Thanks to my friends who've inquired about me being MIA. I've been getting lemons on a silver platter, hence my disappearance, but I have been attempting to make lemonade from them. I just finished this one now -- a portrait I did on a whim. The horse is named Misha and is an Arabian gelding owned by Belinda. I took a small downloaded photo and worked from that. It's on an 8" x 10" wooden panel. Frankly, I'm amazed. I was one of those annoying teenage girls who spent my entire school day doodling horses in the margins of my notebooks, but I haven't so much as drawn a stick horse since the 1990s, let alone paint one. Who knew it could be such fun?
