This is the first painting of a string of 6. I...Think I was insane. Either that or I've gone insane in the course of painting them.
So this was done for the graduating seniors at the barn where I work up at college. I sneakily discovered each of their favorite horses there (or just took pictures of their own horses) and then did this. It's just my little gift to them for being there, and many of them are my close friends. But I'm not giving these to them until May, so shhhh no telling. :I Anyway, it all kind of spiraled out of control and ended up consuming the last two weeks or so of my Winter Break.
This is the personal horse of one of the seniors.
Each painting took...a long time.
I might come back and do backgrounds for them, but I haven't decided yet. Any thoughts?
