2011 12 02 003 copy

This is a photo of Smokey, the horse that recently died and belonged to a neighbor of mine.  I’m still waiting for it to dry a bit more to make sure it will survive a trip through the postal service.  Maybe when it’s dried completely, I’ll scan it into my computer and show it to you again, since this photo makes it look really weird and worse than it really is.  It’s kind of cute, for my first oil painting of a horse.  I hope she thinks so.  I did send her a photo of it while I was still working on it, but I’ve revised it somewhat in the meantime.  At the time I sent her the first painting in progress, she did say, “Yep, that’s Smokey.”  That was before he died.  How sad.
