    1. I have it drying on an easel i my studio and must admit, I am liking it better each day. I guess I needed to step away from it for a short time to truly see it. Many thanks for your nice comment, Hilda.

  6. I missed so many amazing art works here, so silly of me.
    I like the colors here so much, these red and blue in horses, which make them definitely not red and blue. Wow. You are so inspiring.
