Yes! It's true! I waited over a year for my name on the waiting list to come to the top and it finally happened! I got to host Ms. Chick, Senor Gallo and Bianca (with her chicks). My conure Bella, was not too happy with me on Mother's Day when I sat them by the flowers my daughter gave me and treated them to one of Bella's favorite treats, Avi-cakes.
Janine Suurenan in Spain posts the most amazing horse photos on Paint My Photo. This is one that really inspired me to paint. I love looking at horses - just terrified being near them! Now I want to paint more, they are so elegant and noble.
"My painting of Horse in Sunlight is the most beautiful piece of art that I have acquired in years. It really speaks to me! So much so that, although I intended to give it to the girl who has cared for my horses for me while I've been ill, I cannot part with it! It is stunning, so much more beautiful than the posting showed it. I want to thank you for painting this so that I can have this beautiful rendering of a horse who looks just like my Howling Moon.
I'll just have to look for something else to give Alma! lol
Thanks again for enriching my life so much and please accept my apology for not letting you know it arrived."
Painted in my Weekly Painting Class with Dan Edmundson. I am fascinated with painting water; it's hard for me so this took quite a few weeks to get to the point I was happy with it. Hope you enjoy it, too.
