Today's Project - More Ponies

This pair is done on tan charcoal paper, about 9 x 12". It's listed on eBay.

I did this to accompany my pony on black for note cards as a set, but now I think I should have done these on black as well!

C'est la vie!

I had kind of throttled back on doing horse art for awhile because someone told me I couldn't compete. "There are just too many great equine artists in the world." I was dumb enough to let this discourage me -- and then recently I realized it's not all a big contest!

It's kind of funny how the universe rewards these epiphanies, because lately I'm having more people ask about having their horses done. I feel very blessed.

The ponies are adorable and the Tennessee Walker was very pretty. Don't let anyone tell you anything about what to do. There is always room for more horse pictures. Each artist has his or her own take on how a painting should look. Every one has their own preferences for the kind of painting they buy. So keep doing what you want to do.

Thank you! I agree -- there is always room for interpretation and self expression. And definitely room for growth!
