A Glowing Steed

greyhorsIt is my good fortune to be related to a horse woman with excellent taste in horseflesh. When I first heard about Picasso, a grey Warmblood, I waited impatiently for some good photos of him. A few eventually appeared, but this painting does not have a reference photo.
This pose came from a dream. In the dream, I could see them up on a ridge with the dark forest behind them, Picasso’s white hair glowing in the light. When I dream up a scene like that, I always try to paint it.

Sleeping Beauty

take4When my cousin posted a photo of her youngest sleeping, I was smitten. What a delicate lovely face! I left it alone for a couple days, because I find painting children to be the most daunting. But, oh, what a fetching scene. So I tried it. I actually painted her four times before I was happy with the results. And here she is, enjoy.
