Several days ago I drove by a neighbor who had his horses out and was saddling them to go for a ride.  OF COURSE I had to stop!  We had a lovely chat, and I took a whole bunch of pictures.  I've never painted a horse before.  I have a vague memory of drawing these goofy, cartoon-y horses in junior high, but that's it!  So I really, really wanted to try it!

Part way through I panicked over the eye.  I sort of think I over came that... but part of me still thinks the front horse's head is flat instead of 3-dimensional!  And his neck totally bugs me.  I've changed it once, and now that I'm looking at it again I might have to make more changes!!

Learning, right?  Even with the foibles, this was great fun to paint!
