for a gift.
Here's a picture of my wonderful friend (Jen in the pink), the painting, and the recipient of the painting(Traci).
In fact, Traci went on to say.... " Words
can't begin to explain what this means to me. I love the painting & how it
reflects Dot perfectly...absolutely amazing. I remember this day in working
with some figure eight training, cantering, & then letting her go running
across Monte's field. Before heading back, I let her graze as I watched the
sunset. I remember looking down at her while she grazed, laughing with the
amount of grass she had & had to take a picture of her...there are many
days I wish I could get her back."
What wonderful feedback and such an amazing gift that Jen thought of! It sounds like it'll be a wonderful memory that has been preserved for Traci. Enjoy it Traci and next I think I'll work something easier like a bicycle painting. LOL! I'm also planning on having a booth of my painting at the Fairfax USA Days at the end of June. So if any of you happen to be in the area, come say "Hi" to me! Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear any comments you may have!
