Messing around with blues and water and ink.
Stryker is a Thoroughbred colt, living the good life while he grows and trains and gets stronger. He’ll be racing someday.
Mixed media is my new favorite. As are dark backgrounds. This is an Andalusian.
The Akhl Teke is a breathtaking and exotic horse from Turkmenistan. It deserved an exotic rendering. Watercolor and inktense.
Little Mouse is 4 years old. She cracks me up sometimes. I try to make sure I compliment her on what she does well, especially since she is small and Midas is big so there are a lot of limits on what they can do safely. Frequently, Midas will follow me around the ring while I put things away, Little Mouse along for the ride for every halt and unexpected direction change.
Me: I love the way you sit on a horse. It doesn’t seem like much but being able to sit on a horse is–the best.
Little Mouse: But milkshakes are great, too.
Leading Midas around under some pine trees for the sake of shade.
Me: You might need to duck.
Little Mouse: Isn’t that a bird?
Me:….Yes….yes it is.
