Feb 6, 2010 – painting a day project

In honor of our recent snowfall, I decided to get out and about and practice some of my new photographic skills…  Our horses were very interested in what I was doing and constantly trying to grab my tripod with their teeth, nudge me, stick their nose to my camera lens….anything to get my attention and try to figure out what I was doing and why was I not painting attention to them.  I had a great time playing in the snow….anyone that knows me, knows I love the snow!  Another 4 to 6 inches coming our way, bring it!!

This is my gelding in the snow.  This is another one I’m not completely satisfied with and would like to work on some more after the paint tacks up a bit but…..that is the beauty of these little paintings, do them alla prima (in one sitting), and leave them.  They’re practice….it is OK for them to be on the downside of perfect….I have to keep telling myself that 🙂
